I can completely relate. After #7 was born we mutually decided that DH would get a V. The morning it was scheduled I started having second thoughts. I didn't say anything because I thought it was normal to feel unsure/sad that this part of our lives were ending. Well, that feeling got 1000 times worse after it was done and after a lot of discussion we have decided to have it reversed early next year. We agreed that we didn't want a baby right now, but did want the option later on if we both. We are realistic that reversals don't always work, but it will give us a better chance than we have now.

One of our big reasons for getting the V was that condoms don't work for DH and I can't do hormonal BC. So, we are going to use a barrier method of some kind + spermicide. Not as effective, but if we end up with more kids we are both okay with that.
