Note: This is a comment I posted in response to “Contributed Story: Private Man’s Vasectomy Venture” by Collin at Expat Chronicles, a very good blog where I discover a different point of view about Colombia with interesting stories that normal people would never be able to live on their boring lives.
Hahaha I don’t know If I really want to have kids. First, I have a congenital disease. The same one that kept my dad on dialysis for several years and almost killed him in the transplant.
Second, I fucked a girl I met in the Transmilenio without using a condom and I know she wasn’t on the pill (like most colombianas who are illiterate about contraception methods). I didn’t see her again, but one day I knew she was pregnant. Silly, but I first thought it was my fault and not hers of being a slut. Luckily It was the last option, I don’t want to repeat the same story of my dad.
Third, Last year I suffered of Hematospermia (blood in the semen). This hematospermia besides causing me to ejaculate semen with scarlet red blood, It caused me to be almost sterile with a very low sperm count (espermograma was that exam), and the living ones were death or motionless. I went to the Nefrologist and Urologist and the problem seemed to persist even after taking many pills and even having practiced a prostate exam (but with a tube camera not the doctor’s fingers, as is commonly practiced). It wasn’t that bad as is usually thought, I didn’t feel raped I just was making a good use of my EPS.
So, my bloody semen didn’t want to get better, I know the effects (legal and economical) of an uplanned baby, especially to a young single man who wants to be succesful and a “player” and I don’t want my bad genes to be passed. I consulted with my urologist about the vasectomy, the EPS seems to cover it, If not, it’s very cheap. It was like a genetic suicide. I was thinking about it.
Happily my bloody semen was cured. But I’m still think sometimes about it.
