March Madness: The Perfect Time for a Vasectomy Slam Dunk
Tobacco Road connecting Durham and Chapel Hill is the epicenter of College Basketball. Here is a short list of basketball greats that wore light and dark blue: Michael Jordan, James Worthy, Christian Laettner, Grant Hill, Zion Williamson, Vince Carter, and so many more. Raleigh to our east has produced its share of stars and no can forget Jimmy Vavlono and the NC State National Championship in 1983.
March Madness and the ACC conference and NCAA championships will be upon us soon. It is true what they say, March is the best time to get a vasectomy!
At His Choice Durham, we provide a convenient, simple, and effective vasectomy experience. The recovery from our procedures usually is not painful and does not require you to be in bed for multiple days, having the excitement of basketball on the TV is a great way to distract yourself from the recovery. Think back to the crazy games of past years as the tournament takes center stage, captivating fans with buzzer-beaters, Cinderella stories, and the pursuit of the coveted championship title.
My doctor prescribed couch time!
I know that with my busy life and family obligations, I don’t always get to sit down and watch multiple games in a row on a Saturday or Sunday. But if you just got your vasectomy, you will have the perfect excuse to relax in front of the TV. You can even say that your doctor prescribed it!
The truth is that with our minimally-invasive, no scalpel, no needle technique, you don’t actually need to stay in bed or remain lying down with frozen peas on your healing balls. But if it helps get you out of some household chores and carpooling, go ahead and take the opportunity to relax in from of great basketball.
The schedule stretches out over a month!
Here is the schedule for March Madness, including the ACC tournament:
- ACC tournament, March 12-16
- Selection Sunday: Sunday, March 17
- First Four: March 19-20
- First round: March 21-22
- Second round: March 23-24
- Sweet 16: March 28-29
- Elite Eight: March 30-31
- Final Four: Saturday, April 6 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
- NCAA championship game: Monday, April 8 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
We have added extra times, some at unusual times in the early morning or evening so that you can get your vasectomy at a convenient time and then have these games to enjoy during your during your recovery.
Keep in mind that in the early parts of the tournament and in the conference tournament, games often run on Thursday and Friday. Vasectomy is typically done only on Fridays, but at His Choice Durham, we have added options earlier in the week, early in the day and even on Saturdays and Sundays so that you can have something in the afternoon to actually look forward to watching on the day you get your vasectomy.
The vasectomy procedure itself is relatively quick, but the recovery process involves some downtime. March Madness provides an excellent opportunity to kick back and relax.
You won’t be so injured or uncomfortable that you won’t be able to enjoy the games. You can even invite friends and family over, or just plan to watch by your self or with your immediate household. I received my vasectomy in October as we just had our newborn, and as an avid baseball fall, I remember taking infant duty – which pretty much meant letting our newborn sleep on my chest while I watched multiple innings of playoff baseball, trying not to disturb her when I got excited from a home run or key strike out. That can be you!
Because some of you won’t be broadcasting your vasectomy to your friends and family, March Madness can be a perfect distraction, allowing you the time and space to watch games on your own while you recover. And of course, this is fine too.
Embracing the “No Kids” Lifestyle
I take care of many men who are choosing to have a vasectomy because they are sure they never want any kids. March Madness can also be the right time for this group to get a vasectomy. March is the beginning of the spring season, and if you are sure that having no kids is right for you, we will gladly take care of you at His Choice Durham. Our only requirement is that you are 21 years of age and have thought about this decision carefully. Please be sure to spend time on our website and watch our videos. Although vasectomy reversal is an option following most vasectomies, you should not be requesting a vasectomy if you are considering reversal. Vasectomy reversals are not guaranteed to work, they have other risks, and they are almost never covered by insurance, requiring patients to pay $5-10 thousand dollars. But if you have thought carefully about your decision and want a vasectomy, make your appointment at His Choice Durham. We do not have any consultation requirement. We don’t make you jump through any additional hurtles. All that we ask is that you spend some time on our website looking over our videos and other information to ensure this is the right procedure for you. Then, make your appointment. A consultation is an option, but is rarely necessary.
Come see us for March Madness
Our vasectomies have minimal downtime, and for those of you who have a desk job, you can likely return to work within 48 hours. So unless you are an accountant in the busy tax season, March is probably the perfect time for you to have your vasectomy. For those of you who do more physical work, you will want to have 4-7 days of recovery before you return to a job where you have to lift more than 20 lbs and are on your feet most of the day. Keep in mind, everyone’s recovery is different, and these are only guidelines.
The bottom line: If you’ve been considering a vasectomy, March is likely the best time to get the procedure as you can combine recovery with some of the most entertaining and non-stop sports that one can find. That sounds like a slam-dunk decision! If professional football is more your speed, make sure to sign up for our remaining appointments in January and February. We often have Saturday and Sunday morning appointments, including on the weekend of the Super Bowl, which is February 11, 2024. So here is your sports challenge: sign up for a vasectomy now on our scheduling page.
Come see us, get your vasectomy taken care of, and enjoy the best of spring sports during your recovery.
