you can get a refferal from any polyclinic near your hse to go Tan tock seng hospital or SGH. Its cheaper this way. the ops fee after subsidise is less than $400

Hi Lezzi, thanks for your reply. But will this method takes a long time? I know we have to wait a long time at Polyclinic to see a doctor, den have to get the referral from the doctor to TTSH or SGH, do you know how long would that referral take, meaning for eg we go see polyclinic doc on 1/3/10, when will the appt of TTSH or SGH be, roughly??

I know this is the least cost, but wonder how long would the lead time be??

i'm not too sure about it... i know waiting time at polyclinic is a killer, if u dont mind u can actually approach the hospital u want to make appt as pte patient though...

Have you and your hubby give it a second thought? How many kids do u already have?

ya, but as a pte patient, i'm sure the $$ is very high... we already have 3 kids (2boys and 1 girl). we think it's more than enough..

SGH

You can go to the GP to ask for a referral letter and get the op done at SGH Urology.

Thanks, Janet_Lee88. Ya, i think it may work.. at least GP don't have to wait too long..but if GP refer, it will still consider as public not pte patients, right?? :?

i think getting referral from GP will still be charged pte rates. The waiting time is not that long cos last week we went polyclinic to get refferal, at first they told us our appt will be somewhere in apr but they called last minute to say they have avail appt the next day so we went... so now instead of consultation in apr, my hubby will be going for his ops in apr :wink:

I myself have got 2 kids and hubby thinks he is stress enough (cos i'm SAHM) and he decides for himself that he wants to go for this... i wonder if he will regret later???

Hi KoalaMummy, I am sure your hubby has given much thought about vasectomy before considering going for it. I think it is very noble of him to do so. Most local men would not even give a thought to it. It is always the women who have to contend with contraception issues. Male sterilization is much safer than female ligation.
