What is the ideal number children to have?

From  The Atlantic

A handful of studies have tried to pinpoint a number of children that maximizes parents’ happiness. One study from the mid-2000s indicated that a second child or a third didn’t make parents happier. “If you want to maximize your subjective well-being, you should stop at one child,” the study’s author told Psychology Today. A more recent study, from Europe, found that two was the magic number; having more children didn’t bring parents more joy.

In the United States, nearly half of adults consider two to be the ideal number of children, according to Gallup polls, with three as the next most popular option, preferred by 26 percent. Two is the favorite across Europe, too.

Ashley Larsen Gibby, a Ph.D. student in sociology and demography at Penn State, notes that these numbers come with some disclaimers. “While a lot of [the] evidence points to two children being optimal, I would be hesitant to make that claim or generalize it past Western populations,” she wrote to me in an email. “Having the ‘normative’ number of children is likely met with more support both socially and institutionally. Therefore, perhaps two is optimal in places where two is considered the norm. However, if the norm changed, I think the answer to your question would change as well.”

Anesthesia in an accredited surgery center, no pain vasectomy, essentially the same price as in an office, and 30 years of experience makes the decision to drive 45 minutes to Gainesville for a vasectomy…a no brainer.

Contact us or use the form below to make an appointment 24/7. A pre-vasectomy consultation is preferred, however to make the Atlanta to Gainesville vasectomy even easier, ask about the same day consult/vasectomy option with our vasectomy coordinator.

Common “myth” about having a vasectomy.

f1667e48-f4ce-473c-8733-92bf95c51496

Myth: There will be no ejaculation after a vasectomy.

Truth: 90% or more of the ejaculate comes from the prostate. Only a small percentage is sperm. So having a vasectomy will not result in any noticeable change in the volume of the ejaculate.

Dr. McHugh is very personable and is one of the most experienced doctors in the area so it was an easy choice. I would recommend to anyone who wants a vasectomy or reversal done.

Fantastic experience. The staff are friendly friendly and professional. Dr. McHugh walks you through the entire process step by step and his staff did a wonderful job of making sure I was informed about insurance and the procedure along the way. The operation itself was painless and quick. I can't recommend Dr. McHugh enough!

The procedure was quick and the anesthesia was perfectly executed. The best part of the procedure is that they let me pick one of my favorite bands to play over the speakers while drifting off.
