The Midhusbands of Mac: They’re doulas for dudes

Vasectomies Can Make Men Feel Cut Off

When it comes to sexual health, men reflexively shrink back from female health professionals. According to a study in Psychosomatic Medicine, getting a vasectomy or genital examination can bring on acute anxiety among men.  Challenged by an embarrassing vasectomy experience, Dr. Cory Wang started the midhusband program at McMaster University.

The three-year, B.Sc. focuses on advocating for men’s issues, not just their sexual health.   Dr. Wang is firm that every male patient needs a man handler – “It can make all the difference for quality care according to our panel groups.”

Why I Choose A “Man Handler”

“If it wasn’t for my midhusband, I might never have had the courage to have a home-vasectomy.  It was so much more comfortable that my experience with getting an adult  circumcision when I converted to Judaism,” says Glover Johnson.  “I had a gorgeous young female nurse when I was circumcised, but it was just a reflex!”  It’s awkward situations like this that Dr. Wang believes a midhusband could avoid, with their first-hand knowledge of the male body.   Man handlers can also provide care long after the operation has occurred.

Post-Vasectomy Care (PVC)

“The pride and joy of the program is our post-vasectomy care,” beams Dr. Wang.  “Post-Vasectomy Depression (PVD) is overlooked by most healthcare professionals, and PVC can lead to a significant decrease in PVD.”  The program hopes to team up with Hamilton General Hospital, and relocate to a building close by on Trendy Barton St E.  “It’s been a long, hard struggle, but we’re finally standing firm, proud to be men.”

  1. Good job out of McMaster for recognizing that men require PVC. I can see Dr. Wang eventually teaming up with the Neurology Department for further studies on the direct correlation between men’s genitals and their brains….interesting…..

  6. Without the steady rough hand of a knowledgeable midhusband, my vasectomy would have been a nightmare. Instead, it’s an experience I’ll always cherish. Thanks for the awareness.
