Having the vasectomy operation in our waking life is a procedure that renders males incapable of having children. This is a common surgery that is one of the most popular forms of male birth control, but not a common dream to have.

If a vasectomy appears in your dream life, this symbol implies that you might be cutting off opportunities in your life by not taking the time to think about things through or that you are nervous because of an important change that needs to be made in just the right way.

This dream could be tied directly to an instance of moving, getting married, having a baby, getting a tattoo, quitting a job, or even an actual vasectomy or hysterectomy.

Dreaming of a Vasectomy Gone Wrong

A vasectomy is a symbol of permanent change and the decisions that need to be made along the way to make sure you are making the right choices. When this surgery goes wrong, it acts as a sign that something in your life isn’t being fully thought out or is being rushed too quickly.

This stress dream has similarities to dreams about teeth, where our anxieties about the real-life world manifest itself into something physical in our dreams. It isn’t painful, but the vision of it can be quite traumatic.

In order to regain control of the situation, you have to sit down and think through the process. Tell someone that you need a bit more time to think or take a day away from everything to clear your head. Remember, a vasectomy dream is not a common dream, when we see this, it’s important to stop and take notice.

Dreaming of Vasectomy & A Person You Know

If another person is watching or performing the surgery in this dream, the symbol could be suggesting that this person does not allow you to show the world who you really are, and are restricting your freedom or restricting you in this relationship.

If the person in your dream is a sexual or romantic partner, you also may be simply dissatisfied with the state of your sex life when this dream symbol appears.

No matter your gender (represented in this dream or in real life), this may be a sign that you need to take some time to re-evaluate if your needs are being met in the waking world.
