Why Dr. Phil Got a Vasectomy (and Why He Had It Reversed)

Aired on 09/20/2000 | CC tv-pg
Dr. Phil visited The Oprah Winfrey Show many times to offer his trademark no-nonsense relationship advice. Occasionally, the good doctor has drawn instructive anecdotes from his personal life to illustrate his points.

Such was the case on one particular episode where Dr. Phil, in an effort to help a couple whose sex life was suffering after having a child, told Oprah and her guests why he had had a vasectomy—and why he eventually had had it reversed. Was this story illuminating, or was it perhaps a little more insight into Dr. Phil's romantic affairs than Oprah and the audience bargained for? You be the judge!
