VASECTOMY

Vasectomyis a form of male birth control that cuts the supply of sperm to your semen. It's done by cutting and sealing the tubes that carry sperm. Vasectomy has a low risk of problems and can usually be performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia.

Before getting a vasectomy you need to be certain you don't want to father a child in the future. Although vasectomy reversals are possible, vasectomy should be considered a permanent form of male birth control.

Vasectomy offers no protection from sexually transmitted infections.

Vasectomy is a safe and effective birth control choice for men who are certain they don't want to father a child in the future.

·      Vasectomy is nearly 100 percent effective in preventing pregnancy.

·      Vasectomy is an outpatient surgery with a low risk of complications or side effects.

·      The cost of a vasectomy is far less than the cost of female sterilization (tubal ligation) or the long-term cost of birth control medications for women.

·      You won't need to take birth control steps before sex, such as putting on a condom.
