A permanent contraceptive method for men.
A vasectomy involves closing the tubes that carry sperm from the man’s testicles.
Vasectomy is an excellent way to prevent a pregnancy, and is a good solution for men who are certain they don't want any more children.
The procedure takes about 15 minutes, and is one of the most effective methods of contraception that exists - the failure rate is approximately 1 man in 2000.
However, a vasectomy is not effective immediately. Another contraceptive must be used for the first 3 months after a vasectomy while remaining sperm are cleared beyond the area where the man's tubes were blocked.
