Vasectomy: Patient Information
Every year, about half a million men in the USA have a vasectomy as a means of permanent birth control. It is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that is the most effective means of contraception, second only to abstinence. During a vasectomy, each vas deferens (the tube that transports sperm) is cut and sealed, preventing the sperm from being present in the semen. It is a simple, safe, and time-honored means of achieving permanent male fertility control.
