Planned Parenthood Wants to Hear Your Story

Planned Parenthood North Central States and University of Minnesota—Twin Cities are teaming up to learn more about experiences with vasectomy and thoughts on different birth control options. 

Vasectomy Experiences and Attitudes Toward New Methods of Birth Control

You are being asked if you would like to participate in research because you have received a vasectomy. Staff at Planned Parenthood North Central States (PPNCS) and the University of Minnesota—Twin Cities are conducting a study to learn more about people’s experiences with vasectomy and thoughts on different birth control options.

Researchers across the globe have been developing new birth control options, including hormonal and non-hormonal methods targeted at sperm, and it is expected that these products will hit the market over the next 10 years. We want to learn from people who have used vasectomy as a form of birth control about their decision-making process and the qualities they appreciate in birth control.

We are asking folks who have had a vasectomy to share their thoughts and experiences through a 10-15 minute online survey.

Are you interested in sharing your experience with vasectomy and thoughts about contraception that targets sperm?

You can participate if:

  • You have had a vasectomy
  • Are aged 18 or older
  • Are able to read, write, and speak English
  • Are able and willing to complete an online survey

Participants will be eligible for a lottery drawing of fifty $20 Amazon gift cards with an estimated 1 in 5 chance of winning.
