Vasectomy Experiences and Attitudes Towards New Methods of Birth Control

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. 

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

Participants were eligible if they: 

  • 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. 

Enrollment in the study is now complete and data analysis is underway. This page will be updated with the findings once they become available.
