What Is Vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a form of birth control for men that is meant to be permanent.
During vasectomy, a health care provider cuts (remove a piece of) the tubes that carry sperm.
When the tubes are cut, sperm cannot leave a man's body and cause pregnancy.
How Does Vasectomy Work?
A Vasectomy cuts each vas deferens and keeps sperm out of the seminal fluid.
The sperm are absorbed by the body instead of being ejaculated. Without sperm, your "cum" (ejaculate) cannot cause pregnancy.
How Effective Is Vasectomy?
Vasectomy is the most effective birth control for men. It is nearly 100 percent effective.
**Please note: A Vasectomy is not immediately effective. Sperm remains beyond the cut tubes. You must use other birth control until the sperm are used up. It usually takes about three months. A simple test — semen analysis — shows when there are no more sperm in your ejaculate.
