A vasectomy is a safe and effective permanent birth control method for men. It's a simple procedure performed in a quick outpatient setting. Local numbing medicine is given in the area. There is very little bleeding and no stitches are required. This procedure has been used for many years and has very few side effects. Learn more about what to expect during a vasectomy on our blog.
A vasectomy is extremely effective. Less than 1 percent of men who have the procedure will cause a pregnancy each year. Because some sperm remain beyond the blocked part of the tubes, the procedure is not effective right away. You must use another form of birth control (like a condom) until the sperm are gone. This can take up to three months. Read more on our blog.
