What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a minor surgery and form of male birth control that is used to cut the supply of sperm to the semen.

Typically carried out under local anaesthetic, the procedure is quick, minimally invasive and more than 99% effective.

Once done, having a male vasectomy means you will not need to worry about using other forms of contraception again.

By cutting or sealing the vas deferens – the long muscular tube that carries sperm from the testicles to the urethra – a vasectomy prevents sperm from mixing with semen during the ejaculation process, making you sterile.

Do you need a vasectomy?

Having a vasectomy is a very personal choice and is something you need to feel 100% certain about going ahead with.

While they can be reversed later on, this is not usually available on the NHS, so the surgery is considered permanent.

Therefore, if you have a partner, it is important to sit down with them and discuss how certain you are that you do not want any more children, or any children at all.

You should also discuss whether a vasectomy is the most effective form of contraception for you, as there could be alternative options available.

Before deciding to go ahead with your vasectomy, you should talk to a healthcare professional about your personal situation. They will then be able to answer any questions you have and determine your suitability for the procedure.
