Vasectomy is a form of male birth control that cuts the supply of sperm to the patient’s semen.
Historically, patients have a low risk of problems associated with the procedure. And also, a vasectomy can usually be performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia.
Important for all potential vasectomy patients to consider before the procedure is the permanent nature of a vasectomy. The patient needs to be certain he doesn’t want to father a child in the future.
Even though vasectomy reversals are possible, the procedure should be considered a permanent form of birth control.
