Pelvis | Urology | Vasectomy (Disease)
Vasectomy is a form of male birth control that cuts the supply of sperm to the semen. Its done by cutting and sealing the tubes that carry sperm. Vasectomy is straightforward and has a low risk of problems. Before getting a vasectomy, however, a person needs to be certain that he doesnt want the father of a child in the future. Vasectomy is considered a permanent form of male birth control.
Vasectomy may be recommended for men who are sure they do not want to get a woman pregnant in the future. A vasectomy makes a man sterile (unable to get a woman pregnant). A vasectomy is not recommended as a short-term form of birth control. The procedure to reverse a vasectomy is a much more complicated operation.
