Vasectomy is a very modest surgical procedure to prevent sperm from entering the semen ejected from the penis. Semen persists, but it is devoid of sperm. The testes continue to produce sperm after a vasectomy, but the body absorbs it.
What is the efficacy of vasectomies?
These methods are nearly 100 percent effective. Occasionally, the tubes can reunite. If this occurs, sperm could leave the body and result in conception. Sperm can still leave the body briefly after a vasectomy. Have a follow-up test to determine when to stop using another kind of contraception.
Benefits of a Vasectomy
It’s the most reliable type of birth control you can use if you don’t want kids. Additionally, it is less expensive and less likely to result in complications than having a woman’s tubes tied (also known as tubal ligation). Procedures are risk-free. You may experience slight pain, scrotal enlargement, and probably minor bleeding later. However, they occur infrequently and are typically not serious when they do. Approximately 1% to 2% of males have persistent pain.
