What do I need to know if I am considering a vasectomy?

First and foremost, you should know a vasectomy will not affect your sex drive. It does not interfere with a male’s levels of testosterone or sexual performance. If you are considering a vasectomy, make sure that you understand that a vasectomy is considered a permanent method of birth control . In the instance that you change your mind, it can be reversed. The reversal leads to an overall pregnancy rate greater than 50%. It has the greatest chance of success within 3 years of the vasectomy. The occlusion of sperm does not take place immediately. It is recommended to use back up for at least 12 weeks. Lastly, a vasectomy is safe and effective in over 99% of the time. More questions?
