Vasectomies are a sterilization method for men who do not want children or do not wish to have more. It is a minor, 10-minute intervention done with local anesthesia at the doctor’s office.
It is a permanent male contraception method that prevents spermatozoa from entering semen. Simple and very effective, vasectomies have a success rate of more than 99.9% in preventing pregnancies.
Patients say they felt very little pain: no worse than getting bloodwork done. Some even say they felt no pain at all.
