Do you wish your partner could play a role in helping prevent pregnancy? Once you’re done having children, vasectomy is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy, without changing the enjoyment of sex in your relationship.
Sperm are made in the testicles. The sperm from each testicle normally travel through a tube, called the vas deferens, and mix with seminal fluid. During ejaculation (“coming”), the semen goes through the penis and outside the body. A vasectomy involves cutting the vas deferens on each side so that sperm can no longer get into the semen. Ejaculation will still occur during sex, there just won’t be any sperm in it.
A vasectomy is a simple procedure done in your doctor’s office. The operation takes approximately 30 minutes.
