- You don’t want to father a child under any circumstances.
- You want to enjoy sex without worrying about pregnancy.
- You want to save your partner from the surgery involved in having her tubes closed, which carries a higher risk and failure rate.
If this is true in your case, then a vasectomy may be right for you.
Talk to your partner- it’s a good idea to make this decision together. Consider other kinds of birth control.
Talk to a friend or relative who has had a vasectomy.
Think about how you would feel if your partner had an unplanned pregnancy. Talk to a doctor, nurse or family planning counselor.
