Things You Should Know About Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a surgical procedure meant to make a man sterile. The time taken for the surgery varies from 20 minutes to 45 minutes. In this procedure, small incisions will be made on the scrotum through which sperm tubes will be cut and the ends of the tube will be closed up. This prevents the sperms from coming out along with the semen and thereby preventing your partner from getting pregnant. It is considered as one of the most effective means of contraception. Vasectomy has a high rate of success of about 99%. However, the procedure is not 100% effective until the sperm is completely out of the semen. After the surgery, you will have to take precautions against making your partner pregnant until your test results are clear of semen. The test to monitor the presence of sperm is usually performed after 10-20 post vasectomy ejaculations. […]

How Effective is a Vasectomy in Preventing Pregnancy?

The success rate of vasectomy is more than 99%  when we speak about preventing pregnancy. However, a man will not be sterile instantly after the vasectomy surgery. If pregnancy occurs after vasectomy, it is generally because of having intercourse within the first few weeks after the surgery. This is because the man still has sperm in his semen. If you had a vasectomy, you will have to produce a minimum of 20 ejaculations to make sure sperm is no longer present in the semen. The vasectomy will be effective in preventing pregnancy only after the sperm count reaches zero. You will have to use any form of birth control option with your partner before a vasectomy becomes effective in order to make sure your partner does not get pregnant. After several weeks post the surgery, you can have your semen tested and it is safe to have intercourse without contraception after the results show there is no sperm in the semen. […]
