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. […]

Vasectomy is one of the most safest permanent birth control options for men. Most medical experts, including special panels convened by the National Institutes of Health and by the World Health Organization, have concluded that vasectomy is a safe and simple procedure. Vasectomy prevents men from releasing sperm during ejaculation. The vasectomy procedure is done where the vas deferens from each testicle is clamped, sealed or cut. As a result, the sperm will be prevented from mixing with semen during ejaculation. As the tubes will be blocked before seminal vesicles and prostate, there will not be any difference in the amount of fluid you ejaculate. The procedure usually takes just 20 to 30 minutes which can be performed in a clinic without having to stay over in a hospital. After a few minutes of rest, you can return home the same day itself.  The scrotum will be numb for about 1 to 2 hours after the surgery but with rest for a day or two, patients are usually back to work after 2 days provided the work is not too physical or strenuous.
