Abstract:

This four-page fact sheet uses a question and answer format to educate people about the vasectomy procedure. It explains that a vasectomy is a safe and effective form of permanent birth control for men, and provides details about the procedure. It discusses the difference between “no scalpel” and classic vasectomy, method efficacy, risks, limitations, advantages, and after care. The document answers frequently asked questions about the procedure, including whether or not there is any effect on sex drive or noticeable changes to semen, what happens to the sperm after a vasectomy, recovery, semen analysis, and communicating with a female physician.
