Male_5.jpgA vasectomy is a permanent form of male birth control. During the procedure, the supply of sperm to semen is prevented by cutting and sealing the tubes (vas deferens) that transport sperm. The surgery typically takes about 20 to 30 minutes, and is performed using a local anesthetic.

A vasectomy is a great birth control solution for men who are certain they do not want to father any children. It is nearly 100% effective at preventing pregnancy, and is less expensive than tubal ligation.

Serious complications are rare. Possible side effects following surgery include swelling, pain and bruising, which should get better within a few days.
