Getting a vasectomy is probably the safest and most effective birth control option for men who are sure they don’t want any more children. It's almost 100% effective, has a low risk of complications and side effects, and is substantially cheaper than female sterilization.
If you have a monogamous partner, you will no longer have to put on a condom before sex, which is very appealing to many men.
Dr. Rotman uses the no-scalpel technique, which causes less bleeding and fewer complications. It is as effective as a traditional vasectomy.
However, after the procedure, you can still get a woman pregnant until your sperm count reaches zero. You should continue using birth control until you have a follow-up sperm test that confirms you no longer have any sperm in your semen.
The most common risk associated with having a vasectomy is that you may decide you want a child later on. Other side effects and complications are rare, but they may include:
Some rare, delayed side effects can also include:
For most men, the procedure goes smoothly, and they experience no side effects afterward.
