Male Vasectomy

The male vasectomy represents the only form of permanent contraception available to men. Around one in five males of a reproductive age in the United Kingdom has had a vasectomy. The minor surgical procedure works by sealing the internal tubes which transport sperm from the testes to the ejaculatory fluid or semen within the penis. Any ejaculate coming into contact with a sexual partner, should contain no sperm and therefore no risk of unplanned pregnancy.
