Vasectomy is a method of contraception that is practiced to a man and is intended to permanently control reproduction.
In a vasectomy, a health care provider closes or blocks the tubes that carry the sperm. When the ducts are closed, the sperm does not come out in ejaculation and, therefore, pregnancy does not occur.
Most men can undergo a vasectomy safely. However, as with any medical procedure, there are risks. Check with your health care provider and ask if vasectomy can be safe for you.
