Vasectomy News and Research

RSS
A vasectomy is a surgical procedure that makes a man sterile, or unable to get a woman pregnant. It is generally considered to be at least as effective as female sterilization and is simpler to perform, safer, and less costly. A vasectomy is done by blocking the tube, called the vas deferens, through which sperm normally pass from each testicle on the way to the seminal vesicle, forming semen.
