Today my post is about Vasectomy. I thought I would share an article about the snip as written by Guy Adams.
According to Adams, who is 38 years old and a father of three said, that it was the duty of very husband to have a vasectomy.
It’s a very controversial topic and three dads disagree with Guy Adams why men should not have a vasectomy. Read more
Vasectomy Male Sterilisation
A woman can get pregnant if a man’s sperm reaches one of her eggs (ova). Contraception tries to stop this happening by keeping the egg and sperm apart or by stopping egg production.
One method of contraception is vasectomy (male sterilisation). During a minor operation, the tubes that carry sperm from a man’s testicles to the penis are cut, blocked or sealed.
This prevents sperm from reaching the seminal fluid (semen), which is ejaculated from the penis during sex.
There will be no sperm in the semen, so a woman’s egg can’t be fertilised. Vasectomy is usually carried out under local anaesthetic and takes about 15 minutes.
Facts about Vasectomy
In most cases, vasectomy is more than 99% effective. Out of 2,000 men who are sterilised, one will get a woman pregnant during the rest of his lifetime.
Male sterilisation is considered permanent – once it’s done, you don’t have to think about contraception again.
You need to use contraception for at least eight weeks after the operation because sperm stays in the tubes leading to the penis.
Up to two semen tests are done after the operation, to ensure that all the sperm has gone.
Your scrotum (ball sack) may become bruised, swollen or painful – some men have ongoing pain in their testicles.
As with any surgery, there’s a slight risk of infection.
Reversing the operation isn’t easy, and is rarely available on the NHS.
Vasectomy doesn’t protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). By using a condom, you’ll protect yourself and your partner against STIs.
How Vasectomy Works
A vasectomy works by stopping sperm getting into a man’s semen, the fluid that he ejaculates.
The tubes that carry sperm from a man’s testicles to the penis are cut, blocked or sealed with heat.
This means that when a man ejaculates, the semen has no sperm in it and a woman’s egg can’t be fertilised – Courtesy NHS
