Vasectomy is an operation for a man to become sterilized.
Both vas deferens, which carry sperm from the testes to the urethra, are cut, clipped and/or tied. Since sperm can no longer reach the urethra, pregnancy cannot occur.
The out patient procedure takes about 15 minutes and is done with local anesthetic. The recovery time is about 2-3 days. It is important for men to use a back up method until they have a chance to follow up with their doctor. Sperm counts need to be done to establish sterility since it does not happen immediately.
