What Is a Vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a method of permanent birth control for men. During a vasectomy, the vas deferens, which are tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the ejaculate (semen), are clipped and cut, thereby blocking sperm from entering the semen. Sperm are still produced in the testicles, but they die and become reabsorbed by the body. After a vasectomy, a man will still ejaculate normally but there will be no sperm present in the semen. There will be no difference in the appearance or volume of your semen. Everything else related to sexual function, such as erectile function and testosterone levels, remain unchanged. Patients must wait a few months following a vasectomy before having unprotected sex to be sure that all remaining sperm have been ejaculated.
