Many couples whose family planning is complete or who do not wish to have children look for alternatives to conventional contraception methods.

Today we know that long-term intake of birth control pills and their effect on the hormonal system of women can have far-reaching consequences. Vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure for male sterilization, in which the spermatic ducts are cut. This outpatient operation usually takes about 45 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia.

Three months after the surgery, a sperm analysis is conducted to document the success of the operation. From this point on, sexual activity can resume unprotected. A vasectomy is generally reversible, meaning that by reattaching the spermatic ducts at a later point in time fertility can be restored.
