Contraception is also a man’s business
Vasectomy, also called male sterilization, is another contraceptive method besides the condom and the birth control pill. In this procedure, the two vas deferens are cut in the scrotum and the ends are tied off, sclerosed by heat or closed by a titanium clip.
Does a vasectomy scare men?
Last but not least, the impermeable spermatic cords are moved to different tissue layers of the testis to prevent them from coalescing. Over the next few days, only two small plasters will serve as a reminder of the sterilization performed. This process makes it impossible for sperm to enter the seminal fluid.
The vasectomy does not have a great influence on the erection, the sensation of pleasure or the orgasm or ejaculation. Since sperm make up only about five percent of semen, the amount of ejaculate is no different from a non-sterilized man.
What a blessing for women whose husbands undergo sterilization, because this way contraception is in the hands of the partner. To avoid pregnancy, the loved one does not need to take additional hormones. With a one-time investment of 450 to 500 euros, the issue of contraception is no longer an issue after the medical procedure. Only a few weeks you have to be patient and additionally use contraception. Only when the urologist no longer sees sperm under the miscroscope can the fun begin without the pill, condom or other means of contraception.
More than 75 percent of men support sterilization
A survey found that couples have an increasingly affirmative opinion of male sterilization. After family planning has been completed, the question now arises: How will contraception be used in the future? Living without sex is not an option. The pill or the condom would be an option, but in the long run it’s not the real thing.
If you forget to take the pill or have to deal with a gastrointestinal virus, you are no longer safe. Even with meticulous application, the failure rate is 0.3 to 1 percent. If the man uses the condom in an exemplary manner, the Pearl Index is 2. If he uses it without caution, the index rises to 12.
Hormone-free contraception thanks to male sterilization
Through a small outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia, vasectomy is performed. Couples with completed family planning are permanently relieved of the fear of an unplanned baby. Male sterilization is the most reliable method of contraception for men. There, the rate of non-efficacy with typical use is only 0.15 percent.
The survey asked 2000 men about male sterilization. The result is astonishing, because more than 75 percent of those surveyed could well imagine having a vasectomy performed on them (47.3 percent). 8.8 percent are already sterilized.
For the remaining 15 percent, the intervention is not an option at all. If necessary, they use a condom or leave contraception to women. Even nowadays, some love-struck male creatures do not feel responsible for the matter of contraception. They do it wildly and without contraception, no matter with whom. Their irresponsible actions will be “rewarded” sooner or later. Either with an unwanted child or an STD such as syphilis, gonorrhea, genital herpes or genital warts.
