What Is a Vasectomy?

A simple and reliable method of contraception, a Vasectomy stops the transfer of sperm during ejaculation. The operation works by stopping the sperm made in the testicles from reaching the semen. Your body can still produce sperm, but the testicles reabsorb it naturally. In some cases it’s reversible, but it’s best to think of it as permanent.
