Being intimate with your partner can be more satisfying when you are able to focus on each other instead of the possibility of an unwanted pregnancy. The answer you may be looking for is a vasectomy - a "get-it-and-forget-it" form of permanent birth control, with minimal discomfort and convenient recovery time. Each year, more than 500,000 men in the U.S. choose vasectomy for birth control.1
Get started on the path to improved sexual health and performance with the Vasectomy procedure.
A 30-minute procedure, done in your doctor's office or in an outpatient surgery center, a vasectomy is an effective form of birth control, which can take the stress of preventing pregnancy off your partner and make intimacy more enjoyable. In addition, studies show men who’ve had a vasectomy aren’t at a higher risk for heart disease, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, or other health problems Schedule your appointment with Urology One to discuss what you can expect if you're considering a vasectomy
A vasectomy is a minor procedure that prevents a male’s sperm from joining the semen that is present during ejaculation. For you, this means that without sperm in your semen, sperm cannot travel into the fallopian tube and fertilize an egg, resulting in pregnancy. After you have a vasectomy, semen will still eject from your penis just as it did before, however, sperm, and the high risk of impregnating your partner, will be missing.
Since sperm does not add much fluid to your semen, you will not notice a significant change in your ejaculate, and neither will your partner. Vasectomies are known for their positive, safe results, and very few people have complications. But like all medical procedures, there are some possible risks. The most common risks with a vasectomy are minor and treatable.
Vasectomies are a safe form of birth control that hundreds of thousands of men sign up to receive every year in order to bring something extra into their relationship without forcing their partner to undergo a major procedure or adding to an already completed family. In other words, your partner will likely love you more for the commitment you’ve made to her by undergoing this minor procedure.

Most of our vasectomy patients are able to return to work almost immediately after the procedure. We recommend slowly transitioning back into your work and sex life to give your body a few days to adapt to the minor change.
