Vasectomy is often requested by men who do not wish to have any more children in the future. A small incision is made in the scrotal skin and the vas deferens (which carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra) are cut on each side. The procedure can be performed easily, quickly and comfortably using a local anesthetic. Men should consider vasectomy a permanent method of birth control since reversal is very expensive and is not guaranteed to restore fertility.
