  • What is a vasectomy?

    A vasectomy is considered one of the most effective methods of birth control, and the operation is given to around 10,000 Australian men each year.

    A vasectomy is a small operation</a> that prevents the release of sperm during male ejaculation. The procedure involves clamping, severing or sealing the vas deferens from each testicle. This prevents sperm, the male reproductive cells, from mixing with the semen that is ejaculated from the penis. This means that, even if your ejaculate comes into contact with an egg, it cannot be fertilised. This procedure does not prevent sperm from being produced; sperm will still be produced by the body, but it will simply be reabsorbed. This is a normal occurrence and happens to sperm that remains dormant and is not ejaculated, even in men without a vasectomy. Due to the fact that the vas deferens tubes are blocked before the seminal vesicles, you will still produce the same amount of fluid when you ejaculate.
