Granted, there are a lot of ‘world days’ held each year that aim to raise awareness of particular issues or problems. Unlike those that just aim to boost the profile of a cause however, World Vasectomy Day on November 13 takes it one step further.
Not only are free information and education sessions on the procedure and its effectiveness offered as part of this annual event, doctors across the world also actually perform vasectomies.

At that first event, the organisers achieved their aim of getting more than 100 doctors in 25 countries to perform over 1,000 vasectomies in 24 hours.

A male vasectomy is considered to be a very simple and effective form of birth control for men, with partner pregnancy rates following a successful procedure being generally less than 0.2%. This is usually a day procedure that involves severing or clamping of the vas deferens – the tubes than carry the sperm from the testicles to the penis.

However, other forms of birth control are recommended until all already-present sperm has been completely cleared from the vas deferens following the procedure.Read More »Can a Vasectomy be reversed?
