sdvc_effectivenessThe vasectomy is an extremely safe and effective procedure, with vasectomy success rates over 99%.

During the vasectomy procedure, the vas deferentia are sealed preventing sperm from mixing with the semen that is released during ejaculation. A vasectomy is considered a success when there is zero sperm in the ejaculate.

Immediately after a vasectomy the male will not be sterile. Within the next several months the male’s semen will be tested to ensure that the vasectomy was effective, by looking for traces of sperm . It usually takes several months before a couple can have sex without any form of birth control.

Couples should use another form of birth control until the semen has been tested and zero sperm count is confirmed.
