A safe, simple and permanent solution to contraception for men

If you are sure that you don’t want more children, irrespective of what may happen in the future, then a vasectomy is a safe and simple procedure for men who want a permanent solution to contraception. You will sometimes hear vasectomies referred to as male sterilisation. It is much simpler and safer than female sterilisation and more effective.

Before you go ahead with a vasectomy, you will be given counselling to ensure that it’s the right solution for you. It is best to view a vasectomy as permanent and irreversible as, although surgery to reverse a vasectomy is available, it is expensive and only successful in about 30% of cases.
