Deciding whether or not you should have a vasectomy isn’t just about researching the positives. As with any elective procedure, it’s important to understand both the positives and the negatives so that you can make a fully informed decision with no surprises.
The topic usually arises when a couple decides that they don’t want to have children or that they don’t want to continue growing their family. If both you and your partner agree that a vasectomy would be beneficial to your current situation, then you’re off to a good start.
Figuring out if it is right for you is the next step. Although the procedure is quite straight forward and generally involves minimal complications, it’s not necessarily a solution that suits everyone. Making sure you’re certain it’s the road you want to go down is important.
When making your decision consider the following;
- Undergoing a vasectomy procedure will mean you can no longer conceive children
- Although the procedure can be reversed, vasectomy reversal can be very expensive and complicated
- If you and your partner are tired of using birth control, having a vasectomy is an excellent contraceptive solution
While exploring the possibilities of vasectomy, try not to just focus on the fact that condom use will be a thing of the past. Although it is a huge benefit in the bedroom you should also contemplate questions like, ‘what if I change my mind about having kids?’ and ‘what does the procedure actually involve?’
