A vasectomy is a procedure for male birth control. It entails cutting and sealing the tubes that carry the sperm from the testicles to the semen. That means that ejaculations will no longer carry sperm, preventing conception during sexual intercourse.
The procedure presents a very low risk of complications. In general, doctors can carry it out under local anesthesia with no hospital stay required. While it is an effective means of birth control, a vasectomy does not protect against sexually transmitted infections.
