Cost is also a considerable factor with vasectomies costing a mere fraction of the cost for tubal ligation.
Vasectomies are the only permanent contraception option for men.
Surgical vasectomies are more than 99 percent effective once semen testing shows a complete absence of sperm.
Vasectomies do not provide immediate pregnancy prevention and it may take several months before sperm are no longer present in the seminal fluid.
Because vasectomies are a permanent form of contraception, only men who are certain they want no future children should undergo the procedure.
