A vasectomy is a permanent form of contraception, so it is not a decision that should be made on a whim. It should be decided between you and your partner after much careful consideration.
A vasectomy may be the right choice for you if:
- You and your partner no longer desire to have children.
- You and/or your partner have genetic disorders that you do not wish to pass on to your offspring.
- Carrying children is dangerous for your partner’s health.
If you and your partner are still unsure about whether you should have children or not, or if you find yourselves often changing your mind, then a vasectomy may not be the best choice for you. If this is the case, other forms of temporary birth control exist in the meantime to help you until you are certain of your decision.
