A vasectomy is a surgical procedure that clips the vas deferens which is a small passageway within the scrotal sac that carries sperm filled semen. By cutting this small tube, sperm cannot be secreted in the ejaculate. By doing so the man cannot impregnate a woman, hence it is a form of birth control. Tying each end of the vas derferens is considered more effective than using a clip to close off the end but both methods are highly effective... 99-99.9%. Protected sex must be practiced until the semen is clear of sperm... usually 6 wks. Semen analyses must be done a few times in the weeks after surgery until no sperm are present. It is at that time the couple may practice unprotected sex... I hope this helps...

My husband takes 2 Targretin pills per day. He's had a vasectomy and I'm in menopause, so no worries
