Vasectomy is a safe and effective surgical procedure that provides a permanent form of contraception for men. It involves the cutting or sealing of the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. By blocking the pathway for sperm, vasectomy prevents pregnancy without affecting sexual function or hormone production.
