Any man considering getting a vasectomy may have initial reservations about the genital surgery. It is not something most men want to think about going through, but at some point, many will have to undergo the procedure. There are a number of reasons to have the big snip completed, with the surgery being one of the most effective forms of birth control being at the top of the list. There are other positives to consider.
Vasectomies are not a very invasive surgery. The risks of complications are low and carry only about two to three percent chance of subsequent infections, bleeding, or pain. If a large buildup of sperm happens after, the pain threshold is greater, which occurs in about ten percent of cases. Studies have also determined there is no significant risk of an increased chance of prostate nor testicular cancer showing up following the surgery.
