Vasectomy

A vasectomy is a male sterilization surgery that involves snipping the vas deferens, which is the reproductive tube that carries sperm from a male's epididymis all of the way to this man's prostate.[1] More than 500,000 men each year in the U.S. get vasectomies for birth control purposes, and one out of every 2,000 vasectomies subsequently ends up failing.[1]
