How Effective Is Vasectomy

In Des Moines vasectomy is a very popular strategy for birth control. It is indeed one of the most effective contraception methods known to us. Vasectomy is scientific and thus there is rational explanation as to why it can help in birth control and since the procedure has a permanent effect, once you have a Des Moines vasectomy surgery, there is absolutely no possibility that you can ever get your partner pregnant throughout your life.

If you are wondering about the effectiveness of vasectomy then there is a simple answer, it is very effective and it is one of the most effective forms of birth control. In comparison with other birth control avenues such as condoms and oral contraceptive pills, vasectomy scores much better. To instill a statistical perspective, less than 15 couples among every 10,000 who opt for a Des Moines vasectomy surgery would experience pregnancy. This is much less than the 500 couples who experience pregnancy among 10,000 couples despite using contraceptives and a staggering 1,400 couples among 10,000 couples using condoms conceiving.

An interesting element in this statistic is that the less than 15 cases out of 10,000 where there is a likelihood of conception after vasectomy, it is only a possibility in the first year after the surgery. Thereon, there is absolutely no chance of conception.

This is because vasectomy does not offer immediate contraception. The procedure is effective but even after the procedure, the semen and sperm that had already been produced and passed through to the seminal vesicles would have to be ejaculated or absorbed by the body. This is where the difference sets in. Some men discharge all the existing sperm in about ten ejaculations while some men take as many as thirty ejaculations. It truly depends on an individual. For some, it may take four months to allow complete ejaculation of all the sperm or absorption of the sperm into the body.

After you have a Des Moines vasectomy surgery, you would be asked to go for a sperm count diagnosis once and if this test shows that you have a zero sperm count then you cannot aid conception. However, if your sperm count is not down to zero then you have to use other birth control resources or avoid having unprotected sex till the time the sperm count drops to zero. Not doing any of these two does leave some chances of conception in the first few months of the procedure.
