2. Vasectomies only protect against pregnancy.
Vasectomies are one of the most effective ways to protect against pregnancy, especially when you compare it to other forms of birth control; for example, even the use of condoms to prevent pregnancy aren’t completely effective, and condoms can still malfunction and fail in as much as 1% of total cases. This is why condoms are usually used in conjunction with other forms of birth control to ensure their effectiveness.
You should remember that vasectomies are only effective in protecting against pregnancy, and although they might be one of the most effective ways to do this, they aren’t effective at all when it comes to preventing sexually transmitted diseases – and for this, the use of condoms combined with a vasectomy is preferable.
Also remember that it’s important to have your sperm function tested both before and after the procedure, especially after, and that’s only to make sure that it worked.
