Vasectomy  information



Vasectomy questions?
Vasectomy Instructions can provide you with all the information you need to make an educated decision about vasectomy. It is important that your vasectomy is performed by an experienced urologist. In some areas vasectomies are performed by family practitioners and general surgeons who don't have as much training in this surgical procedure and may not know how to take care of complications, should they arise. Our Find A Doctor service will help you locate a urologist in your area.

  1. The failure rate of birth control pill is up to 30 per 1000.
  2. The failure rate of tubal ligation is up to 4 per 1000.
  3. The failure rate of vasectomy is only 1 to 3 per 1000.
  4. The cost of birth control pill averages $30 per month. If you are paying for this out of pocket, that is significant, especially considering that vasectomy is usually covered by insurance. If it is not covered, paying out of pocket for vasectomy pays for itself in eighteen to twenty-one months.
  5. Vasectomy is a procedure that can be done in the office under local anesthesia, but tubal ligation requires the woman to be hospitalized and is done under general or spinal anesthesia, therefore it is much easier for the man to undergo vasectomy than it is for the woman to undergo tubal ligation.
  6. The cost of tubal ligation is $2000-$4000 versus the cost of a Vasectomy at $500-$1000.
