        Permanent Method For Men:
This method is for men who are sure they never want to have a child or do not want any more children. Sometimes it is possible to reverse the operation, but there are no guarantees.
Reversal involves complicated surgery that might not work.
The success of reversal surgery depends on:
-- the length of time since the vasectomy was performed.
-- whether or not antibodies to sperm have developed.
-- the method used for vasectomy and the length and location of the segments of vas deferens that were removed or blocked.

Sterilization Surgery for Men (Vasectomy):
What is it?
-- this is a surgery a man has only once.
-- it is permanent.
How does it work?
-- a man needs to have surgery.
-- local anesthesia is used.
Some risks?
-- pain
-- bleeding
-- infection
Does it protect me from sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?
-- no.
