Vasectomy

How It Works

A male vasectomy is a surgery that blocks sperm from mixing with semen and leaving the body during sex. A man’s body creates sperm in the testicles. 

What Happens

Those sperm travel out of the man’s body in semen and into the fallopian tube (where the woman’s egg is located) during sex. This is how fertilization happens. This can’t happen after a vasectomy.
