Excerpt
Introduction Since most couples have all the children that they want long before the end of their fertility (men are fertile throughout life, women until about age 50), they will need effective protection against unwanted pregnancy for many years. Sterilization is one of the options available to couples who have decided to end childbearing. Vasectomy is a simple operation that makes it impossible for a man to make his partner pregnant. During a vasectomy, a man's two tubes or sperm ducts are cut and blocked so that no sperm will be in his semen. Ideally, a couple wishing to end childbearing should consider either vasectomy or female sterilization, which are both highly effective methods of permanent contraception. Today, however, four times as many female sterilizations are performed as vasectomies in the world as a whole. Surgical sterilization of women is the most widely used contraceptive in the world. Female sterilization accounts for most of the 202 million couples currently benefitting from sterilization (an estimated 39 million couples have undergone vasectomy). Although the number of vasectomies is significant in only a few countries so far, this trend is changing.
