Vasectomy is a very safe, simple, and convenient procedure.
The procedure itself takes under half an hour and is performed
in an office setting.
The complication rate is very low, especially when compared to alternative methods of permanent birth control (tubal ligation), and even many non-permanent birth control options such as oral birth control pills.
For example, the number of fatalities per 100,000 tubal ligations
is 3.51 while the number of fatalities per 100,000 vasectomies is 0.
Vasectomy is one of the most effective forms of permanent birth control with a failure rate of just 1 in 2000.
By comparison, the failure rate of condoms is 300 out of every 2000 uses and the failure rate of birth control pills is 160 out of 2000.
Up to 50% of pregnancies are unplanned. An unintended pregnancy will cost a family an average of $250,000 to raise that child to adulthood.
Because vasectomy is permanent, you will likely have no further annual out-of-pocket costs for family planning and birth control.
The counseling session, the procedure, the post-vasectomy semen testing are all included in the $800 fee. Most insurance plans will cover the cost of the vasectomy.
