Why is a vasectomy performed? 

Your doctor may recommend a vasectomy for permanent birth control. A vasectomy is an option if:

  • You are finished having children.

  • You do not want to have children.

  • You and your partner have a genetic incompatibility preventing you from having healthy children.
