Vasectomies Are Easy, Affordable Option For Birth Control

The pill. The patch. The sponge. The ring. The tube-tying.

Most contraceptive choices revolve around women. This approach to pregnancy prevention is reflected in a recent Harris poll, in which nearly three out of four women said men cannot be counted on to choose a birth control method. Men agreed in almost equal numbers.

But while male birth control drugs are still a prescription for the future, men do have a surgical option to prevent pregnancy. Proponents laud vasectomies as affordable, painless and 99.9 percent effective.
