When a man gets a vasectomy, he’s not just getting the benefits of permanent birth control from himself. He’s providing his significant other with stress-free contraception so that she can enjoy herself without worry.
Many women find vasectomy appealing because it allows them to effectively and safely prevent pregnancy without the inconvenience, side effects, and possible complications associated with other birth control methods.
Women love men who have had a vasectomy for the following reasons:
1. Vasectomies work!
Vasectomy is one of the most effective forms of contraception out there. Only tubal ligation, IUDs, and implants come close to being as effective as a vasectomy. Condoms, birth control pills, and other methods have a failure rate of 10% or more.
Trying to prevent pregnancy, but not being sure it will work is stressful. Which makes being intimate less pleasurable.
2. Side effects of hormonal contraception are avoided
Many female birth control options, including the pill, contraceptive injections, and some IUDs, prevent ovulation or egg implantation by raising hormone levels. However, the adverse side effects of hormonal birth control are well-known and include depression, mood swings, weight gain, cramps, and headaches.
These side effects can seriously affect a woman’s daily life, depending on their severity. Her partner getting a vasectomy will completely prevent these adverse effects.
3. Reduces the possibility of serious health issues
Long-term use of birth control pills may increase the risk of blood clots and heart attack after age 35. Risk rises if you also have:
- A history of heart disease
Smoking makes these health conditions worse, and the risk increases with age. The estrogen in combination pills may worsen migraine headaches for females who already suffer from them.
4. A vasectomy may enhance your sex life
A vasectomy is a method of contraception that does not require special attention during sexual activity. You can enjoy yourself without the fear of pregnancy. Hormones and sexual desire are unaffected by vasectomy.
By relieving the burden of preventing pregnancy, a vasectomy can improve your relationship with your partner and make intimacy more enjoyable for both of you. You can have more satisfying and spontaneous sexual encounters with your partner when you focus on one another, rather than birth control. (Note: vasectomies do not prevent sexually transmitted infections.)
5. A vasectomy saves money
Over time, vasectomy is significantly less expensive than other birth control methods. Most providers charge a one-time fee for vasectomy procedures that is much less than tubal ligation. Birth control pills can cost hundreds of dollars each year – and are often taken for many years.
Additionally, a vasectomy may be free of charge if you’re insurance covers it.
6. Vasectomies are super convenient
You and your partner don’t need to take any further action to avoid getting pregnant once you’ve had a vasectomy and your doctor confirms that there are no sperm in your semen. There is nothing to purchase, use, or apply before engaging in sexual activity, so no trips to the pharmacy. Vasectomies are permanent birth control procedures with no upkeep or maintenance.
