Video Series: Contraception Conversations
Men are often left out of contraception counseling. As a result tubal ligations are still three times more common than vasectomies in the United States, despite vasectomies being cheaper, more effective and simpler to get. In honor of World Vasectomy Day today (Nov. 20), the Center just launched a video-interview series called Contraception Conversations to raise awareness about this procedure.
In the videos three men share their perspectives on, and experiences with, vasectomies: one man who got a vasectomy, one preparing to get one, and one considering the procedure in the future. We also talked with a urologist who shared his expert knowledge and answered commonly asked questions. We hope hearing real people discuss their experiences can help others better understand this form of contraception.
