Vasectomy remains the most effective, quickest form of permanent birth control available. A vasectomy is a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that provides permanent birth control for men (male sterilization). Sperm is prevented from combining with semen by sealing the tubes that normally carry the sperm. The procedure takes only 10-15 minutes and can be done right at the Advanced Urology offices.
