Vasectomy
by: Wray

Progesterone is made in the testes, as these are not removed in a vasectomy, you should have no worries. But a vasectomy is the equivalent to tying the tubes in a woman. Both prevent the sperm or an egg travelling to where they should. For more info on vasectomy please see here. And here. Please consider your partner having a copper T IUD instead, but not one of the IUD's which have a progestin impregnated in them. As this leaks into the body, not a good thing. A new paper has just been published on male contraception. Interestingly testosterone suppresses spermatogenesis and has been tried in male contraceptives, please see here. Update on Male Hormonal Contraception: Is the Vasectomy in Jeopardy? Take care, Wray
