MANday Topic- No Needle or Scalpel Vasectomy for Men- The Best Birth Control for Women!
Women are amazing! Its that simple! And when it comes to family planning, they make the ultimate sacrifice. For nine months, they endure changes that men will never relate to or understand. Do not even let me get started with labor and delivery! I know men who moan and complain about constipation and hemorrhoids. But when couples are finally done having kids, women are still the ones making the ultimate sacrifice with birth control. According to the Mayo Clinic (2020), here are some examples of birth control for women and the risks that they take:
- Combination birth control pills
- 9 out of 100 women will still get pregnant in the first year
- Side effects: blood clots, heart attack, and stroke
- Increased risk for developing breast and cervical cancer
- Intrauterine Device (IUD)
- If you conceive while IUD is inserted, you are at high risk for an ectopic pregnancy (egg implants outside of the uterus)
- Side effects: headache, acne, breast tenderness, cramping or pelvic pain
- Depo-Provera (Contraceptive Injection)
- Delayed return to fertility- after stopping injection, it may take 10 months or more before you start to ovulate
- May cause loss of bone mineral density and unsure as to whether this side effect is reversible
- Tubal Ligation
- Reversal success is not guaranteed
- Done under general anesthesia in the hospital setting
- Abdominal Hysterectomy
- Cannot be reversed
- Risks: blood clots, infection, excessive bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia
- Earlier onset of menopause if ovaries are removed
A vasectomy is the ultimate display of chivalry and here are the reasons why it is the best option for birth control:
- Least invasive approach- No needle or scalpel used
- 98-99% effective
- Pain level after vasectomy is 1-2 out of 10
- Takes 5-15 minutes
- Done in the clinic and men drive themselves home
- Over 90% success rate in reversing vasectomy
- Less than 1% chance of experiencing complications or issues
- Full activity and intercourse resumed around 5-7 days
