Who can have a vasectomy?
Single, married, divorced, widowed, childless or with a family – any man can have a vasectomy, regardless of his circumstances.
Vasectomy is a safe and effective, permanent method of contraception. It should only be considered if you are sure that you never want children at any time in the future, even if your circumstances change. If you are aged under 30 and have not yet had children, there is a higher chance that in future, you will regret having a vasectomy. Vasectomy reversal is not routinely available on the NHS.
You shouldn’t consider having a vasectomy if you are under stress, whether or not that stress relates to concerns about pregnancy or your relationship or anything else. If you are in a relationship, we strongly advise you to talk it through with your partner, even though their agreement is not required if you do choose to have a vasectomy.
Contact BPAS to discuss a vasectomy, you do not need a doctor’s referral.
