What is World Vasectomy Day?
Bee stings hurt worse. Let’s get that out of the way. So does stubbing your toe. To get men engaged in family planning, World Vasectomy Day encourages guys to start the conversation about surgical sterility.
Guys get the snip for a lot of reasons. If getting pregnant would put your spouse in medical danger, a vasectomy might be in order. Some couples choose the procedure to avoid passing along genetic disorders, while others tie the tubes after they’re done having kids.
So, what sort of man are you? Maybe you’re the guy whose procedure conveniently coincides with March Madness. Maybe you’re the guy who would take a long lunch one day and then return to work, well, a different man.
However you might do it, World Vasectomy Day is a chance to join the ranks of men who don’t shy away from the subject of male birth control.
