Jesse Mills, MD, Award-Winning Men's Health Book Author, Explains Effective Birth Control Method for Men and Women

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, August 18, 2022 / -- Jesse Mills, MD, Men’s Health Specialist, discusses performing vasectomies, the most effective birth control method for men and women, and the misconceptions following the procedure.

A vasectomy is a form of male birth control in which the sperm supply is cut from the semen. “What it is, is a 10–15-minute outpatient office-based procedure which represents the most effective permanent birth control for both men and women,” explains Dr. Mills.

According to research, only 9% of sexually active men in the United States get vasectomies. This revelation is partly due to misinformation and myths about a man's performance after a vasectomy. The biggest misconceptions are that it is painful and will lower libido.

“As more men realize they can take part in the baby-making decision, more couples will likely lean into a vasectomy. It won't decrease a man's ejaculation or sensation of orgasm. It won't decrease his testosterone or kill his libido.” says Dr. Mills.

Vasectomies have been around since ancient Egypt but really gained US popularity in the 60s and remain the most effective form of birth control today. In addition to the procedure's effectiveness, it does not have to be permanent. "Indeed, for all the vasectomies I perform, my surgical training and experience allow me to reverse vasectomies and restore fertility to men and couples whose life plans are ready to welcome another baby!" concludes Dr. Mills.
