There comes a time in most men’s lives when they decide they are done building a family or have chosen the child-free lifestyle. Even after the decision is made, they may still worry about an accidental pregnancy.

A vasectomy is a fantastic option to permanently solve that problem and remove contraception management from your sex life. It’s a quick, highly effective procedure done in your doctor’s office. Since there is minimal downtime to recover, you can return to action in just a few days.

Still not sure if you’re ready? Here’s how to know it’s time for a vasectomy.

1. Your Family is the Right Size

Perhaps the most important thing to be sure of is that your family is the right size and you don’t want any more children. A vasectomy is meant to be permanent, so you should be certain that you’ll be happy not having another child.

2. You’re Tired of Managing Supplies

If you’re like most men, you have enough projects to manage every day. Making sure you have condoms or other forms of birth control on hand is just one more thing to think about. A vasectomy is one-and-done. You’ll never have to worry about buying supplies again. (Note: A vasectomy does not prevent STIs)

3. You’re Ready to Put Your Feet Up For A Few Days

The recovery period for a vasectomy includes about 2-3 days of rest and relaxation. Many men schedule their vasectomy for a Thursday or Friday to make it a long weekend and then get back to work on Monday. A lot of men like scheduling their vasectomy around sports tournaments (like March Madness), or just after a video game launch. Both offer enjoyable ways to relax and not move much for a perfect recovery.

4. You’re Over Stopping in the Middle

Nothing kills the mood like stopping in the middle of the action to fumble with a condom. With a vasectomy, you can keep going without having to think about birth control.

5. You Want to Free Your Partner From Birth Control Side Effects

If your partner has been taking birth control pills or using other hormonal contraceptives, she is likely suffering from unwanted side effects like mood changes, increased appetite, or migraine headaches. They can even lead to an increased risk of blood clots, high blood pressure, and breast cancer. After you’ve had a vasectomy, she can stop using hormonal birth control and finally be done with the side effects.

6. You’re Ready for a Better Sex Life

Many men report an improved sex life after having a vasectomy. They also tended to have sex more frequently. The freedom from worry about pregnancy and the ability to be more spontaneous enhances overall satisfaction.

7. You Like Saving Money

Vasectomies tend to be cheaper in the long run than other types of birth control methods. Plus, most insurance plans cover a vasectomy.

8. You’d Prefer a More Effective Form of Birth Control

A vasectomy is one of the most effective forms of birth control available. At over 99.9% effective, it surpasses hormonal birth control (93% effective with typical use), condoms (87%), and spermicide (70%).
