Shedding light on vasectomies

Austin (KXAN) – It’s a big decision and a popular choice for families who are done having kids. About half a million men undergo the permanent birth control procedure each year.

Dr. Koushik Shaw with the Austin Urology Institute explains that the common surgery doesn’t have to be scary.

There are a lot of misconceptions about vasectomies. Getting the right information is key.

Getting a vasectomy does not lower sex drive or cause erectile dysfunction.

The surgery only lasts about 15 minutes.

Most insurance covers vasectomy procedures, so out-of-pocket costs are minimal or nonexistent.
