In brief: Vasectomy risks

Vasectomies are very safe procedures.
The risk of a life threatening complication is less than 1 in a million. Risk of infection or bleeding is less than 1%.

In brief: Very safe. Min risk.

Vasectomy is safer, cheaper, and more effective than a woman getting her tubes blocked/tied.
It will not affect a man's sex drive or ability to ejaculate b/c that's dependent on the prostate/seminal vesicles that aren't affected. It's irreversible; ppl who try have limited success. It takes 3 months to make sure the vasectomy worked and is not 100%, but very very close. No needles/scalpels needed!
