In brief: Stopping BCP+ condom
Partner can stop taking birth control pills and no need for male partner to use condom. Vasectomy is less invasive that female tubal ligation.

In brief: Infertility
Men have a vasectomy for sterilization.
A term that represents the inability to father children with your own genetic contribution. The vas deferens carries and matures sperm. If the vas deferens is disconnected (vasectomy), it is unable to perform this job function and the man is infertile.There are fewer risk for men to have this sterilization procedure than women to have tubaligation.
