After the decision of the US Supreme Court to remove the right to abortion, the number of requests for vasectomy among young Americans has increased dramatically.

Urologists have reported that more men are seeking the procedure to prevent pregnancy and avoid problems associated with abortion. Doug Stein, MD, a urologist and vasectomy advocate, said he used to have 4-5 requests for a procedure per day and now sees up to 18 per day.

Urologists in California, Iowa, and New York are also reporting a surge in vasectomy consultations and increased traffic to their vasectomy websites. John Kerington, MD, said men under 30 without children are requesting the procedure in greater numbers than before, with «60% or 70% citing the Supreme Court ruling as the reason.»

A vasectomy is a procedure that prevents sperm from passing through the vas deferens and joining with semen. The USA is the leader in this type of protection, in Europe Britain is in first place with 17-21% of men of reproductive age. In Russia, a vasectomy can be done from the age of 35, or if there are two children, or for medical reasons. The procedure is reversible. In addition, if you want to have a baby, sperm can be removed by puncture of the testicle.
