Vasectomy vs Condom Use
Condoms provide an effective method of protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STI). Vasectomy alone does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases.
Advantages of Condoms
For a man with multiple sexual partners or who is concerned about exposing himself to sexually transmitted diseases through his partner condoms provide an effective method of protection against sexually transmitted infections.
Condoms as a method of contraception are effective when used correctly with success up to 95%.
Condoms also offer flexibility in terms of contraception. If a man and his partner decide to have children, once they stop using condoms, his partner can get pregnant.
Disadvantages of Condoms
Condom failure is common such as when condoms slip off or burst during sex with failure rates ranging from 5-40%. Condoms make sex less spontaneous, sometimes decrease enjoyment for one or both partners. One needs to have one to use one and sometimes they are not available when you need them most.
Advantages of Vasectomy
Vasectomy is a very effective method of permanent contraception and men. The failure rate of vasectomy is less than 1 in 2000. There is no need to use condoms and sex can be more spontaneous and less awkward. With a vasectomy, a man does not need to rely on the woman for contraception. If you’re wondering if she is secretly trying to get pregnant, you can have a certainty that you are not the father.
Disadvantages of Vasectomy
While vasectomy is a permanent option of contraception, about 5% of men have a change of heart and mind and want to have children after they had a vasectomy. This often happens when they get into a new relationship. While vasectomy reversal or sperm retrieval for IVF is possible, these options are expensive and are not always effective.
Vasectomy also does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. A small number of men develop chronic pain or discomfort and may require treatment for that.
Bottom Line: Vasectomy vs Condoms
Condoms are a good contraceptive option for men who plan to have children in the future. A vasectomy is a good option for men who are certain that they do not want to have more children in the future.
