What is a Vasectomy?

Sperm are produced in the testicles before moving into the epididymis, which sits on the back surface of each testicle.  These sperm remain in the epididymis where they mature.  The sperm then travels up each vas and are expelled at the time of ejaculation in the semen.

When a vasectomy is performed, the vas deferens are cut and sealed, preventing sperm from leaving the epididymis.  This way, no sperm are expelled from the penis at the time of ejaculation.
