What Does a Vasectomy Involve?

A vasectomy is a procedure that prevents sperm from mixing with the semen when it is ejaculated from the penis. While your body will still produce semen, it will be reabsorbed by your body. A vasectomy does not effect your ability to achieve an erection and you will still ejaculate about the same amount of fluid.
