I see from my website logs that somebody in Edinburgh typed this into Google:
can a man feel less of a man after having a vasectomy?
For some reason my name comes up second in Google’s rankings in response to that question! (No snarky comments please.)
The answer is no. You should feel less of a man if you are too afraid to have a simple, safe operation and instead you make your girlfriend or wife take the substantially increased risk of cancer that accompanies the contraceptive pill. If you don’t want children, a vasectomy is about the safest and most reliable form of contraception. And it won’t make you any less of a man.
