Vasectomy: Tools for providers

Family planning providers can use the checklists and tables in this report to: 1) Counsel clients about vasectomy and ensure that they make an informed choice; 2) Identify men with conditions that require a delay or special consideration before they can have a vasectomy; 3) Explain the vasectomy procedure; 4) Try to make sure that the client's decision for vasectomy is well-considered and his own; and 5) Explain to a man what he should do before and after the vasectomy.
