Patients at times decide to undergo a vasectomy as a method of birth control where the male partner has a ligation of the ducts that bring sperm as a form of contraception.  When patients want to have children again, physicians can bring these tubes together with microsurgical techniques under a microscope and allow for the sperm to reach the ejaculate for a natural conception.  The procedure is generally done on an outpatient basis, with an easy and quick recovery.
