Vasectomy: ‘I wasn’t willing to risk my wife’s life’



According to a leading Kenyan organization for reproductive health, vasectomies are becoming more common among men.
We have received numerous male requests.However, due to client confidentiality, we are unable to disclose the number,” the Marie Stopes Kenya director stated.
In addition, Inviolata Wanyama stated that men in Kenya were eager to “be supportive partners in the sexual and reproductive journey” and that Kenyans were becoming more aware of equitable gender roles.
On October 15, Daniel—not his real name—underwent a vasectomy in an effort to discover a more effective method of family planning.
“I was unwilling to risk my wife’s life after three caesarean deliveries, so I made the decision:Why not assist her?because, from time to time, we demand too much of women,” the 39-year-old woman told the BBC.
He claims, however, that men should have access to vasectomy services that are “friendly” to them because he had negative experiences at other centers where demeaning questions were asked.
Is it meant for you?Do you have a wife?Why do you need a vasectomy?Daniel was advised that his wife ought to be in charge of family planning.
He claims that since the procedure, he has not noticed any significant changes.
In advance of November 18th, World Vasectomy Day, Marie Stopes Kenya will provide free vasectomy services for four days.
According to the National Health Service (NHS) of the United Kingdom, a vasectomy is a surgical procedure that permanently seals or cuts the tubes that carry a man’s sperm. It can be reversed, but it is not guaranteed.
The success rate of a reversal is approximately 55% if it is performed within ten years of your vasectomy.If your reversal occurs more than ten years later, this drops to 25%, according to the NHS.
