Oxfordshire Vasectomy Service (Marie Stopes) service
Oxfordshire Community Vasectomy Service provides a no-scalpel vasectomy service. The minor procedure takes 15 minutes and is very safe in competent hands. The failure rate of vasectomy is very low (1 in 2000 after clearance has been given).
Vasectomies carry a lower failure rate (in terms of post-procedure pregnancies) with less risk related to the procedure than female sterilisation. It is recommended by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) as the preferred method of male sterilisation.
