New York (PRUnderground) October 18th, 2018
A surgical supply website in New York is predicting that U.S. doctors perform more vasectomies in 2019.The site, VasectomyStore.com is a web-based surgical instrument and information store that has promoted vasectomy for over 20 years. Their goal is to see a 30% increase in vasectomy during the coming year.
“Vasectomy has experienced a popularity surge in recent years,” the company said in a statement. “It’s partly the economy but also events like “World Vasectomy Day” that really spotlight the value of men taking responsibility in family planning.”
Despite it’s 99.8 success rate, vasectomy remains a largely under-utilized form of birth control. In fact reports indicate that annually only 11% of married couples in the US opt for vasectomy. “Tubal ligations outnumber vasectomies by almost 2 to 1,” reports the Los Angelas Times. “But many experts believe those numbers might reverse themselves if all the facts about these procedures were better known. Serious complications occur more often with tubal ligation.”
To provide education and training resources for patients and medical providers, VasectomyStore.com has undergone a major website overhaul. “It’s very exciting, “ says the company. “Our new site gives doctors access to the top quality surgical products like the LiBrand instruments, but also training programs, videos, and many new features.”
“Our patients section gives men access to a full database of doctors in their own communities that want to reach out to patients with personal videos, social media links, etc. There is no doubt that more couples would choose vasectomy if they could get a clearer view of how safe and simple it really is.”
