The effects of vasectomy on health
The study of possible adverse effects of vasectomy have been mainly focussed on hormonal balance, spermatogenesis, the induction. of auto-immune reactions and cardiovascular changes including the non-fatal myocardial infarction. The review of literature, including our own work on the immunological sequelae of vasectomy, indicates that there is no health hazard following vasectomy. The presence of antibodies to spermatozoa in some individuals, however, may effect future fertility, if reversal is requested.
