Condoms? Vasectomy? Options for healthy sex and contraception

There are a few options for men’s contraception and sexual health, including using condoms or getting a vasectomy.

Some of these options are better than others depending on your situation.

Condoms best in conjunction with female contraception such as the contraceptive pill. This minimises the chances of unexpected pregnancy or a sexually-transmitted infection (STI).

Discover resources with explanations of different contraception methods, and The Man’s Manual for safe healthy sex.
