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.

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).
