If you have considered a permanent form of birth control such as vasectomy, you are recommended to be completely sure that you do not want to have kids—or any more kids. However, if this is not your case but you still want to undergo the procedure, a possible backup plan might be sperm cryopreservation. This would allow you to have children later via intrauterine insemination (IUI) or IVF.
