Since the early days of the twentieth century, vasectomy gained attention with its eugenic and therapeutic applications. Soon it was adopted for purely contraceptive purpose in many European countries. Today, vasectomy is widely used as a contraceptive tool, and it is estimated that about 50 million men have relied on vasectomy for family planning. Above all, in the United States, vasectomy is chosen as contraceptive method by nearly 11% of married couples.
