Those with a newborn should consider postponing vasectomy until the baby is over 6 months old, since earlier is when the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS or crib death) is greatest, about 1 per 2000 births.
Sperm Cryopreservation (a.k.a. pre-vasectomy sperm banking) is “insurance” every man should consider.
It is not a guarantee of future fertility but it may be a good idea if you ever want another child later (and a small waste of money if you don’t). This service is provided at Victoria Fertility Centre in Victoria Phone 250-704-0024. $550 is the cost of processing the sample and storing it for the first two years, after which storage can be renewed as you wish. One specimen usually suffices. That usually yields enough semen for 8 to 12 attempts at artificial insemination (AI), or, if AI doesn’t work in the first few tries, in-vitro fertilization (IVF).
