Another thing to better understand are these so called “statistics”. There are statistics for all sorts of vasectomy, reversal, pain, procedures, etc related stuff.
When someone says the odds of pvp/s are 1-2%, or 1-10%, etc for non vasectomized men, it doesn’t necessarily mean that 1-2 (or whatever number) men out of every 100 will have their number come up.
Think of scratch off lottery tickets, or multi state lottery’s. These games have odds that can be mathematically proven. This is what makes lottery’s a viable, and very profitable business.
If you look at the back side of a scratch off lottery ticket, the odds of winning are generally printed on there somewhere. If the odds of winning are 1 in 4.3, that definitely doesn’t mean that if you buy 5 tickets from the same roll, you will have a winnner in there somewhere.
These statistics are generated with mass numbers such as millions, hundreds of millions, billions, etc of tickets.
Even I have been guilty of looking at vasectomy outcome related statistics the wrong way at times, but the odds are what they are.
Back on topic, I remember a guy that was an MD who ended up with PvP/s who tried to get on shows, wrote to people that could get the word out on TV on talk shows, etc. He was turned down by everyone.
There’s a lot at stake far as vasectomy goes. From overpopulation, billions in revenue to be made, to NGO groups such as feminist movements, “world get a vasectomy day” etc, etc. Seems all these high ranking “authorities of sorts” have their reasons for keeping the truth under wraps.
