Vasectomy-Information.com has come a long way since the website was first launched in 1999. It grew out of the newsgroup alt.support.vasectomy, and remains true to the principles the newsgroup was founded on over 20 years ago. We offer information on all aspects of a vasectomy, from the pre-vasectomy shave to post-vasectomy semen samples and how to take care of yourself in between. We have always made a lot of effort to collect and link to as much information from all sources as possible, in order to help men considering a vasectomy make an informed choice.
Our goal is to create the most comprehensive vasectomy website available. We hope to provide an objective balance of quality information on the vasectomy procedure, risks and benefits, possible complications and after-effects to enable men to make the choice that’s right for them.
Our content is written in clear, easy-to-understand language for the general public and patients. All articles are formatted to make it easy to print and use during consultations. We consistently work with doctors, medical writers, and other professionals to ensure that the information on our website is accurate, evidence-based, up to date, and trustworthy.
Content creation process
- Check for updates. Our contributors continually monitor that our content is up to date and accurate. When new information becomes available, our articles will be updated.
- Review dates. If there has been significant change within a topic, then a full review will be scheduled. Otherwise, the health information pages are routinely examined every three years and the reference pages are reviewed every five years.
- Peer review and proofread. Each piece of clinical content undergoes a review process from medical professionals, which considers accuracy, balance, accessibility, and overall presentation. We have strict sourcing guidelines and cite or link to primary sources.
- Feedback. We encourage user feedback on our website. All constructive feedback is considered and investigated and, if necessary, the content is revised as soon as possible.
