Find a BPAS Abortion Clinic



Although BPAS is mainly known for its reproductive healthcare services for women, it has also been providing services for men for many years.

Vasectomy is performed at a number of BPAS clinics.

We have also recently launched an online sexual health clinic, providing a range of tests and treatments for sexually transmitted infections, as well as treatment for erectile dysfunction.

On this site, you will also find useful information to advise you and your partner about reproductive health, pregnancy and abortion.

More about our services


Vasectomy is a safe and effective form of contraception for men. But it is permanent, so you should only consider it if you are sure you never want children or you and your partner do not want any more children. This is a decision that should not be taken lightly.

BPAS are specialists in providing vasectomy from a number of our clinics, including a number that offer the non scalpel technique. Visit our vasectomy page for more information.

Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy has become increasingly popular as an effective and permanent form of contraception. Most men who have chosen it value the freedom from artificial forms of contraception and the fear of unplanned pregnancy.

However, some men do come to regret the operation – usually because they have a new partner or do decide that they want more children with their current partner.

Vasectomy reversal involves an operation to reconstruct the vas (the small tubes that carry sperm) and if successful it may restore your fertility. But there is no guarantee of this success. Sometimes the healing process of the operation will block the vas. The chances of rejoining the tubes is around 80%, but the ultimate success rate of pregnancy after the operation is only 55% when the procedure is done within 10 years of the vasectomy, and 25% if it is more than 10 years since your vasectomy.
