Abstract: 

Introduction: Rapid population growth has been recognized as the most fundamental impediment in economic and cultural development of the world’s countries today. This underscores the importance of attention to reproduction control and family planning, and vasectomy is known as a simple and effective family planning method. We studied the vasectomies performed in Noorsaadat Center from 1997 to 2002.
Methods: A descriptive study was performed on 4397 men who underwent vasectomy in Noorsaadat Center. Medical records of all of these persons were studied and intended data were transformed to data collection forms.

For 52.8% of the clients, the last child was male and for 46.6% the last child was female. The previous contraceptive method was natural method in 47.4%, condom in 17.4%, 3.1% did not use any method, and the rest used other methods.
Conclusion: Rapid population growth, youthfulness of Iran’s population, impressionability of social, economic, cultural, and heaths indicators from population growth, and vulnerability of women from multiple pregnancies, especially the unwanted ones, necessitates serious partnership of men in family planning.
