Effectiveness: 99%+ once a vasetomy is performed the man must wait a certain amount of time before having intercourse. Also the Dr orders a follow up appt to make sure everything is not working. = Answer == Nothing is 100%. But this is REALLY close.

Currently, surgical sterilization is the most effective. Both vasectomies and tubal ligations approach 100% in effectiveness.

It should go without saying but proper, careful and consistent use of ANY contraceptive method is the key to effectiveness.
