• Men who are living with HIV or are on antiretroviral (ARV) therapy can safely have a vasectomy. Special arrangements are needed to perform vasectomy on a man who has advanced or severe clinical disease.
  • Vasectomy does not prevent transmission of HIV.
  • Urge these men to use condoms in addition to vasectomy. Used consistently and correctly, condoms help prevent transmission of HIV and other STIs.
  • No one should be coerced or pressured into getting a vasectomy, and that includes men with HIV.
