March Madness = More Vasectomies, According to Michigan Medicine
Who would've thunk? But University of Michigan's Urology Center in Livonia has added extra appointments for this very reason.
A professor at Michigan Medicine spoke with MLive and said that during March Madness they expect to perform between 50-60 vasectomies which is double the amount compared to a typical month. In 2016, a study done by U of M, found that there was an increase of 30% during the first week of the tournament.
So, what's the correlation? Even though the procedure itself is quick and easy, recovery usually takes about 2-3 days, which could require taking time off work.
Because we tell them to take it easy for a few days, being able to do something they enjoy while taking it easy is often appealing.
Basically, you have an excuse to kick back and veg out on the couch all weekend so if you've been thinking about getting snipped now is the time to do so.
