Vasectomies Increase During March Madness — And It’s No Accident
Here's the ultimate in killing two birds with one stone.
There's a reported jump in the number of vasectomies performed during March Madness, most likely because the recovery needed enables men to sit on the couch watching TV for at least a few days.
It's a trend called "Vas Madness."
And what better time for that than during the onslaught of games, especially the first four days when you can watch 12 hours each day from the comfort of your couch when you don't want to get up.
According to the Washington Post, there are no official statistics to back up the claim that there's a spike, but the Daily Mail reports the Cleveland Clinic says there's a 10% jump (athenahealth also has figures backing up the idea this a real fad). And there may be something to all this: witness the schedule of a doctor in Chattanooga, Tenn. who was slated to perform 30 procedures last Friday alone.
