I am no expert on how the male reproductive system works completely but from some of my research on vasectomies (Dh has discussed getting one) I've come across info on the sperm absorbtion. Apparently a man makes new sperm daily and when that is not released the sperm is absorbed back into the body.
I know there is obviously a difference between them free floating in the body vs what nature intended.
I'm more natural minded, so I'm not really for Vs but Dh is thinking about it mostly because our birth control options are nonexistent:/ Why does BC have to be such an issue, ugh!
