Vasectomy Mission to Ft-Bourgeois and Plasisance

The vasectomy mission to Ft-Bourgeois and Plasisance was great. we saw 11 people at Ft-Bourgeois and 36 people in Plasisance, the people were very excited about getting their vasectomies done. They ask common questions like " is it gong to hurt?'' , ''is the doctor going to use a knife?'' , ''How old do you have to be to get a vasectomy?'' and ''what is the successful rate of the vasectomies?"
I gave them an educational talk about vasectomy and it answer all of their questions.
It was my first time watching vasectomy and it looked painless. I was very happy that i get to work with vasectomy team and I a lot with them.
With a 100% success rate of two days of vasectomies :)
