There will be approximately 50 percent more vasectomies this week, according to the Cleveland Clinic, and the reason has to do with the start of March Madness.Weird.
Dr. Stephen Jones, a urologist at the Cleveland Clinic, said men opt to get the surgery during the NCAA men’s basketball tournament so they can watch the games while recovering.
“They need at least a day with ice, keeping the area cool,” Jones said. “Not so much because it hurts, it really doesn’t hurt much – but it’s an area that swells very easily. So, if they’re going to spend a whole day doing nothing – it’s not hard to figure out that they’d want to do it on a day they’d like to be sitting in front of the television. There’s nothing that makes guys want to be in front of a television more than March Madness.”
