The cost of vasectomies can be a nightmare for people who need them.
And if they’re looking to pay the bills, they can find it difficult to do so without a medical insurance plan, especially for women with preexisting conditions.
But now there’s a new way to get around those barriers.
A group of men and women are building an online marketplace for people to buy vasectoms.
It’s called the Vasectomy Supply and Demand website, and it lets people search and buy their vasectomeres online.
The group is aiming to grow its business by partnering with medical providers, including gynecologists and obstetricians.
They’re also working with healthcare workers and providers of fertility care, like Planned Parenthood, to create more information about vasectomy, so that people can make informed decisions about the procedure.
“It’s really important for providers to be able to talk to patients about the risks and benefits of the procedure, and to educate them about what’s available,” said Dr. Andrew Prentice, an obstetrician and gynecologist who is the co-founder of the vasectomy supply and demand website.
“That’s something that’s going to have a positive impact on provider-patient communication, which is one of the key things that we’re trying to promote.”
A vasectomy is a medical procedure that uses a blood vessel in the neck to detach the vas deferens, or sperm, from the fallopian tube.
The procedure is performed by a surgeon using an instrument called a tubal ligation, and the vas is pulled out of the vagina and then ejaculated.
Vasectomy supplies and demand is the market for this type of procedure, but the website doesn’t sell them.
The idea is to create a marketplace for vasectomonees to buy their supplies.
The site uses a blockchain to facilitate payments.
Anyone can sign up for a supply, and anyone can buy it, for a monthly fee.
Once you buy a supply online, you can search and see which providers are selling it, as well as the prices.
The site also tracks the price of vasectomy supplies from the most recent month.
When people buy a vasectamere online, the price is updated on the blockchain and displayed on a website where users can compare the prices of the supply and the prices at other providers.
“We think that by being able to offer people options, and being able see how much they’re paying for it, it’s going the opposite way of how it was before,” Prentice said.
“The idea is that if you’re buying a vaseline online, and you want to go back to buying it, you might see that the price has gone up and down in the last few months.
And you’re looking for something else.”
The price changes every month, and Prentice says the site keeps a database of the prices that people are paying for each supply.
When a vasector goes on sale, the prices go up.
“If we can keep the price up and still have it as accessible to as many people as possible, it creates an incentive for people, because if you can buy a lot of vasolets at the same time, then you can get them delivered to your door as quickly as possible,” Prentices said.
The website’s platform uses an algorithm to predict which providers have the highest and lowest prices.
Prentice estimates that the site will be able sell a lot more vasectomes by the end of the year.
“A lot of providers have been willing to partner with us because we know that they’re going to be the cheapest providers to deliver,” he said.
While Prentice thinks vasectomy suppliers will be the biggest winners from the site, he thinks there are other providers who will benefit from it.
“There are some people who might be less willing to give it to someone who can’t pay for it,” Pawnson said.
He says that this will open the door for more providers to get involved.
“I think we’re going from a lot fewer providers to having a much more robust supply and market,” he added.
