To find out myths and to suggest ways to overcome them among the acceptors of non-scalpel vasectomy (NSV) This study was conducted on NSV acceptors at Family Welfare Centre of SMS Hospital Jaipur (Rajasthan). The subjects were interrogated about the motivational factors, myths they had and the socio-demographic profile was also enquired. On repeat visits complications if any were recorded and treated. Chi-squire test was used to find out the significance of difference between proportions. Conclusions: Out of total 327 vasectomy acceptors, 251(66.7%) had their wives in the age group of 30 and above. Their wives were significantly (P<.001) more literate than their husbands. Satisfied clients were the main motivational factor (P<.001). The causes of delaying vasectomy were many fears and out of all fears to lose of sexual desire was the commonest.
