Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the life quality of men after surgical sterilization.

METHODS:

We investigated the incidence of psychosomatic reactions, their influential factors and the quality of life among 740 men after surgical sterilization. We also evaluated the effectiveness of mental intervention for those with psychosomatic reactions.

RESULTS:

Totally, 59 (8%) of the subjects were not satisfied with their life status, including 42 (5.67%) suffering from psychosomatic reactions, and their psychosomatic reactions were related to their education background, economic status and understanding of sterilization. After 2 - 24 months of mental intervention, 34 (80.95%) of the 42 cases were cured, 6 (14.29%) relieved, and 2 (4.76%) unimproved.

CONCLUSION:

Mental intervention is effective for psychosomatic reactions in men after surgical sterilization.
