March Madness means more... vasectomies?

March Madness is here, and men across the country will spend this weekend doing nothing but watching basketball.Some of those couch potatoes will actually have an excuse for vegging out.

Doctors have seen a growing trend of guys scheduling vasectomies during this particular time of year.

Some urologists say they have 50 percent more patients undergoing the procedure just before the NCAA Tournament kicks in.

It takes a weekend to recover from a vasectomy, and ice pack treatments, possibly a cold beer as a substitute, require inactivity and rest. So March Madness provides a perfect recuperation pastime.
