March playoffs are here, and men across the country will spend this weekend lounging on the couch watching wall-to-wall basketball. For many of them, it’s doctor’s orders.

Apparently, many men decide this is the perfect time for a vasectomy. In fact, across the country, the number of scheduled vasectomies tends to jump by about half during the week the men’s NCAA basketball tournament begins.

It’s a phenomenon that urologists like Dr. Stephen Jones at the Cleveland Clinic have been noticing for several years now.

“Every time that we got to march playoffs, it’s at least 50 percent more men than we’d had on the other weeks,” Dr. Jones said. “A lot of those guys are already ready. They’re propped back and hopefully icing down and ready for a good weekend.”
