This study aimed to determine how men’s participation in using the vasectomy contraceptive method in TanjungMorawa District Deli Serdang Regency. This research was conducted through qualitative research with a descriptive approach. The research informants were determined by using a purposive sampling technique by involving a married couple who used the vasectomy contraceptive method and family planning, counselors. Data collection techniques were done through interviews, observation and documentation study. The results showed that there were socio-cultural factors that influence men's participation in family planning programs, namely the existence of gender inequality where there was an assumption that family planning was the only women's care. When men use vasectomy contraception, social stereotypes emerge to consider that men as stupid husbands and wives were believed who did not comply with their husbands. Having men participating as contraception users will create new construction in the household so that family planning is no longer synonymous with women's care, but men can also participate in it.
