Vasectomy

This information is about vasectomy, a widely chosen surgical method for permanent male contraception. Our aim is to provide clear and concise guidance to help understand the vasectomy procedure, factors influencing the decision to undergo it, and effective strategies for recovery and ensuring long-term reproductive health and well-being.

What is Vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a surgical procedure for permanent male contraception. It involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra, to prevent sperm from being ejaculated during intercourse.  

  • The primary reason for undergoing vasectomy is to achieve permanent male sterilization, when an individual wishes to avoid any future risk of pregnancy. 

What It Involves:

  • Can be done in the doctor's rooms during a 45-minute appointment. 

  • One small incision is made in the scrotum under local analgesia 

  • Vas deferens is cut, tied, or sealed to prevent passage of sperm 

  • Post procedure, we strongly recommended 4 days off work to speed recovery and reduce risk of complications. 

  • Contraception needs to be continued until a semen samples confirms the absence of sperm 2 months after the procedure 

  • A vasectomy is considered a highly effective form of contraception, with a success rate of over 99%. Once the procedure is performed, sperm are no longer present in the ejaculate, removing the risk of pregnancy.
