About the Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a procedure for male sterilization. It is a surgical procedure. It is an effective method to prevent pregnancy as a vasectomy is more than 99% effective. During this procedure, the doctor cuts the tube that carries sperm.

Testicles form the sperms. From the testicles, these sperms, through epididymis and vas deferens, reach the urethra. From the urethra, it exits the body. If the sperms ejaculate while having sexual intercourse, they travel through the female reproductive system and fertilize an egg resulting in pregnancy.

During a vasectomy, the doctor either cuts or seals the vas deferens. This results in the blocking of the sperms from exiting out of the body. Although the reversal of vasectomy is possible in some cases, it is usually considered a permanent procedure. Thus, you must be sure about undergoing this procedure. It is a cost-effective method in comparison to the female sterilization or long-term cost of precautionary measures such as condoms and birth control medications. However, it is important to note that as this procedure does not reduce the risk of sexually transmitted disease, the doctor may advise you to use condoms during sexual intercourse.

Vasectomy does not affect your ability to perform sexual activities. It does not lower your sex drive and does not lower your testosterone levels. Vasectomy has no effect on ejaculation, erection, and climax during sexual intercourse.

How is Vasectomy performed?

Vasectomy is a simple procedure and takes around 30 minutes to complete. The doctor may perform a vasectomy in the following steps:

  • The doctor injects the anesthetic on the upper skin of the scrotum to make it numb
  • The doctor makes a small incision on the scrotums to expose the vas deferens
  • The doctor then cut each vas deferens and make a gap between both the ends
  • The doctor seals then seal the ends by tying, heat procedure, or surgical clips
  • The doctor then closes the area of incision on the scrotum. The doctor closes the area with the help of stitches or glue
  • In the case of a no-scalpel procedure, the doctor, instead of incision, makes a puncture on the scrotum.

Recovery from Vasectomy

The doctor may discharge you from the hospital on the day of surgery. After the surgery, you may experience pain and swelling are the sites of the incision. If you experience intense pain or bleeding, immediately consult with your doctor. The doctor may prescribe medicines to manage these symptoms. The doctor may also provide some instructions for accelerating recovery. You should wear tight underwear to support the scrotum for at least 2 days after the surgery. The doctor may also advise you to keep an ice pack on the scrotum. Avoid sexual intercourse a few days after the surgery. You may also under semen analysis to confirm the absence of any sperm in your semen. Until then, you should use contraceptive measures during sexual intercourse.
