Vasectomy

Vasectomy

A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure for male sterilization and permanent birth control. The federal government reports that only 15 out of 10,000 couples get pregnant during the first year after a vasectomy. This makes it as effective as female sterilization and is simpler to perform, safer, and less costly.

The procedure blocks the tubes that carry sperm and thus the sperm are not able to leave the man’s body.

Vasectomy

What is involved?

A local anesthetic is injected into the pelvic area.The doctor then makes an incision on each side of the scrotum to reach the tubes that carry sperm. The tubes are blocked with surgical clips or may be tied off. Typically a small section of each tube is removed.

How long does it take to recover?

Most men report the pain is “slight” or “moderate” and most lose little or no time from work. An athletic supporter, ice bag, and non-aspirin pain reliever may help ease the pain. Our physicians use local anesthesia to block the feeling of pain. It is much safer than general anesthesia.
