Gentle Procedures Guide of things to consider before having a Vasectomy

If you’re thinking about having a vasectomy, it’s a decision that should not be made lightly. The procedure is permanent  and you and your partner (if you have one) should both carry out adequate research before making a final decision. There’s nothing wrong with taking time to think about this and we we would never carry out a procedure without a consultation taking place before hand. 

Before you decide to have a vasectomy your doctor will ask about your circumstances, provide information and may recommend counselling before agreeing to the procedure. Here are a few things to consider before deciding to have a vasectomy.

What is a Vasectomy? 

A vasectomy (also known as male sterilisation) is a surgical procedure to cut or seal the tubes that carry a man’s sperm to permanently prevent pregnancy. A vasectomy works by stopping sperm getting into a man’s semen which is the fluid that he ejaculates. The tubes that carry sperm from a man’s testicles to the penis are cut, blocked or sealed with heat. This means that when a man ejaculates, the semen contains no sperm and a woman’s egg cannot be fertilised. A vasectomy is a quick and relatively painless surgical procedure and there are two types; a conventional vasectomy using a scalpel (surgical knife) and one without.

Discuss the vasectomy with your partner

If you have a partner, discuss it with them before you decide. If possible you should both agree to the procedure but it’s not a legal requirement to get your partner’s permission.

Vasectomy Reversal is more difficult

Once you have had a vasectomy, it is very difficult to reverse it. Consider all your options and even use another method of contraception until you’re completely sure you want to go through with the procedure. 

Vasectomy is generally safe and effective

Vasectomy is a safe and effective birth control choice for men who are certain they don’t want to father a child in the future. Vasectomy is also proven to be nearly 100% effective in preventing pregnancy.

Vasectomies do not affect sexual function

Sperm only makes up a tiny proportion of semen so a vasectomy should not cause a noticeable change in the amount a man ejaculates.

Sterilisation does not occur right away after a vasectomy

You will need to ejaculate as many as 15 to 20 times or wait up to three months before the sperm will be cleared from both of the vas deferens which are ducts that carry sperm away from male genitalia.

The Cost of vasectomy at vasectomy clinics

The cost of a vasectomy will vary depending on whether any sedation is applied (an oxygenated sedation is available should you suffer from anxiety), which clinic you attend and what kind of health cover you have.
