Essential Vasectomy Facts

Studies show that men who have a vasectomy report no change in their libido or their ability to have an erection nor an orgasm.

Men who have a vasectomy say that they feel more free when having sex with their partner without the worry of an unplanned pregnancy.

A vasectomy is a simple outpatient procedure.

Men who have vasectomies still experience normal orgasms.

Vasectomy does not affect semen production. Instead, it prevents sperm from being transported to mix with other seminal fluids.

Vasectomies do not affect a man’s sexual function, sex drive or sex life.

Following a vasectomy you’ll still need to use contraception for at least 8 to 12 weeks after the operation because sperm will still be in the tubes leading to the penis.

A no-scalpel vasectomy means no stitches.

Men can usually return to work 1 or 2 days after a vasectomy.

A vasectomy doesn’t protect against STDs so you’ll still want to use a condom for the best protection.

The cost of a vasectomy is far less than the cost of female sterilisation or the long-term cost of birth control medications for women.

A vasectomy doesn’t provide immediate protection against pregnancy so use an alternative form of birth control until your doctor confirms there are no sperm in your semen.
