No-Scalpel Vasectomy Benefits vs. Conventional Vasectomy

No-scalpel vasectomy is a simple in-office procedure that many studies show has significant advantages over conventional vasectomy.

No-Scalpel Vasectomy is comparatively faster, has a swifter recovery time, safer (one-eighth the rate of bleeding and infection) and can be pain-free when coupled with effective anaesthesia – as done at our Toowoomba, Underwood/ Logan and Spring Hill locations.

  • With a conventional vasectomy a doctor would make two incisions, one on each side of the scrotum, perform the procedure, and then stitch up the incisions.
  • The stitches would then have to be removed about a week later.
  • With the no-scalpel approach there is no knife, no incisions, and no stitches.
  • Men who have undergone a No-Scalpel Vasectomy express amazement at the minimal physical discomfort they experienced both during the procedure and during recovery.
  • Men who were previously not considering vasectomy because they feared the scalpel can now feel comfortable, relaxed, and confident with this simple procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you can’t find the answer to your question below please feel free to contact our office – 07 2013 2322.

  • Before a Vasectomy, you may not need any sedatives.
  • No-Scalpel Vasectomy is virtually painless.
  • If you have significant anxiety light sedation is available.
  • After a vasectomy you will likely be sore for a couple of days and should take a mild painkiller.
  • The discomfort is less with the no-scalpel technique because there is minimal injury to the tissues.

You can have sex after one week, but remember to use some other kind of birth control until your semen analysis confirms you are sterile, remember you do the test three months after a vasectomy.

No! The only thing that will change is that you will not be able to make your partner pregnant. Your body will continue to produce the hormones that make you a man. You will have the same amount of semen. Vasectomy won’t change your voice, beard, your muscles, your sex drive, your erections, or your climaxes.

Some men say that without the worry of accidental pregnancy and the bother of other birth control methods, sex is more relaxed and enjoyable than before.

You should not do any heavy physical labour for seven days after your vasectomy. If your job does not involve heavy lifting, you can go back sooner. Many men have their vasectomy on Friday, so they can take it easy over the weekend and go back to work on Monday.

NSV is extremely effective! In fact, the success rate of vasectomy in our affiliated clinics has been better than 99.9%, which is amongst the highest in the world. Our vasectomy clinic offers the same procedure and potential success rate.

NO! after a vasectomy, there are always some active sperm in your system. It usually takes 2-3 months to clear them. You and your partner should use some other form of birth control until a semen test confirms that your semen is sperm free. You will be given semen test instructions after your vasectomy procedure.

Most medical experts, including special panels convened by the National Institutes of Health and by the World Health Organisation, have concluded that vasectomy is a safe and simple procedure.

Vasectomy is surgery, and all surgery has some risks, such as bleeding and infection.

Yes, but reversal operations are expensive and not always successful. If you are thinking about reversal, perhaps vasectomy is not right for you. Pre-vasectomy sperm banking (cryopreservation) is a good idea for almost anyone considering a vasectomy.

* Gentle Procedures Clinic Queensland do not offer reversals.

The pricing for a vasectomy performed by Gentle Procedures Clinic varies at each location. You can claim approximately $230 back from Medicare.
