Vasectomy – 5 Things Men Should Know

A vasectomy is a simple, minimally invasive surgical procedure.  Vasectomy is a form of male birth control to prevent pregnancy. During this 30-minute procedure, a surgeon cuts the tubes that transport sperm within the male reproductive system. A vasectomy is extremely effective in preventing pregnancy. It does not affected a mans health.

What you should know:

  • The procedure doesn’t last long, and it can be performed in your doctor’s office

    While there is some pain after the procedure, it is not severe and you should be able to resume normal activities after three days.

  • It takes about two months for a vasectomy to take effect

    It’s important to continue using another method of birth control until you’ve been cleared by your doctor after you check up. Vasectomies don’t work immediately. Sperm still needs to be cleared from the two tubes that carry it from the testicles to the urethra.

  • A vasectomy will not interfere with your bedroom life.

    A vasectomy will not affect your drive, erections, or ability to climax. There will also be no change in sensation or the amount of fluid that comes out when you ejaculate. The amount of sperm that goes into the total ejaculate is not very much – less than a drop.

  • Reversal

    A vasovasostomy is 85% successful or better depending on how far you are out from your vasectomy. This procedure is much longer and performed under a microscope. The surgeon reconnects the two tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. Reversal is done under anaesthesia.

  • Try to finish family planning before deciding on a vasectomy

    If you are thinking of having children in the future hold off on getting a vasectomy. Your partner and you should discuss this decision. Ultimately, if you are over the age of 21 and capable of making your own decisions, the final one on this lies with you.
