Brief Description

Vasectomy is a surgical procedure performed as a contraceptive method in men. It involves the cutting or blocking of the vas deferens, which carries sperm from the testicles, preventing sperm from mixing with ejaculated semen during sexual intercourse.


What it Involves

Vasectomy is a relatively straightforward family planning surgery. Here's an overview of the steps involved:

  • Anesthesia. - Local anesthesia is administered to ensure the procedure is virtually painless.


  • Accessing the Vas Deferens. - The surgeon makes a small incision or puncture in the scrotum to access the vas deferens.


  • Cutting or Blocking. - The vas deferens are cut and either blocked or cauterized to prevent the passage of sperm.


  • Closure. - The incisions are closed with stitches or surgical adhesive.


Why the Surgery is Performed?

Vasectomy is performed for several reasons:


  • Parenthood Control. - It offers an almost 100% effective contraceptive method, eliminating the need for other forms of contraception.


  • Responsible Parenthood. - It's an option for those who feel they have completed their family or do not wish to have additional children.


Benefits of the Surgery

Vasectomy offers several benefits:

  • Effectiveness. - It's highly effective in preventing pregnancy.


  • Permanent. - Provides permanent parenthood control.


  • Less Invasive. - Compared to female sterilization, it's an outpatient procedure, less invasive, and carries a low risk of complications.


  • Quick Recovery. - Most patients can return to their normal activities relatively quickly.


  • No Impact on Sexual Function. - It does not affect sexual function or libido.


To determine if vasectomy is right for you, here are some key considerations:


  • Consider your future parenthood plans
  • Discuss the decision with your partner
  • Understand that it's a permanent choice
  • Consult with a urologist or fertility specialist
