WHAT IS A VASECTOMY?

Vasectomy is a simple office procedure for male sterilization. It is considered the most effective birth control method procedure for men. Surgical reversal of a vasectomy is possible, but it is technically difficult and expensive to perform. Couples should carefully consider the decision to proceed with a vasectomy.

HOW IS IT PERFORMED?

Vasectomy is performed in the office as an outpatient procedure. Some patients may receive oral medication to help with relaxation. After undressing and lying on a table, an injection of local anesthetic will numb a small area of scrotal skin. One or two small incisions are made in the scrotum with either a scalpel or a pointed clamp ("No Scalpel" method). The vas deferens is delivered through the incision, and the tube is sealed, cut, and the ends buried apart. The ends of the vas are then sealed off using one of several methods. The small skin incisions may be closed with absorbable stitches. The entire procedure usually lasts 15-30 minutes.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER?

During a vasectomy, the two tubes (vas deferens) that transport sperm from the testicles to the urethra are cut and sealed. The testicles continue to produce sperm, but once the sperm reach the point of obstruction in the vas the body digests and absorbs them. Since sperm only contribute to a small percentage of semen volume, you will not notice any change in ejaculation. After a vasectomy, active sperm remain in a portion of the vas. Numerous ejaculations are required to flush the sperm and render the semen clear, so contraception will be necessary for a period of several weeks or even months.

HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY?

On the day of the procedure, it is best to rest and use an ice pack on the scrotum. Most men undergo the vasectomy procedure on a Friday and are able to return to work the following Monday.The scrotum may appear bruised and slightly swollen for up to a week. A small amount of blood or drainage from the incision is normal.

To speed the process of recovery, follow these tips:

  • Stay off your feet as much as possible for the first two days.
  • Wear an athletic supporter or snug cotton briefs for support.
  • An ice pack on your scrotum can reduce swelling in the first 48 hours.
  • Tylenol is best for mild discomfort. Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen.
  • Avoid heavy lifting, exercise, and sexual activity for one week.

WILL MY INSURANCE COVER A VASECTOMY?

Most insurance plans cover Vasectomy. Our office will assist you in contacting your insurance carrier to verify your benefits and coverage prior to the procedure. If you are not covered by an insurance plan our staff will be happy to discuss payment options with you.

REMEMBER

You are not sterile until semen specimens have been examined and are clear of sperm. Continue contraception until advised.
