About Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a safe, simple minor surgical procedure that makes a man permanently sterile. In other words, he will not be able to father a child. Vasectomy is also known as the most reliable form of birth control. Roughly 15-20% or more than 500,000 American men choose vasectomy for birth control each year. Vasectomy is done by permanently cutting and sealing the tubes (vas deferens) that carry sperm.

The vasectomy procedure is done under local anesthesia procedure. The surgeon may use clips or ties to seal the opening, which prevents sperm from entering the semen. Keep in mind that Vasectomies are meant to be permanent, so they can’t always be undone.

There is little discomfort with the procedure, though some men feel a slight tugging sensation. Some doctors may use stitches to close the incision, but it depends on the case. The procedure generally takes less than 10 minutes, and the recovery time is quick. You might initially have some slight swelling or pain, so Dr. Gholami advises taking it easy.

In preparing for a Vasectomy, the doctor will go over your health history and perform a brief physical examination. You must tell the doctor if you have any of the following:

  • History of excessive bleeding or blood disorders.
  • Allergy or sensitivity to local anesthetics.
  • Any skin diseases involving the scrotum, especially infected pimples.
  • Any injuries or earlier surgery on the genitals.
  • History of the urinary tract or genitalia infections.

Be certain that you want to have a vasectomy because vasectomy surgery is considered a permanent means of birth control. If you are undecided, you may want to consider a non-permanent form of birth control such as condoms or oral contraceptive pills. Currently, vasectomy is men’s only approved form of birth control.
