If your personal circumstances have changed and you no longer wish to have children, our expert urologists at Nuffield Health The Vale Hospital can provide you with rapid access to a vasectomy (male sterilisation) procedure.
Why choose Nuffield Health Cardiff & Vale Hospitals for your vasectomy procedure?
If you have reached an age where you no longer want to father children, our experienced urologists in South Wales can provide you with rapid access to a vasectomy. A number of consultants are experts in male fertility and will provide you with everything you need to know about the procedure before you decide to go ahead with treatment.
Nuffield Health The Vale Hospital has established itself as one of the leading private hospitals for providing excellent men's health treatment and professional advice in South Wales. We pride ourselves on the expertise, confidentiality and success our hospital staff consistently deliver to patients. Our leading urologists are fully supported by our attentive matron led nursing team, who are available 24/7 to provide clinical support.
Having a vasectomy is an important and serious decision and should be discussed with your partner before proceeding with treatment. If your personal circumstances change, the procedure can sometimes be reversed and fertility can be restored. Vasectomy reversal surgery is also regularly performed by our urologists.
How to book a private consultation at Nuffield Health Cardiff & Vale Hospitals
If you are considering male sterilisation or want expert advice from a men's health professional, you can discuss your treatment options with one of our urology consultants in either Cardiff or Vale by booking a private consultation via our dedicated hospital enquiry team on 02920 009856.

As well as the Vale Hospital, our urology consultants operate out of Nuffield Health Cardiff Bay Hospital for initial consultations, diagnostic imaging and pre-op tests.
Subsequently, you can choose which of our two locations you want to undertake your post surgery aftercare with.
Is a vasectomy right for you?
You should only consider a vasectomy if you are certain that you do not want any or further children. If you have a partner, it is important to discuss your thoughts with them. If you do have any doubts, it’s best to wait until you have made a definite decision.
How does a vasectomy work?
The operation works by stopping the sperm made in the testes reaching the semen. Your body can still produce sperm, but the testicles reabsorb it naturally. The surgery is under local anaesthetic and lasts about 30 minutes. You may have some pain and swelling following the procedure but you should be able to return to work in two to three days.
After surgery, we will check your semen to make sure no sperm is present. You should use alternative contraception until these tests are complete. This can take up to twelve weeks.
Will my sex life be affected?
A vasectomy will not affect your sex drive or your ability to enjoy sex. Semen is still produced, there is simply no sperm in the semen. However, you should use another form of contraception until we have confirmed that the operation is a success through a semen test. You should also remember that a vasectomy protects against causing pregnancy, but it does not protect against any sexually transmitted infection.
