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 first. 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 2 to 3 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 12 weeks.

Will my sex life be affected by a vasectomy?

  • A vasectomy will not affect your sex drive or your ability to enjoy sex
  • Semen is still produced, there is simply no sperm present
  • You should use another form of contraception until we have confirmed that the operation is a success through a semen test
  • You should remember that a vasectomy protects against causing pregnancy, but it does not protect against any sexually transmitted infection.
