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.
