Why choose Nuffield Health Haywards Heath Hospital for your vasectomy procedure?

If you have reached an age where you no longer want to father children, our experienced urologists can provide you with rapid access to a vasectomy. All of our 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.

As a private patient at Nuffield Health Haywards Heath Hospital, you can rest assured that you are in the best possible hands for surgery. Our matron-led nursing team are at hand 24-7 to deliver first-class clinical care and support for our consultants. You will also have access to a range of our hospital facilities, including your own private en-suite room with a TV, radio and wireless internet to improve your entertainment and comfort whilst admitted.

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 regularly performed by our urologists who have obtained a successful track record for reversing the procedure.

If you are interested in having a vasectomy, we recommend that you book an initial consultation with one of our consultant urologists so you are fully informed before making a decision. To arrange a consultation, please call our hospital enquiry team on 01444 456999.

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.
