Why choose a vasectomy?
- It is permanent and provides peace of mind over contraception.
- It is a simple and easy procedure, usually completed within 20-30 minutes.
- There is little discomfort and few complications if any.
What is Vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a medical term referring to the cutting of the sperm tube called Vas Deferens. The Vas Deferens takes the sperm cells from the testicles to the penis during ejaculation.
Following the procedure the semen will still be produced but without the sperm cells, “shooting the blanks” as it were. The normal ejaculation and sexual activity is normally not affected after the procedure. It takes 4 months after the procedure to be fully sterile as some of the sperm cells remain in the tubes for a while.
This method is considered permanent. Male sterilisation is the most reliable method of contraception known to the medical profession.
What is Non- Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV)?
This is a simple less invasive method of vasectomy where a small single cut is made in the middle of the scrotum to access both the left and right vas deferens.
Instead of cutting the scrotal skin, the skin is punctured and the Vas deferens is delivered with two special instruments. Over 15 million men have undergone the NSV procedure worldwide since 1974, widely used in China, USA, Canada, UK, Australia and South Asian Subcontinent. This is done under a local anaesthetic where a numbing solution is injected to the skin with just mild discomfort. The method is open ended where one end of the vas deferens is left open and the other is closed.
This method is quick, less invasive, less complications, less painful; no stitches needed and leads to speedy recovery.
