Vasectomy and/or Reversal

A

vasectomy

is surgery to cut and seal the vasa differens, the two tubes that carry a man’s sperm from the testes (testicles) in the scrotum to the urethra. After a vasectomy, sperm cannot move out of the testes and form part of the ejaculate. It is an effective method of long-term

birth control

as it makes . Vasectomy is usually done using local anaesthesia where a small cut is made in the upper part of the scrotum; each vas deferens is cut and sealed. Stitches or a skin glue are normally used to close the wound. You may have a vasectomy without a cut, this is called a no-scalpel vasectomy (NSV). The surgeon finds the vas deferens and then gives you local anaesthetic. A small hole is made in the skin of the scrotum and the vas deferens is pulled through in order to cut and seal it. You will not need stitches. Vasectomy does not affect a man’s ability to have an erection or orgasm, or to ejaculate semen. It is extremely important to have a Post-Vasectomy Semen Analysis (PVSA) to confirm the absence of sperm. By 10 weeks, 85% of men will have no sperm in the ejaculate. Only once your physician has confirmed this finding can you consider yourself
