Vasectomy Q & A

What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a permanent male sterilization procedure that your Advanced Urology Medical Offices surgeon can perform on-site in less than an hour. A vasectomy is highly reliable, boasting a 99% effectiveness rating, and it's the most cost-effective type of long-term birth control available today. 

How does the vasectomy process work?

The Advanced Urology Medical Offices surgeons perform no-scalpel vasectomies with local anesthesia. In this type of vasectomy, your surgeon creates a small puncture in your scrotum and then spreads the skin so they can see both vas deferens tubes (the tubes that carry sperm). 

After closing the vas deferens off via tying, cauterization, or another method, the no-scalpel vasectomy is complete. The small puncture doesn't need stitches; it will heal naturally. Your surgeon typically bandages the puncture, and you'll be able to walk out of the office.

What is the recovery like after a vasectomy?

One of the major advantages of a no-scalpel vasectomy is a quicker and more comfortable recovery. Your Advanced Urology Medical Offices urologist will recommend specific recovery guidelines. Usually, this includes ice pack application, wearing snug underwear, and taking over-the-counter pain relievers when needed. 

When can I stop using other birth control after a vasectomy?

Continue using other birth control, like condoms, after your vasectomy. Your urologist typically does male fertility testing, also known as a sperm count, at least a couple of times in the months following your vasectomy. 

After your urologist confirms that you’re infertile, you can stop using other birth control methods. 

What happens if I change my mind after a vasectomy?

Some men who have a vasectomy later decide that they still want to have children. Some common reasons for this include a new marriage, loss of a child, or a change of heart for some other reason. The Advanced Urology Medical Offices urologists specialize in microscopic vasectomy reversal techniques that can reliably reverse vasectomy. 

Even if your vasectomy was performed years ago and you've changed your mind about it, the skilled team of urologists is ready to help you.
