The non-scalpel vasectomy procedure is a type of surgical contraception that is 99.85 percent effective and ideal for men who do not want to have children in the future.
If you are considering having a vasectomy or wondering if the procedure is right for you, please consider the following information.
How Does the Vasectomy Procedure Work?
The vasectomy procedure works to allow males to ejaculate without releasing any sperm. To accomplish this, a single, small incision is made in the scrotum. From here, the tube that connects the testicles to the prostate is divided, then a small segment is removed and cauterized. This stops the release of sperm.
An in-office procedure that takes just 15 to 30 minutes, vasectomies are painless and require no scalpels or needles. Even better, patients can return to work in as little as three days and can return to their normal activities in one week.
What Can I Expect After the Vasectomy Procedure?
Following the procedure, patients may experience bruising, cramping or soreness, but this typically dissipates in a few days and can be treated with OTC painkillers. In some instances, patients may experience an infection, but the staff at Urology Experts utilizes antibiotics and safe practices to ensure your procedure is effective and safe.
