About Vasectomy

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a surgical procedure to cut, clamp or seal the vas deferens. The vas deferens is the tube through which sperm passes from the scrotum to the urethra. The urethra is the tube through which sperm and urine pass out of the penis.
Vasectomy causes sperm to be blocked inside the testes, and therefore sperm is not released during ejaculation. It is a permanent birth control method.
However, sperm decrease may be gradual after a vasectomy. Couples may be required to continue using birth control measures to avoid pregnancy until the semen sample detects no sperms.

How is Vasectomy Performed?
Vasectomy may be performed in three ways:

  • No-Scalpel Vasectomy, also called Key-Hole Vasectomy
    • The surgeon locates the vas deferens by sensing the scrotum.
    • A numbing medication is given to the patient.
    • The surgeon makes a tiny hole in the scrotum using a sharp hemostat instead of a scalpel.
    • The surgeon may pull the vas deferens through the small hole to tie it or cut it.
    • Stitches are not required, and the incision heals quickly.
  • Open-Ended Vasectomy
    • The patient’s scrotum is shaved and cleaned.
    • A numbing medication is given into the area.
    • A small surgical cut is made in the upper part of the scrotum.
    • The vas deferens is tied and cut.
    • The testicular end of the vas deferens is not sealed. This allows sperm to stream continuously into the scrotum.
    • The incision is closed using stitches or skin glue.
    • Open-ended vasectomy may prevent pressure in the epididymis and testicular pain caused by back pressure.
  • Vas-Clip Vasectomy
    • The patient’s scrotum is shaved and cleaned.
    • A numbing medication is given into the area.
    • A small surgical cut is made in the upper part of the scrotum.
    • The vas deferens is squeezed shut with a clip to stop the flow of sperm.
    • The incision is closed using stitches or skin glue.

How to Prepare for Vasectomy?
  • Certain medication that the patient is taking may be stopped two weeks before the surgery.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient is taking with or without a prescription. These may include supplements or herbs or drugs.
  • The doctor should be informed if the patient has any ailments or medical conditions.
  • On the day of the surgery, the patient should wear loose and comfortable clothing.
  • A scrotal support may be required after the surgery.
