Vasectomy: effectiveness, side effects, care and cost

Vasectomy is a method of male sterilization that involves the sectioning and ligation of the male vas deferens through surgical intervention.

It is a permanent method of contraception, since it prevents the exit of sperm with the ejaculate and, therefore, pregnancy.

The effectiveness of vasectomy is very high and has few side effects. In addition, in most cases, it is reversible through the so-called vasovasostomy.

How is a vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a surgical operation that consists of blocking the  (channels responsible for transporting the semen) of the male reproductive system, so that the passage of sperm from the testicles to the urethra is interrupted.


After ejaculation, the sperm will be stored in the  instead of going outside and, with time, it will be reabsorbed by the body itself.To perform the vasectomy, a surgical intervention that lasts about 20 minutes is necessary and can be carried out in two basic ways:
Vasectomy with scalpel
Through a cut in the scrotum (bag of the testicles), the surgeon accesses the vas deferens, binds and cuts them, thus blocking the passage of sperm. You can also cauterize them with the electric scalpel.
Vasectomy without scalpel
Instead of using the scalpel to make a cut, simply make a small hole with special forceps to reach both vas deferens. In the first place, the surgeon will look for the vas deferens with the palpation of the scrotum and fasten them with ring-shaped forceps. Then, with sharper forceps, a tiny puncture is made that allows access to the vas deferens to bind or cauterize them.

After the vasectomy
The recovery of the vasectomy operation is fast. The man will only need to rest for a few days so that the wound closes well.

It is possible to feel discomfort, a little pain or swelling in the testicles, but these should not be very intense.

However, before performing a vasectomy, man should bear in mind that this method of definitive sterilization also has other advantages and disadvantages that may appear in the future.Vasectomy is a method of male sterilization that involves the sectioning and ligation of the male vas deferens through

How is a vasectomy done?
Vasectomy is a surgical operation that consists in blocking the vas deferens (channels responsible for transporting the semen) of the male reproductive system, so that the passage of sperm from the testicles to the urethra is interrupted.

After ejaculation, the sperm will be stored in the epididymis instead of going outside and, with time, will be reabsorbed by the body itself.

Vasectomy does not alter the production of sperm (spermatogenesis) or hormone production. It only prevents the exit of sperm with semen in order to avoid pregnancy.

To perform the vasectomy, a surgical intervention that lasts about 20 minutes is necessary and can be carried out in two basic ways:

Vasectomy with scalpel

Then, with sharper forceps, a tiny puncture is made that allows access to the vas deferens to bind or cauterize them.
In both cases, local anesthesia is used to do the procedure. Finally, the remaining hole is sealed with a
The intervention without a scalpel is less bothersome for the patient, since the size of the hole made is smaller, the bleeding is less and takes less time to heal. In addition, the risks of infection or other co
It should be noted that vasectomy does not prevent ejaculation. The semen will have the same volume and composition coming from the secretions of the prostate and the seminal vesicle. However, the vasectomized male will go into a situation of azoospermia, that is, total absence of sperm in the semen.
