What is a vasectomy?

A male vasectomy is a highly effective form of contraception that involves a surgical procedure to prevent a man from having children. Whilst it can sometimes be reversed, this is normally a permanent contraception method. A vasectomy involves cutting the vas deferens to inhibit sperm from entering the ejaculate. 

The vas deferens are the two tubes that carry sperm from the testicle to the glands at the base of the bladder. At this base, the sperm mixes with seminal fluid and makes fertile ejaculate that can impregnate a woman. The procedure is normally performed by making small cuts in the front of the scrotum. After the procedure, it typically takes three months for sperm to be cleared out from the tubes, so during this time it is still possible to father a child.

Vasectomy Reversal

The Metrocentre Vasectomy Services also offer a vasectomy reversal for men wanting to father children or reduce post-congestion pain as a result of previous procedures. Whilst vasectomy is generally thought of as a permanent contraception, in many cases it is actually possible to reverse this. For more information about this procedure, get in touch with us to find out more.

Vasectomy Recovery

Sex after a vasectomy should be avoided for at least three to five days to allow for a full recovery. After a vasectomy recovery period, a man’s sexual performance is not affected, nor is the ability to produce testosterone.
