What is a vasectomy?
Vasectomy or ‘male sterilisation’ is a simple and reliable method of contraception. It is usually considered permanent, although in some cases the procedure can be reversed.
What is the procedure?
During a minor operation, the tubes that carry sperm from a man’s testicles to the penis are cut, blocked or sealed with heat. Sperm is then prevented from reaching the semen ejaculated from a man’s penis during sex. It’s a quick and relatively painless surgical procedure, usually carried out under local anaesthetic.
A vasectomy has no effect on sex drive or ability to enjoy sex. You will still have erections and ejaculate normally. The only difference is that your semen will not contain sperm.
How long will it take?
It takes around 15-20 minutes.
How long will you be in hospital?
In most cases, you will be able to return home the same day.
