|Vasectomy is the most effective method of contraception.|
What is a vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a surgical procedure of permanent male contraception. During the procedure, the male vas deferens are ligated and crossed to prevent sperm from entering the urethra, thereby preventing fertilization during intercourse.
Vasectomy is the most effective permanent form of contraception available to men.
What is a vasectomy without a scalpel?
Vasectomy without a scalpel is a method of operation in which a sharp clamp is used instead of a scalpel. This method has become widely used, as the result is a smaller "incision", or a stab wound, which usually prevents bleeding and hematomas. In addition, such a wound is less likely to become infected, and heals faster, compared to large, longer incisions made with a scalpel. This method usually does not require suturing. This method of operation is the most commonly performed type of minimally invasive vasectomy.
Before you decide to
have a vasectomy,
you need to come
to the urologist for the initial appointment.
The initial appointment with a urologist involves careful medical history taking and examination.
The doctor will ask about your circumstances. Most likely, you will be taken for surgery if you are over 30 years old and you have children.
In some cases, it is necessary to provide a certificate from a narcologist-psychiatrist, the consent of relatives, and possibly the results of consultation with other specialists in writing.
If you have a partner, discuss with him/her that you want to do a vasectomy - before making a decision.
A urologist-surgeon may deny a patient a vasectomy if he or she believes it is not in your interest.
Before prescribing surgery, the patient will need to undergo a series of diagnostic procedures, as surgery interventions are contraindicated.
How should a patient prepare for a vasectomy?
|Do not drink alcohol a week before the operation.|
|Reduce cigarette smoking to a minimum.|
|Before the operation, the following laboratory tests are performed:|
|General blood test|
|HbsAg (hepatitis B)|

HOW THE SURGERY IS PERFORMED?
"Vasectomy is a surgical excision of the vas deferens. Before the operation" vasectomy "local anesthesia is performed, which is achieved by the introduction of anesthetics into the scrotum.After the onset of anesthesia with a special instrument, the surgeon punctures the scrotum and makes a small incision. Then, using another tool, he removes the seminal duct and removes a small fragment of it. After coagulation, ligation and displacement of the ends of the ducts in different layers of scrotal tissue, the dissected ducts return to their original position".
Operating doctor - urologist,
After the surgery:
|Usually within a few days after vasectomy there is a slight discomfort and swelling of the scrotum.|
|During the first few ejaculations after a vasectomy, there is sometimes blood in the semen. It's not scary.|
|Wear tight-fitting underwear for the first few days to help support the scrotum and relieve any discomfort or swelling.|
|You can usually take a shower after the operation - consult your doctor first.|
|You can usually return to work 1-2 days after the vasectomy, but you should avoid sports and hard work for at least a week after the procedure to prevent complications.|
|You can have sex again 5-7 days after the operation. You will need to use other methods of contraception for 6-8 weeks, until the result of the control spermogram.|
During rehabilitation, it is important to strictly follow the doctor's recommendations, to avoid complications:
- Adhere daily hygiene;
- Touch the place of the procedure as little as possible;
- Treat the postoperative wound daily with an antiseptic prescribed by a urologist-surgeon;
- Abstain from intense physical activity and sexual intercourse for as long as your doctor recommends;
- Visit a doctor 8-10 days after surgery - no matter how you feel. This is necessary to control the wound healing process.
Many men are worried that a vasectomy
can cause serious problems,
but these fears are unfounded.
For example, a vasectomy will not:
|Influence your sexual capabilities. A vasectomy will not affect your libido or your courage in any way, except that it will not allow you to have a baby. Men have even reported higher sexual pleasure after vasectomy.|
|Inflict irreversible damage to your genitals. There is very little risk that your testicles, penis or other parts of your reproductive system will be damaged during surgery. In extremely rare cases, damage to the blood supply can lead to loss of the testicle, but this is unlikely to happen if your surgeon is qualified.|
|Increase the risk of some cancers. Although there have been some concerns among physicians in the past about a possible link between vasectomy and testicular or prostate cancer, there is no proven real link.|
|Increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. As with the fear of cancer, there is no link between vasectomy and heart problems.|
|Cause severe pain. After the operation you may have pain, but in most men they are insignificant and pass in a few days.|
Benefits of vasectomy:
- Vasectomy is more than 100% effective in preventing pregnancy;
- Surgery does not affect hormone levels, sexual desire and does not interfere with sex;
- The procedure is simple, performed under local anesthesia and does not require long-term rehabilitation;

|Созрел на вазэктомию, по отзывам вышел на Леонида Алексеевича, получил подробную консультацию и описание процесса процедуры, на месте сдал анализы и через неделю прошел процедуру. Доктор и ассистентка были максимально корректны и обходительны, операция прошла успешно и без осложнений. Получил ряд рекомендаций. На днях сняли швы, я доволен :)|
