A vasectomy is a procedure your Aspen Medical Group, Inc. specialist offers as a form of permanent birth control for men. During the procedure, they seal tubes that carry sperm, or your vas deferens, in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia. The procedure is fast and painless with permanent results.
Numerous benefits are associated with choosing a vasectomy as a birth control method, including:
Though you’ll be awake during the procedure, you won’t feel any pain. After your vasectomy, you don’t have to worry about using condoms to prevent pregnancy.
Prior to a vasectomy, your Aspen Medical Group, Inc. provider reviews your medical history, completes an exam, and discusses your lifestyle and future goals to ensure you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
During the vasectomy, your doctor numbs your genitals using a local anesthetic. They make a tiny puncture in the scrotum to locate your vas deferens. Your doctor cuts it and seals it shut using heat, tying it, clipping it closed, or multiple methods. They close the incision at the surgical site with medical glue or tape. A vasectomy usually takes less than 20 minutes to complete.
After a vasectomy, you might experience bruising, pain, or swelling at the treatment area that usually subsides within a few days. Wear tight-fitting underwear for two to three days, and apply ice to the area as needed to reduce swelling. Limit strenuous physical activity and sexual activity for about a week or as recommended by your Aspen Medical Group, Inc. specialist.
After you have ejaculated about 20 times, sperm should no longer be present in your semen. Use another form of birth control until then. Schedule a follow-up visit with your doctor after 6-12 weeks to confirm your semen is sperm-free.
Although a vasectomy helps prevent pregnancy, it doesn’t protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Vasectomies are a highly effective form of permanent birth control for men. The procedure is sometimes reversible, but you may not be able to father children in the future.
