We want to help every man, woman and family make an informed decision when choosing a vasectomy.
What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a permanent form of contraception for men that involves surgically separating the tubes (called the vas deferens) that transport sperm from the testicles to the penis. It is one of the most reliable forms of birth control, but since it’s permanent, it is only appropriate for men whose family is complete.
Will it affect your capacity to give or receive sexual pleasure?
There is no correlation between sexual performance and a vasectomy, although many men feel that removing the anxiety associated with fear of pregnancy. as well as avoiding possible conflict with their partner over ‘the use of contraception’, actually makes lovemaking more pleasurable.
Is a vasectomy painful?
Most men are surprised how little pain it causes, which given the amount of anxiety many of us feel beforehand, is a very pleasant surprise. In fact, once the anesthesia is administered (this can be done by a very fine needle or even a spray applicator), there should be no pain at all.
How long does a vasectomy take?
The length of time ranges from 10- 30 minutes depending on the experience of your provider and the different challenges each person’s body might present.
