After a vasectomy, any new sperm produced by the testicle will be reabsorbed by the body rather than getting into the semen. You will not have any symptoms/side effects due to your sperms not getting into the semen.
There are no long term medical side effects of having a vasectomy. Your body will still produce the same quality and quantity of male hormone that make you a man. You will have the same amount of semen.
The only thing that will change is that you will not be able to make your partner pregnant. Most men feel sex becomes more relaxed and enjoyable than before as they are not worried about accidental pregnancies.
Having a vasectomy does not affect your sex drive, ability to have and maintain erections, experience orgasm or ability to ejaculate.
Dr Ayush will first do a pre-operative consultation with you, where he will discuss your decision to have the vasectomy, explain the procedure and its complications. He will need to perform a physical examination of your scrotum to make sure it can be done as an out-patient procedure. Your partner is welcome to join you in this appointment.
Thereafter, you can book for the Vasectomy at a date and time convenient for you. It is strongly advised you plan and book it at a time so that you can take it easy for a week after the procedure.
There are limited waiting times for an appointment. Appointments for the initial consult as well as the procedure are available 5 days a week.
With a conventional vasectomy, a doctor would make 2 incisions, one on either side of the scrotum. With a scalpel free vasectomy, there is only a single incision in the middle of the scrotum, through which the entire procedure is performed.
Most men are pleasantly surprised at how quick & painless the procedure is.
Each person is different and it cannot be guaranteed that you will feel no discomfort. Usually, the local anaesthetic injection causes a stinging pain that lasts for less than 20 seconds. You may feel the sensation of pulling and pinching for the rest of the procedure, but this is usually not painful. You would be able to get more of the local anaesthetic injection at any stage of the procedure, if you are in any discomfort.
Intercourse may be resumed after a week, but contraception should be continued until semen analysis show that your semen is completely clear of sperms. You and your partner will need to use alternative contraceptive methods for at least 3 months until ejaculate samples have been tested and you have been told they are clear of sperm.
It takes some time to get the vas deferens clear of all sperm (dead and live). You must have one semen sample without the presence of dead or live sperm to be considered sterile. This is usually done at 3 month from the time your vasectomy was performed.
