A vasectomy is a procedure for male birth control. It entails cutting and sealing the tubes that carry the sperm from the testicles to the semen. That means that ejaculations will no longer carry sperm, preventing conception during sexual intercourse. While it’s one of the more reliable forms of birth control (with a failure rate of less than 1 percent), it’s also invasive, with much higher risks than other forms of contraception like condoms or birth control pills.

What Is a Vasectomy?

Vasectomies are surgical procedures that block or cut the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the semen. These tubes are called vas deferens. There are two types of vasectomies. Traditional vasectomies require an incision in the scrotum, while no-scalpel vasectomies do not require this incision because it's made on either side of the scrotum. No scalpel vasectomies use a lighted tube, known as a laparoscope, which is inserted through a small incision in the navel to seal off or cut both tubes simultaneously with heat or a sharp current.

Types of Vasectomies:

There are two types of vasectomies, each with its own set of pros and cons. Traditional vasectomies require a scalpel to slice open the scrotum, before using a clamp to tighten the tube that carries sperm out of the testicles. No-scalpel vasectomies use no incision in order to perform this procedure which can be less painful and is less invasive. One benefit of no-scalpel vasectomies is that it does not cut into surrounding tissue as much as traditional methods do, limiting the risk for infection or other complications from the surgery. In general, many patients say no-scalpel procedures are faster than traditional surgeries because doctors don't have to make a linear cut all around the scrotum.

How to Prepare For Surgery?

A vascelox is a surgery. It carries some risks, such as bleeding and infection. Your doctor will probably tell you to drink a lot of fluids the day before your vasectomy and go home early to rest afterward.
Your nurse or doctor will also want to know when your last bowel movement was so they can do a pre-op anal probe to check for an infection that might keep them from doing the surgery.

What Happens During Surgery?

The procedure takes about 20 minutes with the patient under local anesthesia. Typically, an incision is made in the region of the scrotum (near or below the penis) to create a space. The physician then places a device into this area that cuts and seals off each vas deferens tube. Finally, stitches are inserted to allow for the re-absorption of any excess fluids that may have collected around the scrotum during surgery.

Recovery And Future Considerations:

The recovery time for No-Scalpel Vasaport is shorter than that of a standard vasectomy. Patients are generally able to resume light physical activity within a day or two. An orgasm may be uncomfortable for several weeks but it won't cause any changes in either the fluid ejaculated or the shape of sperm, meaning there's no need to wait before having sex again. While not all vasectomies are reversible, there are some steps that can be taken if you're interested in reversing your vasectomy at a later date.
