A vasectomy is a minor procedure that is performed generally as a method of birth control. During the procedure, the channel through which the sperm travels is severed, blocking sperm cells from entering into the semen. Sperm will still be produced following this procedure but will be absorbed by the body.
No-Scalpel/Minimally Invasive Vasectomies
During a no-scalpel vasectomy, the doctor will create a small puncture. This allows the doctor to stop the flow of semen through the tube without the added stress and trauma caused by cutting.
Prior to each procedure, the doctor will apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
After the procedure, you should stay off your feet for 24 to 48 hours to decrease the risk of complication and injury. In most cases, you may resume sexual activity within 4 to 7 days post-surgery; however, you will remain fertile until all semen in your body has been ejaculated or absorbed into your body. To reduce the risk of pregnancy, consult with your physician and use proper birth control methods until your physician says otherwise.
