Safe, innovative, no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy
Vasectomy is one of the safest and most effective birth control methods. It is much safer, less invasive and less costly than tubal ligation. Every year, more than a half-million men undergo vasectomy. Vasectomy is 99.8 percent effective.
Sperm originates in the testicles. During ejaculation, sperm travels through the urethra, passing through thin tubes called the vas deferens. In conventional vasectomy, the objective is to obstruct the outflow of sperm by creating an obstruction in the vas deferens. This procedure, however, involves an incision, stitches and pain.
With the no-scalpel, no-needle vasectomy, there is none of that. Instead of a scalpel, a specially designed clamp is used to isolate the vas deferens. A small puncture is then made through which the semen-carrying tube is cauterized. Because there are no knives or scalpels, there is far less bleeding, only mild discomfort and less risk of postsurgical complications.
The no-scalpel, no-needle vasectomy procedure usually takes about 30 minutes. The scrotum and vas deferens are anesthetized, making the no scalpel, no needle vasectomy virtually painless for the patient. After the procedure, the patient may experience some swelling or bruising of the scrotum for a couple of days, which is normal. Keep in mind that you will not be instantly sterile immediately after the procedure. Since sperm can remain in the vas deferens for weeks or months after the procedure, you will need two postsurgical semen tests to determine that sperm no longer exists in your semen.
Vasectomy does not change anything about your sexual performance, desire or function. You will still ejaculate normally, but the semen will not contain sperm.
