A vasectomy is a quick, minimally invasive procedure for permanent contraception, blocking sperm flow with minimal discomfort and providing reliable birth control.

A vasectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed to stop sperm from entering into the ejaculate and stopping unwanted pregnancies. During the procedure, the male vas deferens (tube that allows sperm to travel from the testicle to penis) is divided and sealed off to prevent the sperm from travelling. Although vasectomy reversals can be performed, vasectomy should be considered a permanent form of birth control. Men should be certain they do not want to have any further children when considering a vasectomy.

Given the minimally invasive nature, vasectomies are commonly performed in a physician’s office. A vasectomy is performed as an outpatient under local anesthesia and generally takes less than 30 minutes to perform with minimal discomfort during the procedure.

Frequently asked questions about vasectomies.

A vasectomy has minimal to no discomfort. Most men only require over the counter pain medications after the procedure. Pain during a vasectomy is minimized with the no-scalpel technique performed at our centre.

It is recommended to avoid any heavy lifting for the next 7 days after your vasectomy. If your job does not require heavy lifting, you are able to return to work sooner.

It is recommended to avoid sexual activity for 7 days after your vasectomy. It is also important to remember, you are not immediately sterile after the procedure. As it can take 2-3 months for sperm to clear from the ejaculate, additional forms of contraception are required until sterility is confirmed via semen testing.

No – it typically takes 2-3 months for sperm to clear from the ejaculate. You are also required to perform a semen test to confirm that no sperm are present. If the Premium Package is selected, your results will be sent directly to you with an explanation to avoid an in-office appointment.

The risks of a vasectomy are very low. Complications can include the following:

  • Hematoma: Bleeding under the skin that may cause swelling or bruising.

  • Infection: Very rare, but can present with redness or pus at the vasectomy site.

  • Granuloma: Sperm can leak from the vas and lead to a small lump called a granuloma. This inflammatory tissue does not tend to be painful but can be removed if bothersome.

  • Post-vasectomy pain: – 1-2% of men can develop persistent discomfort in the testicle or epididymis (where sperm is stored) that can last for several months. In rare cases, the pain can last longer.

  • Recanalization: Despite vasectomy, the tubes can reconnect in less than 1/2000 of men. Although very rare, this can lead to unintended pregnancy.

It is important to continue to use protection until you have the post-vasectomy testing to confirm that there are no sperm in the ejaculate. After that, the chances of getting someone pregnant are extremely low however, this can happen as the tubes can reconnect. Pregnancy due to recanalization is estimated to happen in 1/2000 people or less often.

A vasectomy will not have any impact on your erectile dysfunction, peeing or even the quantity of your ejaculate. Your sex life will be unaffected and in fact, many men report an improvement in their sexual function as they do not have to use barrier contraception methods for the purpose of avoiding pregnancy.

If you are taking any blood thinners (aspirin, warfarin, etc...) please check with our office for instructions.

Shave the scrotum 24 hours before the procedure.

Take a warm shower the morning of the procedure.
