A permanent pregnancy prevention solution for men

A surgical procedure for providing a permanent contraceptive solution
A vasectomy is a contraceptive method suitable for men who are sure they don’t want anymore children.

It’s a popular method of family planning chosen by millions of men worldwide. It’s safe, effective and offers a permanent solution to contraceptive needs.

The procedure takes about 15 minutes, and is one of the most effective methods of contraception that exists – the failure rate is approximately 1 man in 2000.

Advantages of a vasectomy

A vasectomy can offer several advantages compared with other contraceptive methods, including:

  • A man can have a vasectomy at any time.
  • It is a permanent method of contraception, so you do not need to remember to use contraception again to prevent pregnancy.
  • It doesn’t interrupt sex or affect your sex life. A man’s sex drive after a vasectomy will be the same as before. After a vasectomy a man can still have an erection and experience an orgasm.
  • A vasectomy has no physical side effects for the man, other than preventing him from getting his partner pregnant.
  • These benefits come from a successful vasectomy procedure performed by a trained provider.

Things to consider

When deciding if a vasectomy is right for you, here are a few quick facts you should consider:

  • A vasectomy requires a surgical operation. Like any operation it has risks but it is very rare for something to go wrong.
  • As a vasectomy is permanent you should only choose vasectomy if you do not want children or have completed your family. You cannot change your mind once the operation is done.
  • A vasectomy does not protect against sexually transmitted infections.
  • In case of any questions or doubts before opting for this method, we advise consulting a doctor or arranging a meeting with our clinic staff.

How a vasectomy works

A vasectomy involves closing the tubes that carry sperm from the man’s testicles.

Closing the tubes means there is no sperm to fertilise the woman’s egg during sex. The tubes normally deliver sperm into and from a man’s penis when he ejaculates, so preventing this process is a highly effective contraceptive method. It will not affect you or your partner’s ability to have an orgasm or your sex drive.

A vasectomy is a simple surgical procedure that can be done in several ways. Typically a small cut is made in the scrotum, the tubes identified and then cut or sealed.

A vasectomy is not effective immediately. Another contraceptive must be used for the first three months after a vasectomy while remaining sperm are cleared beyond the area where his tubes were blocked.
