Benefits of No Scalpel Vasectomy ?
A vasectomy is one of the most effective form of birth control method available for a male. Vasectomies are over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy — but not right away. It takes about 3 months for semen to become sperm-free. The long term failure rate of vasectomy ranges from 1 in 3000 to 1 in 5000, in different studies.
3 months after vasectomy, a simple test called ‘semen analysis’ to is done to check for sperms in the semen. For a ‘semen analysis’, the semen sample is put in a specimen bottle and sent to the laboratory. The laboratory will confirm if there are no sperms in the semen sample and if the vasectomy is working as birth control. Unprotected sex should not be practised until it’s safe with a sperm free semen analysis confirmation.
A vasectomy is really effective because it’s designed to be permanent, and an individual can’t forget to use it or mess it up. It prevents pregnancy round the clock for the rest of the life. So once it is confirmed that there’s no longer any sperms in the semen, that’s pretty much it. Vasectomies are get-it-and-forget-it birth control.
There’s a very unusual chance that the cut ends of your vas deferens can grow back together after a vasectomy, which means that causing a pregnancy is possible. But this is very rare.
