How does a No Scalpel Vasectomy work?
Sperms are made in the testicles. Sperm leaves the testicles through two tubes called the vas deferens, and mixes with other fluids to make semen. The sperm in semen can cause pregnancy if it fertilises with a female egg.
A vasectomy blocks or cuts each vas deferens tube, keeping sperm out of the semen. Sperm cells stay in the testicles and are absorbed by the body. Starting about 3 months after a vasectomy, the semen won’t contain any sperm, so it can’t cause pregnancy. But a male will still have the same amount of semen he did before. Semen just won’t have any sperm in it.
Vasectomies don’t change the way of having an orgasm or how ejaculating feels. The semen will still look and feel the same after a vasectomy — it just won’t be able to get anybody pregnant.
What is a No Scapel Vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a simple surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. The small tubes in the scrotum that carry sperm are cut and blocked off, so sperm can not leave your body and cause pregnancy. The procedure is quick, and a patient can go home after the procedure. Vasectomy is very effective for birth control.
Vasectomies are meant to be permanent — so they mostly can’t be reversed. You should only get a vasectomy if you’re 100% positive you don’t want to be able to get someone pregnant for the rest of your life.
The term “vasectomy” comes from the name of the tubes in your scrotum that are blocked during the procedure: vas deferens.
If you have decided you are done having children or do not want to have children you may consider having a vasectomy.
Advantages of No Scalpel Vasectomy
- Vasectomy is a safe and highly effective approach to preventing pregnancy.
- It is permanent, so there is no need to worry about birth control again.
- The procedure is simple to do and usually involves only a small amount of discomfort.
- There is a short recovery time after the procedure.
- It is the most cost-effective of all birth control methods.
- It is private. It is your choice if your partner knows about it.
Drawbacks of No Scalpel Vasectomy
- Vasectomy does not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV. Always use a condom to reduce the risks of STDs.
- It requires a visit to a clinic or medical office.
- There is a risk of swelling, bruising, and tenderness for a short time after the procedure.
- Very rarely, the tubes that carry sperm can grow back together; when this happens there is a risk of pregnancy.
- Some men, or their partners, later change their minds and wish they could have a child or additional children.
