Vasectomy

A safe and effective procedure for preventing pregnancy.

How it works?

During vasectomy, our licensed physician will close or blocks the tubes that carry sperm. When the tubes are closed, sperm cannot leave a man’s body and cause pregnancy. Sperm are made in the testicles. They pass through two tubes called the vasa deferentia to other glands and mix with seminal fluids to form semen. Vasectomy blocks each vas deferens and keeps sperm out of the seminal fluid. The sperm are absorbed by the body instead of being ejaculated.

How much does it cost?

The non scalpel procedure will cost $699.00 and includes a free initial consultation.

Is it reversible?

Vasectomy is a form of birth control for men that is meant to be permanent. It can be reversed, but is considered a difficult and unreliable procedure.

Is it effective?

Vasectomy is the most effective birth control for men. It is nearly 100 percent effective.

How safe is vasectomy?

Most men can have a vasectomy safely. But like any medical procedure, there are risks. Talk with your health care provider about whether vasectomy is likely to be safe for you. Having a vasectomy will have no effect on your sexual performance. Pre medication can be administered to reduce any pain, discomfort or anxiety.

How long does recovery take after a vasectomy?

Recovery will depend on your general health and lifestyle. Most men lose little or no time from work. After a vasectomy, you should avoid strenuous work or exercise for about a week. Rare complications may require more days at home. However, prompt medical attention usually clears up any problems. Sexual activity can begin again within a week. Further protection is encouraged after the procedure, as it takes about three months to clear sperm out of your system.

Although it is extremely effective for preventing pregnancy, vasectomy does not offer protection against acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) or other sexually transmitted diseases. Consequently, it is important that vasectomized men continue to use condoms.

The licensed physicians of Vitality look forward to discussing any further concerns or questions you may have in your consultation.
