Our Story

The MSI story begins all the way back in the 1920s:


In the 1920s, MSI Australia helped to establish the United Kingdom’s first family planning clinic – giving married women, for the first time, access to tried and tested methods of birth control.


Some 55 years later, in 1976, Dr Tim Black and his wife Jean took over the London clinic, and took MSI Reproductive Choices, developing a global partnership spanning 37 countries.


MSI Australia was established in 2000 and continues to embody the principles upon which we were founded: that everyone deserves choice around the number and spacing of
their children.


MSI Australia began offering


Dr Justin Low, Director of Vasectomy Services begins a national expansion of services and introduces the “MSI No Scalpel Open Ended technique” across the country.


MSI Vasectomy now has 33 locations and 14 experienced vasectomy doctors around the country.

Giving Australians a Choice

At MSI Vasectomy Australia we believe that reproductive health is about choice. Providing vasectomies means giving families a choice about how many children they have. It means giving men the choice to take responsibility for contraception in their relationship. It means giving couples a choice when it comes to permanent contraception. The choice is provided through a relatively non-invasive and simple procedure. We understand that access to reproductive services can be limited by people’s financial circumstances, and the upfront costs associated with elective surgery, which is why we have worked to ensure that many of our clinics are licensed for private health claiming purposes – one of the few vasectomy providers in the country with clinics that can accept private health insurance.

Our Commitment
to Quality

As Australia’s largest vasectomy provider, we are committed to ensuring that our vasectomy facilities, nurses, and doctors all meet the highest possible standards of clinical care. To this end, we are regularly assessed by the National Medical Advisory Committee: an independent group of relevant medical specialists. They help us make sure that our clinical procedures, processes and protocols meet and exceed the standards they set. Our unwavering commitment to quality was recently recognised by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards, who awarded us 7 Met with Merit ratings. MSI Vasectomy Australia also has a content review and quality process, ensuring the medical information we provide to the public is both accurate and up-to-date.

Yes, vasectomies are covered by Medicare in Australia. This means that Medicare will pay a portion of the cost of the procedure, which can help to reduce out-of-pocket expenses for patients. However, patients may still need to pay a gap fee, depending on the cost of the procedure and their individual circumstances.

While vasectomies are covered by Medicare (and in many cases Private Health Insurance) in Australia, patients may still have to pay a portion of the cost out of pocket. The exact amount of the fee may depend on a number of factors, such as the provider, location, and any additional tests or procedures that may be required.

The legal age for getting a vasectomy in Australia is 18. However, most doctors recommend that men wait until they are at least 25 years old and have considered their decision carefully. It is important for patients to discuss their options with a healthcare provider and to carefully consider the potential benefits and risks before undergoing the procedure.

Vasectomy is the only permanent method of contraception for men, with a failure rate of around 0.1%. While the procedure does not provide immediate protection against pregnancy, it is effective once a follow-up semen analysis confirms that there is no longer any sperm in the semen.
