What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is one of the most effective forms of permanent contraception. It is a minor surgical procedure that involves separating the cut end of the tubes that move sperm from the testicles to the penis. After treatment, the ejaculated semen will contain no sperm, as they are instead reabsorbed into the body through the tissue, instead of being integrated into the semen.

Below you can find more details about the type of vasectomy procedure we provide at MSI Vasectomy Adelaide:

Open-ended vasectomy

An open ended vasectomy only closes the upper part of the tube which means the sperm are still released within the scrotum, but the volume is very small. They are naturally reabsorbed into the body, lowering the chance of having congestive epididymitis and other complications.

No-scalpel vasectomy

We only use the no scalpel vasectomy technique at MSI. The procedure only requires a single small puncture in the skin which means there’s no stitches needed. We also use a specially designed set of forceps which decreases the chance of infection.

Anaesthetic options

At MSI Adelaide we offer local anaesthetic (LA). Our LA *painless anaesthetic delivery technique means many patients report experiencing little to no pain when the local anaesthetic is injected. Learn more about your anaesthetic options here.

If you have any more questions about our Adelaide vasectomy services please don’t hesitate to contact us today. In the meantime please find below our most frequently asked questions about vasectomies.

As vasectomy is a safe, minor procedure and so risks or complications are rare. However, minor infections and Post Vasectomy Pain Syndrome can occasionally occur. You will be informed about any possible risks and complications at your consultation.

A vasectomy should always be considered a permanent form of contraception and irreversible. However, an operation to reconnect the vas deferens is possible if you want to attempt to recover your fertility. It’s important to note though that a vasectomy reversal is expensive, not normally covered by health insurance and doesn’t have a 100% success rate.

Anyone over the age of 18 can legally get a vasectomy in Adelaide. However, there are other considerations to take into account around emotional maturity and preparedness. You should take the time to consider if a vasectomy is right for you before undergoing the procedure.

Even though a vasectomy is the safest and most effective permanent method of birth control it will not protect you from getting STIs. If you don’t use protection, you are still at risk of catching an infection.

You should avoid sexual intercourse for at least 7 days after your vasectomy procedure and for the first 3 months after, you use another method of contraception. This is because it can take this long to clear the remaining sperm. You should keep using contraception until a semen test shows a zero sperm count, otherwise, you may be faced with an unwanted pregnancy.

No, having a vasectomy has no direct impact on your ability to perform sexually or your sexual desire. It also doesn’t affect the production of testosterone or your ability to get an erection or ejaculate semen.

It’s common to have some mild discomfort, swelling and bruising for a few days after the vasectomy. However, most men are able to return to work the day after their procedure (if they work behind a desk or counter). You should avoid strenuous exercise for at least a week though to give your body enough time to heal.
