What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a simple surgical procedure that offers men a permanent contraception method. The procedure involves cutting the tubes that move sperm from the testicles to the end of the penis. After the procedure, the sperm are reabsorbed into your body through your tissue, instead of being integrated into your semen.

at MSI Central Coast

Below you can find more information about our Central Coast vasectomy procedure and services:

No-scalpel vasectomy

We only carry out no scalpel vasectomies at MSI. The procedure only requires a single small puncture in the skin which means stitches aren’t required. We also use a specially designed set of forceps which decreases the chance of infection. The no-scalpel method is associated with less bleeding and a faster recovery time.

Open-ended vasectomy

With an open ended vasectomy the testes continue to make sperm but the sperm doesn’t make it into the semen and is reabsorbed back into the body. The benefits are that this procedure is associated with less swelling and inflammation. It is also considered to be more reversible than some other procedures.

Anaesthetic options

At MSI Central Coast we offer both IV sedation (IV) and local anaesthetic (LA). Our LA *painless anaesthetic delivery technique means many patients report significantly reduced sensations of pain caused by the local anaesthetic needle. Learn more about your anaesthetic options here.

The MSI No Scalpel Open Ended Vasectomy Technique uses an inert permanent suture rather than a metal clip (which can fall off) or a dissolving suture (which can cause inflammation). We also use Bupivacaine local anaesthetic which has a longer duration of action and may protect from chronic post operative pain.

FAQ
FAQs

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

If you’ve made the decision to not have (or not have any more) children and are over the age of 18, then you may be suitable for a vasectomy. However, a vasectomy should be considered an irreversible procedure, so it’s vital that you’ve thought through your decision before having the procedure. 

After the procedure you’re likely to experience 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). We do highly recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise for at least a week after the procedure to give your body time to heal. 

As vasectomy is considered a minor, safe procedure and complications after are rare. However, it’s important to note that all surgical procedures involve a degree of risk and minor infections and Post Vasectomy Pain Syndrome can occasionally occur. Your vasectomy doctor will discuss all of the possible risks and complications prior to having the procedure.

You may feel some slight discomfort during the procedure but due to the local anaesthetic or IV sedation, most men experience minimal or no pain during their vasectomy.

Tubal ligation is a more complex procedure. It involves going under general anaesthetic (as opposed to only a local anaesthetic or IV sedation) and several scalpel incisions. The downtime and recovery period after the procedure are much longer as a result. 

A vasectomy should always be considered a permanent procedure, however, an operation to reconnect the vas deferens (the tubes that move sperm from the testicles to the end of the penis), 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.
