MEDICAL CENTRES

If you have decided not to have more, or any, children, you may be considering having a vasectomy, a very safe and effective form of permanent contraception. At MSI Vasectomy Melbourne, we only use the ‘open-ended, no scalpel’ vasectomy technique, which decreases the chance of infection and our virtually painless anaesthetic delivery technique is the benchmark in vasectomy procedures. Read on to learn more about our vasectomy services and the different locations you can have a vasectomy in Melbourne.
What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure and a permanent method of contraception. It has been proven to be one of the most effective forms of permanent birth control for Melbourne men. The procedure involves separating the cut end of the tubes that move sperm from the testicles to the penis and as a result the ejaculated semen no longer contains sperm.

How is a vasectomy performed with MSI in Melbourne?

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

Open-ended vasectomy

We only perform open-ended vasectomies as this method allows the sperm to be naturally reabsorbed, which means there is less chance of congestive epididymitis and other complications.

This technique involves only closing the upper part of the tube, leaving the end connected to the testicle completely open, which enables the sperm to still be released within the scrotum, but the volume is very small.

No scalpel vasectomy

We only use the no scalpel vasectomy technique at MSI Vasectomy Melbourne. It is virtually painless as it only requires a single small puncture in the skin and no stitches. We also use a specially designed set of forceps which decreases the chance of infection.  

Anaesthetic options

Whether you prefer to be sedated or are happy to have the procedure using a local anaesthetic, we can accommodate your needs. Please read the IV Sedation (IV) versus Local Anaesthetic (LA) to learn more about your anaesthetic options.

FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions

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

A vasectomy is best suited for men who have decided not to have more, or any, children. If you are thinking of having more children in the future it may not be suitable for you. 

No, you don’t need a referral to have a vasectomy or to consult with a vasectomist in Melbourne.

A vasectomy should be considered an irreversible procedure. A vasectomy reversal is possible with an operation to reconnect the vas deferens (sperm-carrying tubes). However, we highly advise against a reversal as they are expensive, not normally covered by health insurance and don’t have a 100% success rate.

You avoid any sexual activity for at least 7 days after having a vasectomy. It’s also important that for the first 2 to 3 months after having the procedure you use another method of contraception, as it can take this long to clear the remaining sperm. You should keep using contraception until a semen test shows a zero sperm count.

Female Tubal ligation is different from a vasectomy as it’s a more complicated procedure that’s carried out under general anaesthetic and includes several scalpel incisions. As a result, the downtime and recovery period is longer.

As vasectomy is a minor procedure, complications after are very rare. However, minor infections and Post Vasectomy Pain Syndrome can occasionally occur after the procedure. Your vasectomy doctor will discuss all of the possible risks and complications with you before you have the procedure.

If you predominantly work behind a desk or counter you should be able to return to work the day after your procedure. However, if your role involves serious physical exertion, you may want to be put on light duties for your first week back, or take the week off work (we can provide medical certificates upon request).

No, a vasectomy will not affect your sex drive as it doesn’t affect the production of testosterone. It also doesn’t affect your ability to get an erection or ejaculate semen.

Even though a vasectomy is the safest and most effective form of permanent contraception, it won’t protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). You must ensure that you still use other forms of contraception if there is any risk of infection.
