What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure performed in a Newcastle private day hospital or medical centre. It is a highly effective, permanent method of birth control for men that involves separating the cut end of the tubes that move sperm from the testicles to the penis.

Our vasectomy services at
MSI In Newcastle

At MSI Vasectomy Newcastle we only use the ‘open ended no scalpel’ technique and offer both IV sedation and local anaesthetic options:

Open-Ended Vasectomy

An open ended vasectomy only closes the upper part of the vas deferens, leaving the end connected to the testicle completely open. Your body can still produce sperm, but the testicles reabsorb it naturally. It is the safest method as it significantly reduces the risk of any complications.

No-Scalpel Vasectomy

A no scalpel vasectomy only requires a single small puncture in the skin, which means there is no need for any stitches. We also use a specially designed set of forceps which decreases the chance of infection.

Anaesthetic Options

If you choose to have your vasectomy at a medical centre we only offer the local anaesthetic option. If you choose to have the procedure at the private day hospital you can choose to have either IV sedation or local anaesthetic.

You read the IV Sedation (IV) versus Local Anaesthetic (LA) FAQ to learn more about these options.

The MSI No Scalpel Open Ended 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 Newcastle vasectomy services please don’t hesitate to contact us today. In the meantime please find below our most frequently asked questions about vasectomies.

Complications after having a vasectomy are rare, especially when performed using the open ended no scalpel technique. However, Post Vasectomy Pain Syndrome is a complication that can occur after the procedure. In most cases, the pain will subside, but in rare cases, additional surgery may be required.

A vasectomy should be considered an irreversible procedure. However it is possible to have a vasectomy reversal but it’s not recommended as it is very expensive, not normally covered by health insurance and doesn’t have a 100% success rate.

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.

Typically you can resume sexual activity 7 days after having a vasectomy. However, for the first 3 months, you will need to use another method of contraception, as it can take this long to clear the remaining sperm. You should keep using alternative contraception until a semen test shows a zero sperm count.

A vasectomy is the most effective form of permanent contraception and the procedure has a failure rate of only approximately 0.1%.

Tubal ligation is a more complex procedure than a vasectomy and involves going under general anaesthetic and several scalpel incisions. Downtime and recovery period are much longer as a result.
