Expert Vasectomy Newcastle
Take Control of Your Future Sooner With a Lower Upfront Cost
Looking for a vasectomy in Newcastle? At Marie Stopes Australia, we offer an easy, fast procedure with fewer complications by using the ‘gold standard’ technique. As part of our commitment to increasing access to vasectomy services, MSI Vasectomy is very excited to partner with Brunker Road Medical Centre in Newcastle.
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 virtually *painless anaesthetic delivery technique is the benchmark in vasectomy procedures.
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:
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.
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.
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.
After vasectomy surgery, you will need to keep using alternative contraception until a semen analysis confirms that there is no more sperm in the ejaculate. This typically takes approximately 3 months.
We have two models of care to allow you to choose the service that best suits your needs and circumstances. You may be looking for somewhere that’s closest to you, maybe you know you would like to be ‘knocked out’ (IV sedation) or perhaps you want to use your private hospital insurance.
Whatever your wishes and circumstances are, we have an option for you. Both options allow you to have your vasectomy in a convenient location, in accredited clinics and receive high-quality care. To learn more about the different models and their locations, take a look below.

Are there any risks or complications after the vasectomy procedure?
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.
Can a vasectomy be reversed?
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.
Does a vasectomy protect me against sexually transmitted infections?
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.
When can sexual activity be resumed?
Typically you can resume sexual activity 7 days after having a vasectomy. However, for the first 2 to 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.
How effective is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is the most effective form of permanent contraception and the procedure has a failure rate of only approximately 0.1%.
Is it similar to female tubal ligation?
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.
