If you have decided to forego having children or are looking for a permanent form of birth control, you may be considering a vasectomy. This surgical procedure for men is a safe and highly effective way to prevent pregnancy. At MSI Vasectomy St Kilda, we utilise the latest advancements in vasectomy technology with our ‘MSI no scalpel, open ended’ method. 

This technique helps to minimise the risk of infection and reduces the recovery time for patients. Furthermore, our virtually pain-free anaesthetic delivery technique* sets a new standard for vasectomy procedures, providing a comfortable and stress-free experience for our patients.

*Our painless needle technique means many patients report experiencing little to no pain when administered. 

What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a minor procedure and a permanent method of contraception for men. It involves the permanent interruption of the vas deferens (the sperm carrying tubes), to prevent the release of sperm during ejaculation. Over time, the body reabsorbs the sperm, and the semen is produced without sperm.

How is a vasectomy performed at MSI in St Kilda?

For all of our vasectomies we only use the ‘MSI No Scalpel Open Ended technique’ and we use 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.

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

No scalpel open ended technique

A ‘no scalpel, open-ended’ vasectomy is a modern technique for performing a vasectomy that involves using a special instrument to make a tiny puncture in the scrotum instead of making an incision with a scalpel.

This method is designed to reduce trauma to the tissues, decrease bleeding and discomfort, and speed up the recovery time. Additionally, in the open-ended technique, one end of the vas deferens is left open, which reduces the risk of long-term pain and discomfort.

Anaesthetic options

You can choose to be sedated or have the procedure using a local anaesthetic. Please read the IV Sedation (IV) versus Local Anaesthetic (LA) to learn more about your anaesthetic options. Please note that a general anaesthetic option is not available.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Typically you can resume sexual activity about a week 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.

No, a vasectomy should not affect a man’s sex drive or sexual function in any way. The only change is the absence of sperm in the semen, which has no impact on sexual desire, arousal, or performance.

No, having a vasectomy should not affect a man’s ability to have an erection. The procedure only involves cutting the vas deferens, which does not impact the blood flow or nerve function required for an erection.

No, you do not need a referral from a general practitioner to have a vasectomy in St Kilda. However, it is recommended that you speak to your family or doctor to discuss your options and to ensure that vasectomy is the right choice for you.

Yes, vasectomies can be reversed in some cases, however we don’t recommend the procedure as the success rates can vary. The reversal procedure is more complicated than a vasectomy and is generally less successful the longer it has been since the original procedure.

Most men can return to work within a few days after a vasectomy, although this may vary depending on the nature of the work. It is recommended to avoid strenuous physical activity for two weeks after the procedure to allow the body to heal properly.
