5THINGS MEN SHOULD KNOW ABOUT A VASECTOMY
A vasectomy is a simple, minimally invasive surgical procedure used as a form of male birth control to prevent pregnancy. During this 30-minute procedure, a surgeon cuts the tubes that transport sperm within the male reproductive system. The sexual health of a male is not affected as a result of a vasectomy and the procedure is extremely effective in preventing pregnancy.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
1. The procedure doesn’t last long, and it can be performed in your doctor’s office While there is some pain after the procedure, it is not severe and you should be able to resume normal activities after three days.
2. It takes about two months for a vasectomy to take effect It’s important to continue using another method of birth control until you’ve been cleared by your doctor after you check up. This is because vasectomies don’t work immediately as sperm still needs to be cleared from the two tubes that carry it from the testicles to the urethra.
3. A vasectomy will not interfere with your sex life Your sex drive, erections, or ability to climax will not be affected. There will also be no change in sensation or the amount of fluid that comes out when you ejaculate, although the amount of sperm that goes into the total ejaculate is not very much – less than a drop.
4. It can be reversed A vasovasostomy is 85% successful or better depending on how far you are out from your vasectomy. This procedure is much longer and performed under a microscope where the two tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra have to be reconnected while you’re under anaesthesia.
5. Try to finish family planning before deciding on a vasectomy If you are thinking of having children in the future, it may be best to hold off on getting a vasectomy. It is also important that your wife knows about your decision if you are married. Ultimately, if you are over the age of 21 and capable of making your own decisions, the final one on this lies with you
