For men who want a permanent form of birth control, vasectomies are a good option. For San Diego area patients and those in La Mesa, SD Urology offers innovative vasectomy surgeries and procedures. Dr. Wilson specializes in minimally-invasive vasectomies and is a leading urologist serving San Diego area patients.
A vasectomy is a form of permanent birth control for men. A vasectomy prevents the release of sperm during a man’s ejaculation. Through the procedure the vas deferens is either sealed, clamped, or cut from both testicles. The stops the sperm from combining with the semen which is ejaculated. A woman’s ovum, or egg, cannot be fertilized when there is no sperm released into the uterus.
During the procedure:
The procedure generally takes roughly 20 to 30 minutes. Following the surgery, patients should ice the region and lie on their back for the rest of the day as much as possible. There can be some mild discomfort or inflammation for the next few days following surgery. In approximately 1 to 2 days patients should be able to return to work. A back up birth control method will be necessary until the doctor can confirm that the ejaculate contains no sperm.
This procedure uses a small clamp with pointed ends. The clamp is poked through the scrotal tissue and then opened up. This procedure causes fewer complications, less bleeding, and requires a smaller hole in the skin. Usually, no-scalpel vasectomies are just as successful as a traditional vasectomy.
