Safe Vasectomy Mackay

Surgeon 1 — Surgical Care in North Mackay, QLD
Vasectomy is a relatively simple procedure for men who have decided, with certainty, that children of their own will not form part of their future. It should be viewed as a permanent form of birth control for the male.

Vasectomy is one of the most effective methods of contraception available. Its failure rate is less than 0.1%.

As for permanence, vasectomy reversal does exist but it’s success is far from guaranteed. You could have your sperm frozen but then that begs the question: are you really committed to the decision to undergo a vasectomy?

Along with its effectiveness in preventing pregnancy, vasectomy is far more affordable than either female sterilisation (tubal ligation) or birth control medications over the long term.

A vasectomy means you won’t need a condom for birth control. But it won’t protect you from sexually transmitted diseases. So, depending on your circumstances, condoms may still play a role in your sex life.

What Happens in a Vasectomy?

Vasectomy generally takes less than 30 minutes. All that needs to be done is to close off the sperm-carrying tubes (vas deferens) in the scrotum. It goes without saying that anaesthetic will be involved.

After this simple surgery, sperm produced in the testicles will be unable to travel through these tubes to mix with semen. When you ejaculate, the seminal fluid would gradually be sperm-free.

As a surgical procedure, vasectomy has a low risk of complications or side effects.
