A vasectomy is a procedure that doesn't provide immediate protection against pregnancy.
It is imperative to use an alternative form of birth control until it is confirmed by your doctor that there are no sperm in your semen.
Also, post-vasectomy, you will need to wait for several months or longer and ejaculate 15 to 20 times or more to clear any sperm from your semen, before indulging in unprotected sex.
Vasectomy won't protect you or your partner from sexually transmitted infections.
The no-scalpel treatment is promising of -
The no-scalpel procedure uses a needle to perform the procedure and therefore there is less pain, minimal bleeding and bruising, or infection.
Men can return to work mostly between 2-5 days after a no-scalpel procedure, whereas the conventional method takes time to heal.
The no-scalpel surgery takes half as time to perform as compared to the conventional vasectomy procedure.
Getting a vasectomy is usually really safe. But like all medical procedures, the risks associated could be temporary pain, bruising, and infection and it gets better in a couple of days.
Very rarely, the cut ends of the vas deferens could grow back together, which would lead to a pregnancy.
Your doctor will inform you of the procedure and the dos and don'ts for the procedure.
It is, however, advisable to inform your doctor of the medication you are already on, to know if they can be of any critical issue during the surgery.
The major differentiator between the procedures is the points at which the surgery is performed on the vas deferens.
The vas deferens are tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra, where it mixes with semen.
In a no-scalpel Vasectomy, the scrotum is held with a scalpel and a needle is used to make a hole in the scrotum.
Gently through this hole, the vas deferens are pulled out and cut. The cut ends are then sealed, clipped, tied, or stitched. The vas deferens are then placed back in the normal position.
The benefits of a no-scalpel vasectomy are it can be done more quickly than a conventional vasectomy and requires no sutures to close up incisions.
A no-scalpel vasectomy therefore also means less pain and bleeding.
In a conventional vasectomy surgery, an incision is made on each side of the scrotum to reach the vas deferens.
The incisions are made on either side of the scrotum and the vas deferens are pulled out gently, cut and either end is clipped, stitched, or tied. The only difference between the two procedures is the size of the incisions.
Vasectomy is an outpatient procedure and the patient can return home on the same day of the surgery.
It is advisable to wear loose and comfortable clothing.
Temporary pain and discomfort are common.
Complications like blood oozing from the surgery site.
Running a temperature of about 104 degrees.
There could be redness and pain in the surgical area.
Doctors advise applying an ice pack to the scrotum for the first two days after surgery.
You should not undertake strenuous activities and start with lighter ones in the initial days. Avoid sports and lifting heavyweight for a couple of weeks.
Avoid sexual activity for at least a week post-surgery.
