Yes! Anybody who thinks that their family is complete, whether they have children or not, or simply does not want to father children in the future can be a candidate for vasectomy. Also, if you are one of those who seek an inexpensive outpatient method for permanent surgical sterilization, you can reap the benefits of vasectomy.
Albeit it can be reversed, vasectomy is a birth control method for those men who are 100% confident that no-scalpel vasectomy is a contraceptive choice for the rest of their lives.
Let’s find out what the no-scalpel vasectomy procedure entails, what benefits it holds, and where you can go in Gilbert, AZ, for world-class urology care.
No-Needle No-Scalpel Vasectomy Procedure
No-scalpel vasectomy, also known as keyhole vasectomy, is an outpatient and practically painless procedure. This procedure aims to prevent the sperm from reaching the semen, which is achieved by creating a blockage in the vas deferens. During no-scalpel vasectomy, a tube (vas deference) carrying sperms from the testicle (a place where sperms are produced) to the urethra is cut or clamped so that sperms can no longer become a part of the semen.
Firstly, your scrotum will be shaved and sterilized, and a urologist will numb the area with an anesthetic. Secondly, your urologist will locate the vas deferens and access them by inserting a small clamp through the skin of the scrotum. Lastly, your urologist will cut each vas (one at a time). Your urologist might use mild electric impulse, clips, or simply tie the end of the vas to block the flow of sperms through it. It is important to note that there will be no need for stitches or a gauze pad in no-scalpel vasectomy, as the small puncture wound on your scrotum will heal itself.
A post-vasectomy semen analysis (PVSA) test is recommended to ensure that your sperm count in semen has reached zero. You might be requested to have two PVSA tests before eliminating other birth control methods.
