The number of men in the United States who are choosing to undergo this procedure has risen significantly in recent years, and it’s easy to see why when you take a look at the following benefits of vasectomy
What Is A Vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a permanent birth control solution in which the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the semen are cut and sealed, preventing ejaculations from carrying sperm. Vasectomies are a safe, effective, and popular form of male birth control in today’s society. As many as one in six married couples use this procedure to regulate family size.
A vasectomy is typically performed as an outpatient surgery by a surgeon, who then stitches up the two small cuts on either side of the scrotum. Patients are free to resume their regular routines almost immediately.
Who Is Eligible For This Procedure?
The decision to undergo a vasectomy procedure is an important one. Anyone that is considering this type of birth control should weigh the pros and cons to see if it is a good fit. If you are in a long-term relationship, or have undergone genetic testing and know your child would be born with severe health conditions, then it might make sense to consider going through with the vasaxonum procedure. Vasectomies are also suitable for anyone that does not want any more children, does not have a partner, and suffers from erectile dysfunction.
What To Expect Before The Surgery?
Before the surgery, your urologist will explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you might have. The night before the procedure, men are required to take an injection of antibiotics to prevent infection. Some people also take anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen or aspirin. It is also a good idea to stop eating or drinking anything (including water) about 8 hours before your scheduled surgery time so that you do not need to go to the restroom at all during surgery.
Upon waking up from anesthesia, you may experience some pain in your testicles and will feel groggy from the medication still in your system.
What Happens During The Surgery?
There are two methods of performing a vasectomy, the conventional vasectomy, and the no-scalpel vasectomy. In both cases, an incision is made in the scrotum with a scalpel or needle. The ends of the tubes are then sealed off with surgical clamps, using sutures or special glue to cut off the sperm flow. With either method, there will be minimal pain during and after surgery because when cutting and sealing off the tubes that carry sperm out of the body no sensation is left in those tubes, and cutting them doesn’t affect sensation elsewhere.
Recovery Process After A Vasectomy:
After the suicide, you may experience some swelling and bruises in the area. Minor discomfort is normal and will subside in a few days. For 2-3 weeks, it’s important to avoid strenuous activity or contact sports as well as hot tubs and swimming pools. Your doctor may also recommend that you wear boxer shorts instead of briefs or tight clothing to reduce the amount of pressure on your scrotum and give it time to heal properly. It takes about 10 ejaculations before sperm becomes present again in semen, so do not have unprotected sex until this time period has passed.
