Vasectomy is a quick and relatively painless surgical procedure which ensures permanent sterilisation in men. The tubes that carry sperm from a man's testicles to the penis are cut, blocked or sealed with heat. You will be able to return home the same day.
A vasectomy has no effect on sex drive or ability to enjoy sex. You will still have erections and ejaculate normally. The only difference is that your semen will not contain sperm.
You should have a bath or shower before you come to the clinic.
You should not empty your bladder prior to your appointment as you will be asked to provide a urine sample before the test to check for any sign of infection.
On admission you will be greeted by a nurse who will check your details, ask you some brief questions about your medical history and record your blood pressure and pulse.
The doctor performing the procedure will then talk you through the test and you can ask any questions that you may have. You will then be required to sign a consent form.
The test usually takes about five minutes, but please allow one hour for your visit. The procedure is not usually painful although there may be some discomfort. A local anaesthetic gel is applied directly to the urethra and the cystoscopy is then carefully advanced up the urethra into the bladder. When the test is complete, the cytoscope is removed smoothly and easily. You will probably feel the need to pass urine afterwards as the bladder has been filled during the test.
You will be taken to the recovery area and asked to provide another sample of urine. You will then be offered a drink of water, and after a short rest you will be given discharge information and you can ask any more questions you may have before being allowed to go home.
