No Scalpel Vasectomy Overview

vasecotmy

Commerce, Georgia No Scalpel Vasectomy: A vasectomy is a common surgical procedure performed in our office for men looking for permanent birth control. In this procedure, a portion of the duct that carries sperm is removed. Every year more than one-half million men in the United States have this minor surgery. Vasectomy is safe, highly effective, and has no impact on erection or sexual performance. A scalpel free vasectomy is not very different from a routine vasectomy. In a scalpel-free vasectomy, the skin is opened using a razor-sharp clamp rather than a surgical blade. A length of each sperm duct is still removed, but the incision smaller.

The Male Reproductive System

Sperm are produced in the testicles. Sperm ducts then carry the sperm to mix with fluids from the seminal vesicle and the prostate to form semen. The semen passes through the urethra and is ejaculated during sexual intercourse. A Vasectomy prevents sperm from mixing with semen
by blocking both sperm ducts. Sperm continue to be produced in the testicles. The sperm, however, make it only as far as the new point of blockage in the sperm duct. At this point, the sperm is reabsorbed. As a result, there are no sperm in the semen that is ejaculated at the time of intercourse.

How will my vasectomy affect me?

The prostate and seminal vesicles continue to produce fluids that are ejaculated. In fact, the amount of fluid ejaculated decreases only about 5% after a vasectomy. In terms of sexual performance, vasectomy has no negative effects—erection and male hormone levels remain the same.

What are the benefits of a vasectomy?

The prostate and seminal vesicles continue to produce fluids that are ejaculated. In fact, the amount of fluid ejaculated decreases only about 5% after a vasectomy. In
terms of sexual performance, vasectomy has no negative effects—erection and male hormone levels remain the same.

Are there any complications?

There are no known long-term complications after a vasectomy. About 60%-70% of men develop anti-sperm antibodies in their blood, which is a harmless allergy to your own sperm. There is no evidence that these antibodies have a major effect on other organ systems.

How should I prepare for a  vasectomy?

A vasectomy is usually performed in our office or in our surgery center on an outpatient basis. Since you will receive a local anesthetic and most likely some medication to help you relax, we will require that you arrange to have someone drive you home afterward. You may also be asked to bring an athletic supporter with you.

How long does it take?

Figure 2 Incision site for vasectomyA vasectomy only takes about 15-30 minutes. First, a local anesthetic will be applied to your scrotal area. You may also be given a mild sedative to help you relax. Then either one or two small incisions (cuts) are made in the scrotum. These incisions are so small that stitches may not be needed. If stitches are used, they will dissolve by themselves.

Location of the sperm duct and its appearance afterAfter making the incisions, the doctor will cut the sperm ducts, removing about one-half inch to one inch of each duct. This is done to reduce the possibility of the sperm ducts rejoining.

 

How will I feel after the procedure?

The most common side effects of vasectomy are minor bleeding (enough to stain the bandage), some discomfort, and mild swelling in the area of the incision.  These are not unusual and should stop within 72 hours.  Occasionally, the skin of the scrotum and base of the penis turn black and blue. This lasts only a few days, and will disappear without treatment.

The most commonly reported complication is mild discomfort in the testicles that usually improves with medication, warm soaks, and by elevating the scrotum. Infrequently, a patient may experience pain around the testicles up to 20 years after the vasectomy. This is a harmless reaction and usually responds to heat and medication.

Very rarely, a small blood vessel may enter the scrotum and form a clot. A small clot will probably dissolve after time, but a large one can be painful and usually requires reopening of the scrotum for drainage. This procedure will require hospitalization and usually a general anesthetic.

Will I miss any days at work?

Most men return to work after 2 days. Some men choose to recuperate over a weekend so they don’t miss any work. Your doctor will tell you to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for the first 3 days after your vasectomy.

Is the procedure always successful?

Semen is sperm-free in almost all men following a vasectomy. Of every 1000 men who have a vasectomy, less than 2 continue to have sperm in their semen. It is very rare for the sperm ducts not to seal completely. In the event that they do not, you may need a second vasectomy.

When will I be able to return to sexual activity?

You should postpone sexual activity for 72 hours. Because sperm can survive for 6 months or more, you will be asked to bring two specimens of ejaculate for examination under a microscope to your follow-up visit. Unprotected intercourse should not take place until sterility is assured, so continue to use some form of birth control. We suggest a minimum of 20 ejaculations before the first semen analysis six-weeks following your procedure. We also recommend that a second analysis eight-weeks following your procedure to assure the absence of sperm before you resume unprotected intercourse.

Will masculinity be affected?

No. Vasectomy is not the same thing as castration, and sterility does not mean impotence. The hormones that affect masculinity (growth of facial hair, having a deep voice, sex drive) are still made in the testicles after a vasectomy. These hormones will continue to flow throughout the body in the bloodstream.

Vasectomy Reversal-What if I change my mind?

A vasectomy should be considered to be a permanent procedure. It is not for men who plan to have children in the future. However, if a couple’s situation changes, it is possible to reverse this procedure.
We do perform vasectomy reversals in our surgical facility.  If interested in a microscopic vasectomy reversal, Dr. McHugh is one of the most experienced reversal urologists in Georgia.

As someone who battles anxiety (especially around medical stuff), the idea of a vasectomy was unpleasant to say the least. At my initial consult, Dr. McHugh addressed my anxiety immediately and reassured me with a very clear picture of what to expect as well as options to ease my nerves on the day of the procedure. I ended up electing to receive nitrous (laughing gas) in addition to some anxiety medication to take prior to arriving. From the moment I walked in the door on the day of, the staff were beyond friendly, caring, and efficient. They even let me select music to listen to during the procedure. It was evident that Dr. McHugh and his staff genuinely cared about me and making the procedure as comfortable as possible according to my specific needs. It could not have been a better experience!

Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a vasectomy or vasectomy reversal. Dr. McHugh and his staff are very professional and take the utmost care of their patients. After my surgery I was contacted twice by Dr. McHugh’s office just checking in on me.
