What happens in a Vasectomy Procedure?

There are two types of vasectomy procedures: scalpel and no-scalpel. We provide no-scalpel vasectomies because they are less painful, and have much lower risk of bleeding, bruising, or infection.

A no-scalpel vasectomy begins with applying anesthetic to the scrotum and vas deferens. The vas deferens, or vas, is what allows sperm to be propelled forward into the urethra, where it mixes with other secretions which create semen.

A tiny puncture hole is made on the side of the scrotum and dilated so the doctor may work. Using this hole, the doctor pushes potential blood vessels and nerves aside to reach the vas. In a scalpel procedure, the chances of these to be cut is heightened.

From there, the ends of the vas are sealed. The puncture hole on the side of the scrotum contracts to 2-3mm at the end of the procedure, and heals quickly. There will be no need for sutures to close the entry site, as would be expected from a scalpel procedure.

And done! Your vasectomy procedure is over in less than an hour! Ready to try?
