What to Expect From Sacramento Scalpel Free Vasectomy
A scalpel free vasectomy procedure is now the bets in class preferred method for a vasectomy, and should be recommended by your male reproduction doctor or urologist. The reason it is preferred is because the procedure is less invasive, therefore less painful, requires a shorter recovery period, and therefore there is less likelihood of infections and other complications. Meanwhile it has the same high success rates of a scalpel vasectomy.
A vasectomy is carried out by diverting the sperm that usually goes from the testicles via the vas deferens ducts to the shaft for ejaculation. The sperm is no longer mixed with the semen and therefore there is no chance of fertilization following a successful vasectomy. Therefore a vasectomy is still the most reliable form of male contraception available.
During a scalpel free vasectomy the surgeon uses a tool called a surgical dissecting clamp to create a tiny opening in the scrotum, which then allows him to visualize the vas deferens ducts. The surgeon then dissects the ducts and repositions them through that hole, before closing the surgery. A suture or two may be used to secure the hole. Due to the size of the hole it is unlikely a visible scar will be there and the likelihood of infection over the next week is unlikely if hygiene standards recommended are adhered to.
A typical vasectomy surgery takes forty five minutes and is completed under local anesthetic. So following the surgery you should be able to return home or to work on your own if necessary. It is advisable to avoid strenuous activity for about four days after a scalpel free vasectomy, but normal activity can be resumed within a couple of days including sexual intercourse.
There could be some pain for the first few days after surgery and this can be managed with over the counter pain medication and an ice pack applied to the surgical site. You should find that the external wound is healed after a few days.
There may be some trace blood in the semen for a few weeks after surgery but this is normal as the ducts heal. You will still need to use another form of contraception for a few months after the surgery, until tests come back negative for sperm within your semen samples. Any intercourse without contraception before then may result in fertilization.
You should not expect a reduction in sexual desire or libido following vasectomy surgery, in fact some men report an increase in sexual potency following a vasectomy, but this is not proven!
