The no-scalpel vasectomy is done through one small puncture instead of two incisions in the scrotum. This type of vasectomy takes less time to perform, causes less trauma, decreases the risk of complications after surgery, and makes recovery faster..
The cost of vasectomy is relatively low because it is a simple procedure almost always done without general anesthesia. It costs far less than the female surgery for sterilization, called tubal ligation, and it eliminates the ongoing cost of birth control pills or other contraception. Call your doctor’s office for pricing. Most health insurance does cover vasectomy..
No. Vasectomy does not change sex drive, potency, stamina, or strength. The procedure causes no perceptible change to the semen (although it will no longer contain sperm)..
Most men can go back to work in about 2-3 days, depending upon the physical difficulty of your job. Exercise and sex may usually be resumed in about 5 days. Please remember that you are not safe from pregnancy until your post-vasectomy specimen has been cleared by your doctor.
