If you’re like most men who are finished having children (or want none at all), you’ve probably at least considered getting a vasectomy. After all, vasectomies are very reliable, simple, inexpensive, and can even be sex-life-changing . . . in a good way, of course. So why haven’t you scheduled your vasectomy?
The answer may be anxiety.
The idea of surgery—even minor surgery—can be upsetting. What if there’s a problem? Will it hurt? That’s why the no-scalpel vasectomy is such an exciting option. The no-scalpel vasectomy is easy to explain. There used to be just one way to do a vasectomy. It required two separate incisions in the scrotum, plus stitches to close the wounds. The no-scalpel vasectomy is different. It requires just one small puncture to access the vas deferens (which carries sperm), then snip, clip, and done. No incision and no stitches! You’ll be given a local anesthetic beforehand, and because there’s no incision, the recovery period is shorter and easier, with less pain and fewer complications. The no-scalpel vasectomy is simply a smoother, better way to get a vasectomy.
