about a Vasectomy:
What is a Vasectomy?
The term vasectomy is used to describe a minor surgical operation
with the end result being the man is sterile. This operation
is quite safe and effective as a form of contraception and is used
worldwide. Vasectomy is a minor operation or procedure that can be
done in a doctors office as day-surgery. The result from
this operation will be that the man can still have sexual intercourse,
climax and the big difference is that no sperm is in the semen, thus
preventing the female partner from becoming pregnant. Some
men that have a Vasectomy change their minds and later have a Vasectomy
Reversal done. More information on that procedure can be found at
the page titled Vasectomy Reversal.
What is meant by "No-Scalpel" Vasectomy?
There are two main methods or procedures for a Vasectomy and the
No-Scalpel is one of them. This method or technique does not
require the use of a scalpel and thus only one or two tiny holes or
punctures in the skin will be observed. This technique usually
offers quick healing with less discomfort due to the lack of cutting
with a scalpel. The risk of bleeding and infection can also be
reduced with this operational method.
Time of Surgery and Recovery?
The No-Scalpel method is very quick in most circumstances and can be
performed in under 30 minutes. The total time in the doctor's
office will vary depending on the surgery schedule of the doctor, the
actual procedure and the payment and check out process upon completion.

the advice and instructions of your doctor for a full and quick

of semen free of sperm could take up to several weeks or months
depending on your ejaculations. Your sperm is still part of your
semen and it needs to flush. Your doctor should check and test
your semen to find out when it is safe to have unprotected sex again.

protections from pregnancy worldwide. Remember that there is a
small chance that a pregnancy could happen. Nothing is 100%
Where is the Sperm?
Where does the Sperm go? Well, the body will absorb the sperm
cells over a matter of time, even if you do not have a vasectomy.
Your testicles continue to produce sperm, in this case they will not
leave the body in the semen and the body will absorb them.
Will my sex life be affected?
Having a vasectomy does not stop nor affect your sex drive, it only
stops and blocks your sperm. You will still have erections,
orgasms, full ejaculations, without sperm. You will still enjoy
the sexual process. The procedure just stops the sperm from
leaving your penis during sex in your semen. It will not affect
your ability to perform or have sex. The big difference is that
you will not have to worry about your partner getting pregnant and your
hormones will continue in the current state.
