in Boston, MA

Vasectomy, also known as male sterilization, is an operation. It is intended to safely and permanently protect against pregnancy, so it is very effective.

What is a Vasectomy? Boston, MA 

A vasectomy is essentially a procedure conducted by a doctor in a clinic, office or hospital. The end result is that sperm will not be able to leave your body or induce conception, due to the cutting of the tube that carries it.  You can usually go home the same day, as the process is very simple. And the prevention rate of abortion–at almost 100%–is extremely effective.

 

The incision approach and no-scalpel (no-cut) procedure make two different forms of vasectomies. The risk of infection is a lot lower in the no-cut method and the recovery time is a lot smaller.

 

Vasectomies should be permanent— so they can't normally be undone. You should have a vasectomy only if you are 100% sure that for the remainder of your life you don't want to get someone pregnant.

The name of the channels in the scrotum that are cut during the surgery (vas deferens) was used to generate the word "vasectomy".

 

A vasectomy is one of the most effective methods because it is irreversible, and there's no such problem as not remembering to use it or messing it up. This stops you from getting anyone pregnant for the rest of your life. Once the doctor tells you that your semen no longer contains sperm, then you are pretty much good to go — you don't need any other preventive measure. Vasectomies are the kind of birth control that you get once and forget completely.

 

The cut-off ends of your vas deferens will still have a slim chance of growing back together after a vasectomy. But it's very unusual.

Will a vasectomy protect you from contacting STDs? Boston, MA

You and your spouse will not be shielded from sexually transmitted infections by a vasectomy. Even if it does not contain sperm, semen or cum can still convey STDs. For some types of STDs, skin-to-skin touch is everything you need to get them from others.

 

Use condoms to reduce your chances of STD contraction.

 

Vasectomies for most people are very safe, but there are risks attached to every medical procedure. Vasectomies are supposed to be permanent, so they can not normally be undone.

Our Three step process

Step 1

Make an appointment for your initial consultation visit.  You can call or register online.

 

If you are ready, you may also have your vasectomy the same day.   (Note: some insurances require a wait period between consultation and getting the procedure.)

Step 2

Get the vasectomy.  It usually takes less than 15 minutes using our quick no-scalpel method.

That day, relax with your legs up.  Rest for 1-2 days.  Wait a week for any really strenuous activity.

Step 3

Follow up: 2-3 months after your vasectomy drop off a semen sample. 

You won't notice a difference, so we'll check for any sperm under a microscope to make sure you have the all clear!

Usually, it is safe to have a vasectomy. But there can be some risks, like all medical procedures. The most common ones are temporary pain, infection and bruising. Your doctor may give you an antibiotic to treat the infection.

If you just got a vasectomy and are having any of these symptoms, call your doctor:

 

- Running a fever at 100 ° F.

 

- Pus and blood from where the scrotum was cut.

 

- A lot of discomfort and swelling in the testicular and scrotum region.

 

Some common vasectomy related complications involve:

 

- Bleeding where the incision was made (but this usually stops by itself).

 

- Blood below the skin surface that can swell and bruise (called hematoma). Usually, it stops by itself. Using over -       the-counter pain killers can help, as well as applying ice packs on the bleeding area.

 

- Swelling as a result of sperm leakage from your vas deferens (known as Spermatic Granuloma). This usually stops     by itself, but sometimes, it may need to be drained by a doctor.

 

- If there is occasional acute pain and irritation, you should take pain relief from the start and wear comfortable         clothing that doesn't cause the testes to hang up. It's not very normal, although possible, for there to be long-term     pain. If it comes to this, discuss possible treatment with a doctor or nurse.

- Although seldomly, it does happen that the cut ends of the vas          deferens join back together, meaning that pregnancy can occur.
