The minor surgery that blocks the sperm to reach the semen excreted or ejaculated from the penis is called vasectomy. The semen will still be there but the sperm is no longer present. After the procedure, the testes will still make sperm but already soaked up from the body. Because of the high birth rate, several men already choose to undergo a vasectomy as effective birth control.

The Process

The process is usually performed in the office or clinic of a urologist. Aside from that, it can also be done in a hospital or center. It is advisable that the patient is sedated or asleep during the process.

In the surgery room, the scrotal part will be shaved and washed using an antiseptic solution. Local anesthesia will be injected in order for the area to be numb. Despite the numbness, the sense of touch, tension, and movement will still be felt.


A small risk of bleeding to the scrotum may occur right after the surgery. If the scrotum got bigger or has turned to be very painful, the urologist must be notified right away.

    This is amazing writing with some valuable points. Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilization or permanent contraception. During the procedure, the male vas deferens are cut and tied or sealed so as to prevent sperm from entering into the urethra and thereby prevent fertilization of a female through sexual intercourse. Thank you so much and keep posting things like this.

    Vasectomy may be the safest and one of the most effective kind of birth control. I was aware of this as an efficient method of birth control, but I was not aware of the process. This article has very clearly explained each and every detail. But, I think one should not go for a vasectomy unless one is absolutely sure that he doesn’t want to have children in the future.

    It’s also important to note that vasectomy isn’t 100% effective, I mean it can happen that a man undergoes the process and still an have children, it happens rarely but t’s just something to have in mind.
