What is Vasectomy
The vasectomy procedure is a form of male sterilisation that creates a permanent method of contraception via a surgical procedure. By closing the sperm-carrying tubes, sperm is no longer able to access the semen meaning there are no chances of possible pregnancy.
The vasectomy procedure is quick and able to be performed in under 30 minutes and does not require a general anaesthetic. Dr Cashion performs over 2000 vasectomies a year with a gentle technique that allows for a fast recovery and return to work all at an affordable price.
You will be able to have your consultation and the procedure within 48 hours in our clinic or speak to Dr Cashion for a free phone consultation. Online bookings are also available for a range of vasectomy clinic locations around Australia.

Frequently Asked Questions
Recovery after the vasectomy procedure is very simple. You may feel a little sore; however this will only last for a few days. It will take around three months for your semen to become clear of sperm, at which point you will no longer require any birth control methods during intercourse.
There can be risks of bruising or infection; however these are quite low and can be minimised by resting and wearing underpants that provide ample support.
We recommend that you avoid aspirin as well as heavy lifting or extreme movement for a week after the vasectomy. Desk-based roles, however, should be able to be resumed the day after having your vasectomy.
It would also be best to avoid sitting for long periods, bike riding, and contact sports for around 2-3 weeks.
For those who are no longer wanting to have children, the vasectomy procedure provides peace of mind for both men and women, creating almost zero risk of possible pregnancy.

While vasectomies can be reversed, we strongly recommend you do not undergo this procedure if you think there is a chance you’ll want a reversal. Vasectomies should be thought of as permanent contraception.
Reversals are very expensive, not covered by Medicare, and can not be guaranteed to work.
You will be able to masturbate comfortably a few days after your procedure, and full sexual functions will be able to be resumed after roughly a week. There will be no change to erections, desire, or ejaculation post-procedure.
You may notice a slight difference in the volume of ejaculate, but for most men, their sex life improves post-vasectomy due to zero almost risk of pregnancy or requirement of contraception.
It is vital, however, that you do not rely on your vasectomy as a form of birth control until we have confirmed it is safe to do so, roughly around the three months month mark post-procedure. This time is required to flush the sperm from your semen.
The vasectomy procedure performed by Dr. Cashion is exceptionally safe, and it has been proven that the procedure creates no increased risks of long term complications such as cancer.
