How It Works

Dr Cashion discusses vasectomies; how they work and the recovery process, to help you make an informed decision if a vasectomy is right for you

The operation takes about 15 minutes and goes like this:

  • A local anaesthetic is injected into the area using a fine needle, that feels no worse than a flu injection or dentist’s needle.
  • A tiny hole is made in the scrotum.
  • The vas deferens is divided and the testicular end of the tube is left open – This helps prevent congestion in the testis and therefore reduces the risk of  pain or post vasectomy syndrome.
  • A tiny layer of tissue is placed between the two ends of the vas to stop them re-joining.
  • The same procedure is performed on the other side but through the same hole.
  • The skin edge is clipped together without stitches.
  • Dressing is applied
