It is crucial to note that this is a life-changing procedure, though our team is always on hand to guide you through it and answer any questions that you may have. You should be fully aware of, and comfortable with, all aspects of this procedure before proceeding.

While vasectomies can be reversed, the actual reversal is an expensive process and it will not always guarantee the desired results. If thoughts of a reversal are on your mind, or you are planning this procedure with that as a possible fallback plan in the future, you may want to reconsider your options.

It is best to think of this procedure as a permanent contraception method. Reversals will not be covered by Medicare and can cost upwards of $5000, so are not an ideal plan B.

Yes, operating a vehicle post-procedure is allowed and safe and there is no need for you to bring a second person to drive after the procedure unless you’d feel more comfortable that way.
The act of undergoing a vasectomy with Dr Cashion in itself reduces the rate of complication due to his in-depth skillset. All surgical procedures however, carry an element of risk. Our team will provide you with a consent form that will detail any relevant risks, but the most prominent would be bruising or mild pain and swelling, both of which will usually disappear after roughly one week.
They are not. This is a very important element to note about the vasectomy procedure. The process does not work immediately and other forms of contraception must still be used until you have been told it is safe to proceed without them. Consider yourself fertile until the point that our team has confirmed that your procedure has been successful. We will run a semen analysis three-months post-procedure to confirm that you are completely sterile. The procedure does not offer an instant effect, as there may still be some remaining semen within your tubes. Your body needs time to “clean out the pipes” before you can be considered a zero-risk of causing pregnancy.
For the work side of things, the answer depends on the type of work you do. If you are in a position that involves manual labour, you may require some time off as it is vital that no heavy objects are lifted for around one-week post-procedure (this includes training at the gym). If you work in an office, you can resume work immediately. A medical certificate can be provided if you require some time off. Sexual activity can be resumed after about one week, however it is recommended that you take things slow, to begin with. It is vitally important to remember the necessary use of other forms of contraception during this time until we have given you the all-clear.
