What is a vasectomy for?
The vasectomy procedure is an option for men who have decided they no longer wish to have children. This one-off procedure offers a permanent contraception method by closing the sperm-carrying tubes, meaning a man’s semen can no longer be the cause of an unwanted pregnancy.
This peace of mind comes via a procedure that can be performed in 30 minutes. You will be able to drive yourself home afterwards as well due to there being no need for general anaesthetic. The process does not involve a scalpel and offers very fast recovery times.
Simply book a free consultation with Dr. Cashion and go ahead and have the procedure the same day if you wish. A phone consultation with Dr. Cashion is also available and you can book your appointment online at the various vasectomy clinic locations available throughout Australia.

Frequently Asked Questions
Quite the opposite, many men are surprised at how quick the recovery from a vasectomy procedure can be. At most you will feel a little sore for a few days after the procedure and need to limit the exuberance of your activities.
It will take around three months for your semen to clear the existing sperm before you are in the clear and at no risk of pregnancy. You will require a check to ensure that your vasectomy is at a point where it can be considered as a sufficient form of birth control.
Rare cases may experience some bruising or infection, however, Dr. Cashion is an expert vasectomy surgeon who minimises this risk. You can also assist in your healing process by wearing supportive underpants and ensuring you have sufficient rest. Be sure to avoid aspirin if you are struggling with any pain. Anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen is fine to use.
Heavy lifting, extreme movement and intense exercise should be avoided for about a week after your procedure, as should any job roles that involve similar actions. Office is fine as long as you do not sit down for long periods. Sporting activities such as bike riding and contact sports will need to be avoided for roughly 2-3 weeks.

While the vasectomy can be reversed, we do not recommend this as a consideration. The procedure can cost thousands of dollars and will not be covered by Medicare. Further to this, it is not guaranteed to work.
You should not undergo this procedure if you are not completely sure you wish to no longer have children.
Masturbation will be able to be resumed in a few days after your procedure with no issues, and full sexual function will be fine after roughly a week. There will be no change to erections, sex drive or ejaculation, the only difference being a lesser amount of ejaculate.
It is vital that you do not rely on the vasectomy as a safe form of birth control until around three months have passed or you have been given the all clear by our team. It is vital that your semen is free of existing sperm before you are no longer at risk of an unwanted pregnancy.
