The vasectomy procedure provides almost zero risk of possible pregnancy
What can a vasectomy do for me?
The vasectomy procedure creates a permanent method of contraception by closing the sperm-carrying tubes, removing any chance of pregnancy. This procedure is performed quickly (in under 30 minutes), and it does not require a general anaesthetic.
When it comes to having a vasectomy, North Shore men can trust Dr. Cashion, who performs over 1500 vasectomies a year. His vasectomy pricing is very affordable, and the easy consultation process means you can have your consultation via our clinic, or over the phone, making the process as easy and painless as possible. Online bookings are also available and if you are outside of Sydney, Dr. Cashion performs this procedure at a range of locations around Australia.

Yes, we recommend that you read our “Preparing for your Vasectomy” page for all of the information you need to ensure you are ready for this life-changing procedure. Our team is always on hand to answer any questions that you may have to ensure that you are completely comfortable with this procedure.
Vasectomies can be reversed, however the reversal is an expensive process that does not always yield the results that you desire. If you enter this procedure thinking that you may have a means of reversing it later, you may want to re-consider your options of this otherwise permanent contraception method, as it will help ensure that you are definitely ready to undergo it. Reversals are not covered by Medicare and can often cost upwards of $5000.

Dr. Cashion’s experience means a reduced rate of complication, but all surgical procedures carry an element of risk. Your consent form will detail all of the relevant risks, the most prominent of which can be:
- Bruising that will usually disappear after about a week
- Mild pain and swelling that will decrease a few days after your procedure.
A less common complication can include a large bruise within the scrotum, however you can reduce your chances of this by avoiding any lifting of heavy objects in the days after your procedure. If this is necessary for the type of work you do, you will require some time off work.
It is very important to note that the vasectomy procedure does not work immediately. You must continue to use other forms of contraception and consider yourself fertile until our team has confirmed to you that your procedure is successful and you are no longer at risk.
This confirmation will involve a semen analysis at the three-month mark to confirm that you are sterile. The reason for this is that it is possible for some remaining semen to exist within the tubes post procedure; which will require time for your body to “clean out the pipes” to confirm the risk of pregnancy is nil.
The answer to this question really depends on the type of work you do. If your work involves manual labour, it is vital that you do not lift anything heavy for the first week.
If, on the other hand, you work in an office, you can often go straight back to work. A medical certificate can be provided by our team if you require one to stay home longer.
In most cases it is fine to resume sexual activity after about one week. This can differ based on your individual healing ability, so we recommend taking it slow, and it is vitally important to remember to continue other forms of contraception until we have given you the all-clear.
