What exactly is a vasectomy?
Many men reach a point in their lives where the vasectomy procedure is an ideal form of sterilisation which offers a permanent contraception method. This simple surgical procedure closes the sperm-carrying tubes in the male anatomy meaning a man’s semen no longer carries sperm or presents the risk of unwanted pregnancy.
The procedure itself can be performed in 30 minutes and allows you to drive yourself home afterwards as it does not require a general anaesthetic. It is a no-scalpel, gentle technique that works into most schedules due to the fast recovery times.
The whole process can happen quite quickly as you have the option of a consultation and procedure within 48 hours. If better suited, you can also have a phone consultation with Dr. Matthew Valentine at no cost and use our online bookings platform to select the most relevant vasectomy clinic locations in Australia to you.
