Vasectomy is a quick in and out procedure

Key points about vasectomy:

  • Vasectomies are generally very safe, and complications are rare
  • Men who get a vasectomy say that they feel more free when having sex with their partner because they don’t have to worry about an unplanned pregnancy
  • Getting a vasectomy is a simple outpatient procedure.
  • Approximately half a million men get the procedure each year in the U.S.
  • They are even more popular in the time around March Madness, where men can recover while watching the NCAA Tournament.
  • Vasectomy does not affect semen production. Instead, it prevents sperm from being transported to mix with other seminal fluids. Men who have vasectomies still experience normal orgasms!
  • It’s possible to reverse a vasectomy if a man changes his mind later and decides to have children. However, reversal success rates can vary between 40-90%
  • Vasectomies do not affect a man’s sexual function, sex drive or sex life.
  • The procedure and recovery is usually painless, and men generally experience minimal, if any, side effects.

After the procedure:

  • Return to work in two to three days
  • Resume normal exercise in seven days
  • Start having sex again in seven days
  • Bruising and swelling should be gone within two weeks
