Reproductive health  •  6 December 2023  • 2 min read



We know that sometimes the word “vasectomy” can cause fear among some men.

It’s a significant decision, and being well-informed is key. In this article, we’ll walk you through 7 Crucial Things You Must Know About Vasectomy Before Taking the Nip.

What is Vasectomy?

Let’s start with the basics. Sperms serve as one of the two building blocks necessary to create human life. So men produce sperm which travels down small tubes called vas deferens.

Vasectomy is a safe and effective form of permanent contraception that involves a simple surgical procedure to block or cut the vas deferens, preventing the release of sperm during ejaculation.

Minimal Discomfort (No-Needle, No-Scalpel Technique)

Thanks to advancements in medical technology, many vasectomies are now performed using the ‘no-needle, no-scalpel’ technique. This means less pain, a faster recovery, and fewer complications.

Is it reversible?

Vasectomy is intended to be permanent, but reversal is possible. However, it’s not always successful. Make sure you’re certain about your decision

Quick Recovery.

The recovery time is relatively short. Most men can return to work within a few days. It’s essential to follow post-operative instructions for a speedy recovery.


Vasectomy is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. However, it doesn’t protect against sexually transmitted infections

Your Ability to Enjoy Sex Won’t Be Affected

While a vasectomy will put an end to your ability to have children, that’s the only thing that it affects regarding sex. A vasectomy doesn’t affect any other part of your reproductive system, only the tubes that carry sperm.

Counseling and Support

Before getting a vasectomy, consider counseling or discussing it with your partner. It’s a significant decision that should be made together.

Should you get a vasectomy?

The choice is yours.
