Important Question to Ask Before Vasectomy | Minnesota

The practice of vasectomy was pioneered in 1950, but for many years the vasectomy procedure was used sparingly; many men were uncomfortable with the idea of elective surgery on their sexual organs. But today, vasectomy is becoming more frequent among men in Minnesota, and men are more comfortable with the procedure as education about vasectomy becomes more widely available online. Men realize that the idea that vasectomy will lower sex drive or libido is a myth; The two vas deferens are cut in the vasectomy, preventing any sperm from exiting the body through the penis. All other functions of the testes are still intact. Even sperm is still produced, but it is absorbed by the body.

The most popular vasectomy technique – no stitch, no scalpel vasectomy – requires work off for less than 3 days compared that of 1-2 weeks with traditional vasectomy, and it is also much less invasive than tubal litigation on women.

No scalpel vasectomy is a affordable, reliable form of birth control that is more practical than other permanent alternatives in Minnesota. But men must know that sterilization is not immediate after vasectomy. Even after the vas deferensare cut, there is still sperm lingering in your system that can be present in semen. It will take several months before sterility is complete. You should use birth control until your physician determines you are completely sterile.

Still, vasectomies are permanent, so it is important to be informed before you decide to get one. There is the most important question one must consider:

    • Do I want any more children in the future?

Vasectomies are more or less permanent. Once the procedure is done, it’s done. It is possible to have vasectomies reversed, but to do so is prohibitively expensive, unreliable, not to mention that sperm production will never be the same as it was before. Do not getting vasectomies if you are not absolutely sure that you want it, and do not assume you can reverse it.
