A vasectomy is a safe and effective in office procedure to provide permanent male fertility control. The procedure involves severing and closing the vas deferens tube that is responsible for carrying sperm from the testicles to the seminal stream. Undergoing a vasectomy will not change hormone production or affect your sexual function.
Risk Factors of Vasectomy
Surgical risks are very low and may include:
- Bleeding, swelling and bruising immediately after surgery
- Incision site infection
- Inflammation of the vas deferens
