Are there risks involved with a Vasectomy?

Men undergoing a Vasectomy will not see a change in their hormone levels. Therefore, a Vasectomy will not change a man's sexual desire. A man will still have normal ejaculation (or the man will still produce semen during intercourse). But, following a Vasectomy, the semen will no longer have sperm present in it making the patient safe to have intercourse without pregnancy.

Some of the more common risks of a Vasectomy include bleeding which can cause a hematoma (large blood clot in the scrotum) and infection of the testicles. These risks are rare. Your doctor will discuss other risks of undergoing a Vasectomy at the time of your consultation.

What kind of follow-up will there be after the Vasectomy?

We recommend that men continue birth control following the Vasectomy for 3 months. At 3 months, we will obtain a semen analysis looking for any remaining sperm. If no sperm are identified, you may discontinue birth control at that time. The risk of continued fertility at this point is extremely rare. Some men may choose to have a second semen analysis again at 4 months if they are anxious about their results.
