When you and your partner have come to the realization that you are happy with the size of your family and you have no interest in fathering any future children, you may consider getting a vasectomy. This one little word can be very scary for some men, however, with gentle guidance and preparation, it will be in the past before you know it.
Prior to getting a vasectomy, it is important that you meet with the surgeon. At this time, you can discuss any concerns that you have and the surgeon will also go over the different options that you have.
Many men have a fear that after getting a vasectomy, they will not be able to “perform” as well as they did before. However, following the procedure the majority of men find that sex is more enjoyable for them and their partner because the fear of getting pregnant is reduced. They are then able to be more spontaneous and enjoy the entire experience much more.
Vasectomies of the past were much more invasive than recent procedures. There are now options for which way a surgeon feels is the best. There are now opportunities for a vasectomy to be done without an incision. This method allows for a single puncture to be done, which allows the surgeon to reach the tubes and either tie them off or cauterize them. By doing this, there is no need for stitches and the healing time is much quicker.
You will need to have someone take you for your procedure as you will not be able to drive for a few days after the procedure. Your surgeon will give you a local anesthetic and the entire procedure is very quick. Once the procedure is done, your surgeon will have you rest at the office prior to leaving in order to make sure there are no complications. Once you are cleared to leave it is important to rest for a few days to a week once you get home. After this time, most men find that the pain and discomfort are gone and they are able to resume normal activities.
While the process of getting a vasectomy can be daunting, it is meant to be a permanent form of birth control and usually comes with very minimal risk. Finding the surgeon that you feel most comfortable with, will make the entire process much more bearable. Visit http://grandavenuesurgicalcenter.com/about.html for more information.
