Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilisation and/or permanent birth control.
During the procedure, the male vasa deferentia are severed and then tied/sealed in a manner so as to prevent sperm from entering into the seminal stream (ejaculate) and thereby prevent fertilisation from occurring. A Vasectomy is performed in the Femplus Clinic in Roselawn Road Dublin. The procedure is not complicated and with the simplicity of the surgery, a vasectomy usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
After a short recovery at the doctor’s office (usually less than an hour), the patient is sent home to rest. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, many vasectomy patients find that they can resume their typical sexual behavior within a week, and do so with little or no discomfort.
Because the procedure is considered a permanent method of birth control and is not easily reversed, men are always advised to consider how the long-term outcome of a vasectomy might affect them both emotionally and physically. The procedure is not often encouraged for young single men as their chances for biological parenthood are thereby more or less permanently reduced to almost zero by it.
