A vasectomy is a safe and effective method for providing permanent contraception.
No-Scalpel: The no-scalpel vasectomy is a minimally invasive procedure performed primarily in the office and occasionally under anesthesia in the OR that is completed without a needle and scalpel.
Most men can return to work the next day, however, no heavy lifting for 1 week after the vasectomy. Sperm can remain in your semen for three to six months, or longer, after your vasectomy which makes it very important for you to use other forms of contraception until you are cleared by Dr. Prody.
Vasectomy patients may shower 24 hours after the surgery but afterward, keep the area of the incision clean and dry and use antibiotic ointment.
Patients should not engage in any sexual activity for one week. Ejaculation may cause discomfort in the groin and testicles until fully healed.
