Vasectomy Procedure and Services Clinic
What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is the name of a surgical procedure which makes men sterile and is the most efficient contraceptive method. Many Australian men are turning to vasectomies for an effective and safe method for family planning. In fact, around one in four men over 40 have had a vasectomy procedure. Vasectomies are now-routine procedures for men who no longer want more children or couples that don’t want children.
There are different techniques to perform a vasectomy. However, the ‘no scalpel’ method offers a less invasive procedure with quicker recovery and minimal discomfort. A vasectomy procedure at our clinic takes around 20 minutes because we practise the innovative and latest ‘no scalpel, open ended, fascial interposition’ technique. After the operation, sperm can no longer mix with semen.
At Circumcision Vasectomy Australia, you’re in safe hands. We want to make you feel comfortable and relaxed during every single step from consultation to after your procedure. Join over 30,000 men in Australia yearly that have had the snip and book a consultation today.

We provide all our patients access to our 24 hour hotline to address any concerns.
The vasectomy procedure
We perform simple, quick, minimally invasive vasectomy procedures with minimal discomfort.
We snip two tubes. These tubes are called vas deferens.
These tubes are the highway your sperm takes on it’s way to the outside world. We seal off one end of the tubes & bury them over two different layers in the scrotum. The procedure is then complete.
Sperm makes up only 5% of ejaculate fluid. Therefore, you will continue to produce ejaculate fluid. Just no sperm will make its way out with no impact on your sexual function.
No Scalpel Vasectomy
What to know about a ‘no scalpel’ vasectomy:
How does a vasectomy work?
What to expect after your vasectomy procedure
You should rest a few days after the procedure and do your best to avoid heavy lifting to minimise any pain and swelling.
Ensure you wait a few days until you can resume light physical activities, but it also advisable to wait up to a few weeks before doing any vigorous activity. This is to help the healing process while you have pain, swelling and possible bruising after your procedure. If you’re concerned about this, your doctor can give you advice on the specifics of your lifestyle.
After your vasectomy procedure, we’ll walk through complete aftercare with you and answer any more questions you have.
Our clinic is here to answer any questions you have. If you wish to discuss your options further, please call us at (03) 9007 2020 or book a consultation.

Still have questions? We've got the answers.
What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a procedure which renders a man infertile.
How is a vasectomy completed?
The vas deferens is the highway which sperm travel through to reach their end destination.
In a vasectomy the highway is snipped stopping the sperm from progressing into the outside world.
Is a vasectomy reversible?
Reversing a vasectomy is very difficult.
If you have any thoughts of reversing a vasectomy this procedure is not for you.
How long does a vasectomy take?

The vasectomy takes 20 minutes.

How do I prepare for my vasectomy?
Bring tight fitting underwear. This is important and we expect you to wear this over the next 48 hours. You can always change into a new tight fitting underwear after 24 hours.
Please make sure you shave your scrotum the day before the procedure. A hairy scrotum increases the risk of an infection.
When can I resume usual activities?
You can drive home on the day of the procedure.
No lifting more than 3kg for the first 24 hours post a vasectomy.
You can resume work within 2 days of having a vasectomy provided your work does not involve heavy lifting.
No vigorous heavy lifting for 4 weeks post a vasectomy.
No contact sport for 4 weeks.
Does a vasectomy hurt?
No, a vasectomy should not hurt.
We block the pain pathway to the brain by using a nerve block.
You may have discomfort after this block wears off in 12 hours. This can be managed with Paracetamol.
Can I ejaculate after a vasectomy?
Yes you can ejaculate after a vasectomy.
Less than 5% of ejaculate is made out of sperm.
Most ejaculate comes from the prostate gland & seminal vesicles.
We snip the vas deferens early in the highway and therefore you will not notice a difference in your ejaculate volume.
What does afterecare involve post a vasectomy?
When can I have sex post a vasectomy?
The procedure does not work immediately. The sperm can be hidden in the tubes past the sight at which we blocked their pathway to the outside world for 3 months.
You can commence having sex in 1 week but this must only be protected sex.
In 3 months we advise you have a sperm test to ensure the procedure is a success. Only then you can resume to have unprotected sex.
Our success rate is 99%. This is consistent with the medical industry and we pride ourselves in ensuring you obtain continuity of care by testing your sperm count in 3 months to make sure you are no longer fertile.
Do I need a referral?
No referral is required.
