Vasectomy Doctor Melbourne

Circumcision Vasectomy Australia

Best Clinic For Vasectomy Procedure

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.

Circumcision Vasectomy Australia

About the procedure

The procedure involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, which are the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. This procedure is performed as a form of male contraception, designed to prevent the release of sperm during ejaculation.

A vasectomy is typically performed under local anaesthesia and can be completed within 20 minutes. After the surgery, patients may experience some mild discomfort, swelling, or bruising, but these symptoms generally subside within a few days. The mild discomfort is usually settled with paracetamol. You can be back at work within 2 days.

It is important to note that while a vasectomy is considered a permanent form of contraception, it will take 3 months to obtain sterility. You will be required to do a semen analysis in 3 months to obtain clearance for sterility. It is crucial to use alternative birth control methods until the absence of sperm is confirmed by our staff.

In addition to this, it is important to understand that a vasectomy does not protect you against STIs. Therefore, if you have more than one sexual partner, it is important to use condoms despite having a successful vasectomy.

Vasectomy Fees

What will it cost?

We are dedicated to providing affordable vasectomy. We offer vasectomy at affordable prices under local anaesthetic and nerve block. This eliminates the cost of paying for an anaesthetist, anaesthetic drugs, hospital bed and surgical theatre room.

Why have a Vasectomy?

Benefits of a vasectomy

Vasectomy is the most effective form of contraception, and also the cheapest in the long run. It is a permanent contraception with low risk of complications, and no impact on a man’s hormones or sexual functioning.

Vasectomy gives a man the opportunity to demonstrate to his female partner a shared responsibility to family planning.

24 hour aftercare

Our Method

No-scalpel, fascial interposition, open-ended vasectomy

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.

Nerve Block

Anaesthesia for a vasectomy

We use a nerve block during a vasectomy procedure, which targets the nerve that puts the vas deferens to sleep.

This provides pain relief for up to 12 hours and allows you to drive to and from our clinic yourself.

What to expect

Pre and Post-Op Care

  • Pre-op prep

  • Post-op care

  • 3 month sperm test

Before the operation

  • Shave off all pubic hair on the scrotum. This minimises the risk of infection.
  • Wear tight underwear. This is to minimise post-operative swelling.
  • Do not take any anti-inflammatories or fish oil within 7 days pre-vasectomy. This includes Aspirin, Diclofenac and Ibuprofen. These drugs thin out the blood and can make the procedure more difficult.

After the operation

  • You must have complete rest on the day of the surgery.
  • You can shower 24 hours after the procedure but keep the wound as dry as possible.
  • You will need to have a sperm test in 3 months. Before then, you must avoid unprotected sexual intercourse.
  • After your procedure you may notice light spotting on the first day and some swelling and discomfort for a week or so. Any pain or discomfort you experience during your vasectomy recovery can be treated with pain killers. Take Paracetamol for pain relief. Only use ibuprofen after 1 week if necessary. Apply cold packs to the scrotum the first few days after your vasectomy.
  • It is important you wear tight underwear in the first few days after your vasectomy.
  • Depending on the type of work you do, you can return to work two days after the procedure. This is the case for office workers. If your job involves reaching, stretching or any other physical exertion you may request to be put on light duties for one week. If this is not possible, you will need to take the week off. We can provide you with a medical certificate.
  • Avoid contact sports, running, cycling or heavy lifting for 4 weeks.
  • Abstain from sex and masturbation for the first week after the vasectomy. Abstain from vigorous sex for 2 weeks.
  • Once you are physically able to have sex use other forms of contraception such as condoms until your 3 months ejaculate test proves you to be infertile. Once proven to be infertile you may engage in unprotected sex.
  • It’s important to remember that your vasectomy won’t protect you from any sexually transmitted infections (STI). In situations where there may be a risk of acquiring an STI please use a condom.
  • Your vasectomy will not impact your sexual performance or ability to ejaculate.

3 month sperm test

  • Post a vasectomy you are not considered sterile until you complete your semen analysis.
  • This must be completed 3 months post a vasectomy.
  • On the day of your vasectomy you will be given a referral and instructions on how to have your semen analysed.
  • Once you have done this, we will receive a report from the pathology lab.
  • We will then contact you and ask you to book a quick phone consult with our doctor to discuss your results.
  • You are deemed sterile only after our doctors have cleared you.

Frequently asked questions

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 consultation takes 10 minutes.

The vasectomy takes 20 minutes.

We keep you a further 15 minutes in the clinic post a vasectomy to make sure you are okay.

In total, expect to spend 45 minutes with us.

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 10kg 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 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 aftercare involve post a vasectomy?

Aftercare is simple. Our doctors will go through aftercare with you on the day of the procedure.

In addition to this,  we provide all our patients access to our 24 hour hotline to address any concerns.

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.

What is the cost of a vasectomy?

This depends on whether you have access to Medicare. Please visit our cost page to see how much a vasectomy will cost you.

Do I need a referral?

No referral is required.
