How do we perform a vasectomy?
Our vasectomy services in Melbourne specialise in the no scalpel, open ended method. In this procedure, our doctors snip two tubes known as the vas deferens. One of the ends are sealed and we bury them over two layers in the scrotum.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will the vasectomy work right away?
No, you won’t be sterile immediately, so you will need to use another method of contraception until then. For many, it can take a minimum of 2-6 months to clear the tubes of sperm completely. Your vasectomy doctor will get you to do a semen sample to test if any more sperm are in your semen 3 months after your procedure. Once you get the all clear, you no longer need to use contraception.
What are the types of vasectomy?
We specialise in the ‘no-scalpel open ended’ vasectomy service at our clinic in Melbourne. This technique uses a clamp with pointed ends instead of using a scalpel to cut the skin No stitches are required on the skin in this procedure, so there’s less bruising, discomfort, and less chance of infection.
What are the risks of having a vasectomy?
Our no-scalpel vasectomy for Melbourne men is minimally invasive and faster healing. Getting a vasectomy is safe, but just like all surgeries, there is a small risk of infection or significant bleeding (1-2%). There is a small risk of long-term pain or discomfort in the scrotum or have pain with ejaculation.
How does recovery take place?
A vasectomy at our clinic will mean you’ll be on the mend withing a few days. You might experience bruising, discomfort, and infection, but these are generally mild. You can minimise these by resting and wearing supportive underwear. You should try and avoid bike riding and contact sports for 4 weeks, but you can do light physical activity 1 week out from your visit to the vasectomy clinic.
Does a vasectomy affect sexual function?
Getting the snip does not change your sex drive or function! This is because vasectomy services don’t influence testosterone or semen production – contrary to many Melbournian men’s beliefs. Interestingly, some vasectomy doctors have found that men report better erections and orgasms, with a higher sex drive.
After my vasectomy where do the sperm go?
Your vas deferens is like your sperm’s road to the outside world. When it’s cut at a vasectomy clinic, the sperm can’t move out of this tube and becomes absorbed naturally by your body.
