A vasectomy is a highly effective, safe and permanent form of birth control, resulting in a man’s sperm no longer being able to fertilize an egg. Before considering this procedure, it is important that the topic is thoroughly discussed and you’re absolutely sure that you don’t want to have children in the future. The procedure is done in our office and is relatively quick. Afterward, you can expect some pain, swelling and possibly bruising around the area of the surgery, which should fully dissipate after about 2 weeks.
If you’re considering a vasectomy, please call one of our clinic locations so that we can provide additional details about the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
