Whether it’s that you and your partner feel like your family is complete and you have enough children, or you are childless and want to stay that way, we have a permanent solution for you: our vasectomy procedure in Houston.
What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a permanent form of male birth control in which a man’s vas deferens (sperm duct)—which connects his epididymis to his urethra—are cut and sealed.
With the vas deferens disconnection, the sperm never makes it to the epididymis and therefore is not present in the ejaculate.
During our minimally-invasive, no-scalpel vasectomy procedure (also known as a keyhole vasectomy), discomfort and pain will be very minimal; you should only feel the sting of the local anesthetic.
Minor out-patient surgery
Around 30 minutes in-office
You should be able to return to work a few days after surgery unless you have a strenuous job or physical labor. Your doctor will discuss when you are able to return to physical labor.
What It Treats
Male birth control
How Vasectomies Work
Recovery is relatively smooth and painless. Take it easy for 3 days after your procedure and refrain from sex, ejaculation, and heavy exercise for 1 week. If you find it necessary, ice the area and take anti-inflammatories for discomfort and inflammation.
We usually perform this procedure on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday so you can take the weekend to fully recover.
Unless your job involves strenuous activity/physical labor, you will be able to return to work 3 days after your vasectomy procedure in Houston.
