Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilization and permanent contraception. During the procedure the male vas deferens are cut and tied or sealed to prevent sperm from entering into the urethra and thereby prevent fertilization of a female through sexual intercourse.
In the 48 hours before having a no-scalpel vasectomy, avoid aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Having these medications in your system before any surgery can increase your chances of bleeding and other complications.
A vasectomy is an outpatient procedure. This means you can go home the same day as the surgery.
Your doctor will prescribe you some painkillers and provide some instructions on hygiene and basic wound care during the recovery.
