What is a vasectomy and why is it done?
Vasectomy is a method of permanent contraception (sterilization) reserved for men. This is a contraceptive surgical procedure also called a deferentectomy. To obtain this result, the urologist performs surgery in which he cuts the vas deferens, present at the level of the scrotum, and seals it. This prevents the sperm produced by the testicles from mixing with the seminal fluid produced by the prostate and released with ejaculation. The equivalent procedure for women, called tubal ligation, is more dangerous and less effective than a vasectomy. It is a minor surgery, simple, safe and very effective.
Why is this operation done?
Vasectomy can be performed for various reasons: it can be requested by people who no longer want to have children, or it can represent a way, adopted by some countries, to control births. There are two types of surgical procedures: traditional vasectomy and no-scalpel vasectomy.Like any surgery, complications can arise but are very rare. People think of vasectomy as a permanent way to prevent pregnancy, but there is a way to reverse its effects with a specific operation. However, reversal surgery is complicated and often ineffective, even when no complications occur. Therefore, those who choose to undergo this operation must know all the details of the operation, from the advantages to the disadvantages. Vasectomy is a contraceptive method that is particularly suitable for those who have decided not to have any more children (or not to have any) at a certain point in their life. The reasons can vary greatly from person to person.
The operation is very practiced, as it is safe and with an almost 100% probability of success. Only one operation in every 2000 fails to provide the desired results

False myths to dispel about the operation!
Many men fear that vasectomy will reduce their libido and sexual performance or predispose them to some serious diseases (cancer and heart disease). Science has proven that these are unfounded fears, due to disinformation. Fears, devoid of any scientific basis, argue that vasectomy causes:
- Reduced sexual performance. Vasectomy does not reduce libido or masculinity; testosterone levels, erection and ejaculation are completely normal. The only difference is that semen does not contain sperm. Therefore, it cannot be defined as semen
- Permanent damage to the genital structures. Vasectomy surgery rarely causes permanent, irreparable damage to the penis, testicles, or other parts of the male genital system. The success rate of the operation is almost 100%..
- There is NOT an increased risk of getting cancer. Especially in the past, some believed that vasectomy promoted testicular or prostate cancer. There is no scientific evidence in favor of this thesis.
There is NOT an risk of developing heart disease. The same is true for prostate and testicular cancers; there is no scientific link between these and vasectomy.
- You cause severe, sharp pain. Sharp and very intense pain is really a sporadic occurrence. The pain is usually mild and disappears within a few days.
- Chronic testicular pain.
How do you prepare for a vasectomy?
Anyone who has decided to undergo a vasectomy must know what they are getting into. Before the surgery, the urologist will talk to the patient and ask him several times if he is sure of his decision.
The highlights of the comparison are:
- The permanence of the effects, this is to be sure that the choice to undergo a vasectomy may have been rash or based on poor information. There are those who believe that reversal surgery is a standard practice and easy to perform and, as we have written, this is not the case.
- Does the partner agree? The person may also agree but have second thoughts at the time of the operation. Of course, nothing prevents an individual from having a vasectomy, even if the partner disagrees; the decision rests solely with the patient. However, it is always good to consider this aspect from the point of view of the existing relationship.
- Is the patient aware of other existing contraceptive methods, even non-permanent ones? In fact, there are alternative solutions that are sufficiently effective but not permanent.
- Vasectomy is still a surgical procedure and, as such, can lead to complications.
Before performing the vasectomy
The doctor provides personalized instructions for each patient in order to obtain the success of the intervention. Firstly, it prohibits taking aspirin and any other drugs with a similar action (warfarin, heparin, etc.). These treatments must be stopped in time as the pharmacological effects last at least a week. The patient will then be asked to:
- Shave the pubic area to be operated on so that washing is more accessible and the risk of infection is lower.
- Wear tight-fitting underpants (also called containment panties) or tight-fitting shorts, to block movement of the scrotum and minimize swelling.
- Have a relative accompany you on the day of the operation, as sitting down to drive could compress the operated area.

How does the surgery take place?
Vasectomy is a quick and not particularly painful surgery, usually performed under local anesthesia. During the operation, the urologist cuts and blocks (the technical term for this maneuver is ligature) the vas deferens, interrupting any path that leads the spermatozoa to union with the seminal fluid. Generally the operation is outpatient and hospitalization is not foreseen; the discharge takes place on the same day of the procedure. One is the traditional, also called a conventional vasectomy, and the other is one where no scalpel is used, known as the Anglo-Saxon term “no-scalpel vasectomy” or “no-scalpel vasectomy”.
Types of anesthesia
Anesthesia is, in most cases, local. Then, the scrotum and testicles, which are the parts that will be operated on, are rendered numb. The pain felt is minimal and is more like a nuisance. When is total anesthesia used? If during the preoperative examinations the patient claims to be allergic to local anesthetics or has other complications, total anesthesia is chosen. During total anesthesia, anesthetic drugs are administered before and during the entire duration of the operation, which renders the operated person completely unconscious. Once the total or anesthesia has been performed, the urologist makes two small incisions (about 1 cm) to the right and left of the scrotum. These incisions represent access routes to the vas deferens with the scalpel. Once the incision has been made, part of the canals are removed and the so-called ligation of the vas deferens, or diathermy, is performed. At the end of the operation, the incisions are closed with absorbable sutures.
