A vasectomy in Cornwall is a popular and well-accepted birth control procedure because it is quick, easy and not painful. Two other important reasons for men to undergo a vasectomy in Cornwall at the Ottawa Vasectomy and Infant Circumcision clinic are a short recovery period and no possibility of a pregnancy. Our doctors have years of experience in vasectomy procedures and use advanced, proven techniques for the best results.
Vasectomy – An Effective Procedure
“Is a vasectomy Cornwall foolproof?” is a frequent query from men who want to undergo this procedure. Our experience shows that it is nearly 100% effective in controlling birth. Men can rest assured that the chances of pregnancy are eliminated because the sperm is stopped from entering the semen. Yet, a chance of pregnancy exists in rare cases, when the divided vas deferens or tubes that transport sperm rejoin.
The Waiting Period
After the vasectomy procedure, there is a waiting period of three months. This time is required for the semen to be completely sperm-free. As pregnancy can occur during this period it is absolutely necessary to use other methods of birth control or pills to avoid this risk.
A Follow-Up is Required
After a gap of a few months, the patient needs to undergo a follow-up sperm count test. A sperm sample is submitted by the patient to the doctor for testing. There are two options. The sperm sample can be collected at our Cornwall clinic or by use of a special condom during sex. The doctor provides a report within a few days after examining the sample thoroughly for the presence of sperm.
If the doctor’s report indicates the absence of sperm in the semen sample, you can enjoy condom-free sex. However unprotected sex should be restricted to committed relationships where partners have been tested because casual sexual encounters carry the risk of STDs.
Is a Vasectomy in Cornwall Reversible?
Men undergoing a vasectomy often want to know about the success of vasectomy reversal. While it is reversible, the chances of its success aren’t very high. Even when the doctor joins the divided tubes, the sperm count may remain low. A person’s fertility level can reduce because the body develops antibodies against the sperm.
