A Vasectomy in Ottawa is widely accepted as an effective birth control method. It is a routine kind of surgery that doctors can do in their office or hospital. It is a short procedure that allows the patient to go home the same day and is very simple because it just blocks sperm-carrying tubes in the scrotum, effectively preventing pregnancy.
Different Types Of Vasectomies
You can opt to undergo a vasectomy by the traditional incision method or our specialized Ottawa no-scalpel vasectomy method (no cut involved). The latter presents a lower risk of infection and very little possibility of complications. In fact, it is also a relatively pain-free procedure that can be carried out within 20 minutes.
Men prefer to undergo vasectomies in Ottawa as a permanent birth control solution. The procedure is reversible, but the reversal may not always be successful. Before taking a final decision, think carefully about this aspect. If you feel that you may want a child at a future date, this may not be the right birth control option for you.
A vasectomy cannot be a hurried decision. It has to be a well-informed and well-considered one. If you have decided to limit your final family size to the number of children you currently have, a vasectomy is an effective birth control method for you. Many people believe that vasectomy is painful. Knowing how the procedure works is the best way to remove these fears.
Ottawa Vasectomy- A Simple Procedure
Our doctors perform no-cut, non-invasive vasectomies in Ottawa and Gatineau. It is a short and simple procedure and pain is minimal. The patient feels a small poke when local anesthesia is administered before the procedure. It numbs the area and no pain is felt during the procedure except for some minor discomfort.
Precautions To Observe
As the anesthesia wears off and the numbness reduces, you may experience slight pain and discomfort. You will be prescribed over the counter medicines and asked to apply ice packs to the scrotum area to reduce the pain. Wear a jock strap or tighter underwear to support the scrotum and limit its movement during the recovery period. Avoid lifting heavy items during this time- this will speed up your recovery.
