Many men want to maintain a good sex life without having to worry about causing accidental pregnancies. Despite this, they hesitate to consider getting a vasectomy and are intimidated by the procedure. At the Ottawa Vasectomy and Infant Circumcision clinic, we do our best to make men comfortable and explain the procedure to them in detail. Vasectomy has a number of great benefits and some of these benefits are mentioned below:
An Ottawa vasectomy is a highly effective procedure with a good success rate and a 1 in 2,000 chance of pregnancy. If your post-procedure sperm count is zero, you will never have to worry about getting your partner pregnant. The only other contraceptive option that has similar success rate is tubal ligation for women, which is a much more complex and risky procedure.
A Vasectomy is a quick and easy procedure. You can walk out of the clinic within an hour post the procedure and only require a few days of low activity to recover. Modern no needle, no scalpel vasectomies are even more painless and easy compared to traditional vasectomies. The doctor can divide the vas deferens tubes in a short, 30-minute procedure that is performed in the doctor’s office instead of a surgery room. Men only need local anesthesia, which isn’t as risky as general anesthesia.
This procedure is popular because it is reversible, especially if you undergo the reversal procedure quickly. The chances of success vary from 30% to 90% depending on the gap between an Ottawa vasectomy and the reversal procedure. Most men are able to get their partners pregnant successfully after the reversal procedure.
4. Low Risk
A Vasectomy is a relatively low-risk procedure, especially when compared to tubal ligation. It is performed with local anesthesia and is minimally invasive. No vital organs are exposed or damaged during this procedure, and there’s no risk of the patient bleeding out. Vasectomies also have a lower risk of infection, especially if there’s no incision. Tubal ligation can place a woman’s health at serious risk.
5. Low Cost
Vasectomies are quite affordable because they don’t take much time. It is a one-time expense and you don’t have to spend on contraceptives ever again. We still encourage you to use condoms, but there’s no risk of pregnancy if you don’t.
