As a safe procedure of birth control, a vasectomy is popular in both Canada and North America. It is a credible and permanent solution because a pregnancy is ruled out post vasectomy. Our expert doctors can carry out non-invasive vasectomy at the Ottawa Vasectomy and Infant Circumcision clinic.
No needles or scalpels are used in the procedure. The patients are encouraged to take a concerted decision though the procedure is painless, dependable and result-oriented. Special attention is given to the age of the person.
Is There Legal Age?
The legal adult age to undergo a vasectomy is 18. Naturally, young people under this age are barred by law to opt for this procedure.
The Medical Professional’s View On The Right Age
An Ottawa vasectomy can be performed by medical professionals on patients over 18 years old. The patients are to be checked for soundness of mind although this is not mandatory. The doctors are committed on oath to ensure that a vasectomy is in the best interests of the patient. Therefore, doctors do sometimes refuse to carry out vasectomy procedures on people in their twenties whether married or single. The doctors study the personal history of the patient before making a decision to perform a vasectomy.
Is There An Average Age For a Non-Invasive Ottawa Vasectomy?
There are no rules for average or ideal age for an Ottawa Vasectomy. This is determined by the personal circumstances of the patient. If a person in his mid-twenties with a complete family with the desired number of children chooses to undergo a vasectomy, he could be an ideal candidate. On the other hand, a person in thirties and forties who may have postponed the decision to have children may not be the right candidate. The age range extends broadly from 25 to 55.
Research studies suggest that vasectomy patients in their twenties are 12.5 times more prone to get a reversal as age advances. The success rate of reversal is not 100% and is left to chance. If you want to avoid regretting your decision about opting for an Ottawa vasectomy, think carefully about a few factors like your age, partner, family, lifestyle as also your future plans.
