Vasectomy – What is this?

Male sterilization is also known as vasectomy. If a man wishes to look into methods of contraception, vasectomy is currently considered to be one of the safest methods. In this minor surgical intervention, only the vas deferens is severed. This has the result that semen no more spermatozoa exist in the ejaculated and fatherhood can be excluded to nearly 100% (Pearl Index nearly at 0). The execution of the vasectomy is done under local anesthesia or under mild sedation. Vasectomy as a surgery is uncomplicated, yet it should be still carried out by an experienced urologist who carries out this type of surgery accordingly often.

After the vasectomy , the male potency the desire for sex and the erection and ejaculation ability will continue to be preserved. In the seminal fluid, there are no more sperms present, otherwise the seminal fluid remains unchanged. There will be no more of an unintentional pregnancy. Many men feel that the quality of life and their sexual life has improved following a vasectomy or they consider it as having remained unchanged.

For patients (couples) deciding on sterilization, family planning has already been completed and the search is on for a reliable contraception method. One of the advantages of a sterilization – be it in males or females – is in the fact that, from now on, there is no need anymore to concern oneself or to think about the subject of contraception. Couples considering a sterilization should, one the one hand, already have passed a certain age mark (usually, they will be aged from 30 onwards) and already have children or they should be sure that they do not want to have any children or that they do not want to have any addition children. In the ideal case, the couple will be living in a long-standing relationship, already had some children and will have completed its planning concerning this. If the couple decides in favor of sterilization, the next question will be who of the two will undergo surgery.

Important factors to answer this question are age, psychological resilience or present illnesses. It is helpful here to have a consultation with a medical doctor about the process of sterilization, the risks involved and the consequences resulting from it. Also, there are counseling centers concerning this matter, for example, Pro Familia. Male sterilization – vasectomy – is a small surgical intervention that is fast to perform and during which fewer complications can appear. For example, a woman is sterilized under general anesthesia. There are also medical reasons for the execution of a vasectomy, for example, certain genetic diseases. Here an individual and detailed consultation is necessary with the urologist.

Which objective will be achieved?

With a vasectomy, the natural path of the sperms will be blocked i.e. the route of transport of the sperms is severed. The ovum cannot be thereby fertilized any more. The following, however, will persist or remain to be preserved: ability to have an erection (penis stiffening) potency and ejaculation, ability to have an orgasm, sexual desire (sexual pleasure), the production of the male sexual hormone testosterone. the function of the testicles (hormone production) also remains preserved. The spermatozoa forming in the testicles are automatically degraded by the body again. In the long term, the sperm production in the testicles will, be reduced so that a "sperm traffic jam" cannot result. Also, ejaculation remains virtually unchanged after the vasectomy. In the ejaculated semen, however, there will be no more sperms present. The seminal fluid formed primarily by the male prostatic gland (prostate gland).

Vasectomy is currently considered to be the safest and easiest method of fertility control in males.
