So, you’ve come to see us to consider sterilisation. There are lots of options for sterilisation for the man or the woman, but I’m going to focus on the man. Now an excellent form of contraception in this circumstance is a vasectomy. A vasectomy is a procedure that involves removing part of the tube called the Vas that carries sperm from the testis to the outside. It is a straightforward procedure that can be done under local anaesthetic by numbing the area or under a general anaesthetic when you are fast asleep. Through a small incision in the scrotum we can remove the section of vas, but we can also do a scalpel-less technique where there is no incision in the scrotum at all. Both of these techniques can be discussed by one of our expert fertility consultants.
