If you have completed your family and/or do not wish to have pregnancy, vasectomy offers a simple, safe and cost effective approach to achieve this goal.
Vasectomy is the procedure of dividing the vas (the tube that delivers the sperm from the testis to the prostate) in order to prevent conception. It is the most common method of male contraception in this country where about 500,000 vasectomies are done each year. It is an elective surgical procedure to achieve sterility. Since vasectomy simply interrupts the delivery of the sperm, it does not change the hormonal function of the testis and sexual drive and ability remain intact. Since most of the semen is composed of fluid from the prostate, the semen will look the same. Although the man continues to have sexual intercourse and climax as before, his semen does not contain sperm and he cannot father a child following a vasectomy.
No scalpel-vasectomy is different from a conventional vasectomy in the way it is performed surgically. As the name of technique says it, no knife (scalpel) is used. An improved method of anesthesia helps make the procedure less painful.
The testes continue to produce sperm after vasectomy. They however face obstruction on their path to semen at the site of vasectomy. After living their life span (like many other cells) they die and are dissolved. The proteins and debris so produced are absorbed into body.
“No SNIP” is definitely the way to go here. Dr Agha made the procedure painless – it was relatively quick. Seriously, I was freaked before hand – looking back on it – it was simple. I view a vasectomy the same way I view dental work – I expect to be a little uncomfortable but pain free. Dr Agha met these standard
I had the procedure and I was very nervous throughout. I was very happy with DR Agha and his staff were all very nice and professional. Everything went very well. Very little pain, if any. Was a little sore, but I was fine after 2 days. Thanks a lot!
I had my procedure done now over 1 month ago and I have to say that my experience was very pleasant and professional. Dr Arif was through in explaining the procedure ahead of with my spouse and I and made us feel comfortable. The procedure was truly no pain, and I am still surprised how quickly it was completed. I would highly recommend anyone considering vasectomy to Dr Arif!
I am in complete awe as to how fast and painless this procedure was. I was a little nervous but the professionalism of the Dr and staff made me very comfortable and it helped that they had music playing to lighten the mood. The only pain I felt lasted a few seconds. You will be a little sore for obvious reasons so just give yourself a couple of days and you’ll be as good as new. Would highly recommend this office if you and your wife/ partner are planning to not have children.
