6 Things to Know About Vasectomies Ottawa

A vasectomy is a permanent form of birth control. You and your partner should discuss whether it’s the right choice for you. Here are a few important things that you should know:

  1. A vasectomy doesn’t affect your sex drive or hormones.
  2. You should still use a form of birth control until the doctor confirms that there are no more spermatozoids present in your ejaculate, which takes a few weeks.
  3. A vasectomy can be reversed, but vasectomy reversal has a lower success rate.
  4. The procedure is done with a local anesthetic.  If you are very anxious, we can also prescribe you an anxiolytic.
  5. You should be able to resume normal activities, such as exercise and sex, within seven days.
  6. A vasectomy won’t protect you against sexually transmitted infections.
