Vasectomie Ottawa

La vasectomie cause-t-elle l’impuissance ou affecte-t-elle la sexualité?

Selon IntraHealth International, Inc., la vasectomie est la méthode de contraception moderne la plus utilisée au Canada. Malgré cela, de nombreux hommes s’inquiètent des effets de la vasectomie sur leur santé sexuelle. Si vous avez les mêmes préoccupations, sachez que la vasectomie ne diminue pas votre libido et ne provoque pas d’impuissance. Comprendre ce qui se passe pendant une vasectomie dans une clinique d’Ottawa peut vous aider à comprendre pourquoi une vasectomie est sûre, efficace et à faible risque.

L’intervention de la vasectomie

Une vasectomie est une intervention sans hospitalisation qui se déroule dans le cabinet du médecin. Elle prend environ 10 minutes. Le médecin utilise une anesthésie locale pour engourdir la peau. Il pratique une petite ouverture pour effectuer l’interruption des canaux déférents, le tube qui transporte les spermatozoïdes des testicules vers l’urètre. Une petite agrafe est posée pour s’assurer que les extrémités des tubes ne se recollent pas ensemble. Aucun point de suture n’est requis. La petite ouverture se referme d’elle-même en un jour. Les patients rentrent chez eux le jour même de leur intervention avec la recommandation de se reposer pendant quelques jours. Vous devrez utiliser une autre forme de contraception pendant environ trois mois pour faire analyser votre sperme. Cela permet de s’assurer qu’aucun sperme n’est présent.

Pourquoi une vasectomie n’affecte pas la sexualité

Une vasectomie ne modifie pas vos hormones et n’a pas d’impact sur votre physiologie. Votre corps continue à produire du sperme et de la testostérone après votre vasectomie. Les spermatozoïdes sont produits par vos testicules. Après une vasectomie, au lieu de passer par les canaux déférents pour atteindre l’urètre, votre corps absorbe le sperme. Vous ne devriez pas remarquer de changement dans le volume de celui-ci, car les spermatozoïdes ne représentent qu’environ 5 % du volume total du sperme. Le sperme est produit dans la prostate et les vésicules séminales, qui ne sont pas affectées par la vasectomie. Votre libido ne sera pas affectée négativement par votre vasectomie. En fait, la vasectomie a souvent un effet positif sur la sexualité, car l’anxiété est moindre et les risques de grossesse non désirée sont réduits.

Had my vasectomy performed by Dr Dumais, who has taken over for Dr Weiss who has since retired. She was absolutely excellent. Great bedside manner, clear explanations of what was happening and any potential discomfort that might be felt during each step. Entire procedure from freezing to finish took under 10 minutes.Before beginning Dr Bercier confirmed my age (31), that I had no children, and that I was 100% certain I never wanted to have any (and that my partner felt the same way). She reiterated that while surgical reversal is sometimes possible, the procedure should be considered permanent.Nurses/office staff were friendly and efficient. Got up from the table a bit too quick and ended up sitting down in the chair and fainting. They were right on top of things and immediately went into their usual routine for when those things happen. We had a little chuckle about it, and at no point did it feel weird or judgemental which I very much appreciated.A couple of other notes based on some things mentioned in a few other reviews here:- Total out of pocket fees are $170, consisting of a $20 deposit and $150 on the day of the procedure. Those costs are detailed in the attached photo of the “Pre and Post Vasectomy Kit”. As detailed on the page patients can choose to pay only for the specific items/services they want, and they also give you a week post-procedure to request a refund and pay only for the needed items. This information is not provided anywhere before going in, so most will just pay the $170 and be done with it. While some of these costs are certainly quite highly inflated, they do help make up for the fairly minimal compensation the clinic receives from OHIP for each procedure.- Website is a bit of a mess, although most of the important bits are easy to find (and all the most important info is attached to the emails you’ll get). Specifically one thing they have changed is that you do *not* need to travel to the office to pick up your vasectomy package before the procedure! You are given it after your appointment just before leaving.- To the few complaining about pain/discomfort lasting more than the first week and “not being made aware of the risks”… did you not bother to fully read through the documentation available both on the website as well as repeatedly sent to you in the emails? All of the risks and rates of various complications are explicitly laid out in advance. Every body is different, and there is a small chance of a variety of complications. Choosing to ignore the provided information and then complaining that you wouldn’t have gone through with it if you knew is just ridiculous.One last recommendation for the doctors here: I highly recommend investing the few thousand dollars towards having a professional web design company re-build you a new website from the ground up. The current site is a mess, particularly on modern phones, and this is something that will radically improve the patient experience.

Dr. Valerie Dumois did my vasectomy, and she was really quite kind willing to answer questions. It was for the most part painless and the pain you feel is minimal. Reception was also pretty great they answered all my questions to male sire I heal properly. Was great meeting them all and doing it the modern way or a scalpel and needle is definitely in every males favour. Thank you so much for being such great people

Half an hour to my appointment they told me to wait outside(35 degrees celcius) until exactly my appointment. Dr. Bercier if you can call him a doctor had the most rude and disrespectful attitude I've had from a doctor. I asked him three questions to which he said he didn't care. During the procedure I simply asked how long does it take and he replied with "How long do you think it takes? Did you see me with the other patients?" I think his attitude was racially motivated because I'm not French. Don't come here! Go somewhere else!

Great clinic, 5 stars all around. Leading up to the appointment they provide you with fantastic information that explains everything in detail. Great communication, super organized, friendly and professional. Everyone from reception, to the nurse, to the doctor - all were pleasant, efficient, and professional. It was a huge piece of mind. The doctor played my choice of music during the procedure. It was practically painless, with only minor discomfort for a brief moment, and it was quick. I am now recovering comfortably with very detailed instructions about how to enhance my recovery. Thank you Dr. Weiss and Dr. Bercier! Highly recommend.

The process of getting my vasectomy was quite efficient. From walking in the office door to sitting down in my car again was only 20 minutes. The staff was very friendly in greeting you and providing instructions and Dr. Bercier was pleasant to deal with, friendly and gentle. Dare I say the experience was enjoyable! Any trepidation one has about the procedure, don’t worry! Thanks to all.
