What does the vasectomy entail?

A vasectomy is a permanent minor operation which cuts off the vas deferens (the tubes that carry sperm from your testicles to your penis). It is considered to be one of the most effective long-term methods of contraception.

The process involves splitting the tubes and sealing each end to stop the flow of sperm into your semen, the cuts in your skin are then closed using dissolvable stitches.

The non-scalpel technique has become popular since the 1980s as it causes less bleeding and a faster recovery. Also referred to as a ‘keyhole vasectomy’ the surgeon uses locking forceps to puncture a small hole through the skin. 

Summerfield Healthcare’s private vasectomy is:

  • Affordable
  • Simple, fast procedure
  • Without counselling if you prefer 

Summerfield Healthcare provides regular vasectomy clinics in Wolverhampton and our Consultant will also offer the service in Shrewsbury from January 2021.

The cost of a vasectomy with Summerfield Healthcare is £499.00.

Do I need a consultation/counselling before a vasectomy?

Generally we are able to provide your vasectomy without any prior consultation or counselling, but our consultant will still obtain consent and go through all the relevant paperwork, answering any questions you have.

We also offer patients a prior consultation where preferred so that if you are not 100% certain you want a vasectomy, the full details of the procedure and whether it is right for you can be discussed. Please note if you then decide you wish to proceed this must be booked for another day.

There are some categories of patients who must book a prior consultation in order for our Consultant to fully discuss the procedure:

  • Poorly controlled diabetics
  • Corticosteriod users
  • Patients on blood thinners (Aspirin, Warfarin, Dabigartan, Rivaroxaban, Apixaban, Clopidogrel etc).
  • Those with a weakened immune system (immuno-supressed) through any of the following possibilities:
    • Conditions HIV etc
    • Treatments like Chemotherapy, Methotrexate, etc.
    • Operations like organ transplant or splenectomy
  • Hernias into the scrotum
  • If you are less then 30 years old with no children or
  • If you are less than 25 years old and have children
  • Patients with a BMI is above 35 (i.e. you are obese, this can make vasectomy more difficult and infection more likely)
  • Men who have had an orchidopexy (surgery, because as a baby your testicles were not fully descended.
  • Those who have had a vasectomy reversal or other sugery.
  • If you have noticed a lump in your scrotum, which has not been assessed and found innocent by any health professional.

How long will my recovery take?

Your vasectomy will be carried out using local anaesthetic and will take around 15 minutes. 

Easily managed with low dose painkillers, most men experience minor discomfort and mild swelling for a couple of weeks. 

Depending on your occupation, most men need less than 2 days before returning to work but should avoid heavy lifting or sports for at least one week. 

How will a vasectomy affect my sex drive?

A vasectomy will not affect your sex drive or ability to have sex. You will still be able to have erections and produce the same amount of semen when you ejaculate. 

Your body will still continue to produce sperm, but this will be naturally be reabsorbed by the body. 

Can a vasectomy be reversed?

A vasectomy is considered to be permanent, as they are very difficult to reverse. A vasectomy reversal is not generally available on the NHS. 

However, reversing a vasectomy to restore fertility is possible for many men who have undergone the procedure. A vasectomy reversal is not always guaranteed to restore fertility and is often most effective within 10 years of the vasectomy.
