Background Information About Your Vasectomy

Sperm are made in the testes. From here the sperm pass into the epididymus located behind each testicle where they become mature. They then pass through two tubes call the vas deferens (one on each side of the scrotum) to the region of the prostate where they combine with seminal fluid and are ejaculated through the urethra (the tube through which men urinate and ejaculate). Vasectomy is a simple procedure through which the flow of sperm is interrupted by dividing the two vas deferens, thus preventing the ejaculation of semen containing sperm.

After the procedure, you should notice no change in the semen, sex drive, climax sensation, testes or scrotum and no change in erections. Recent studies have actually concluded that a vasectomy positively impacts on the sexual satisfaction of couples.

The procedure should be seen as permanent. There is a chance of reversal successfully resulting in a pregnancy in approximately 60 percent of cases. It is, however, expensive, and there is no guarantees.
