General Information


Sperm form in the testes and, from here, pass into the epididymis located behind each testicle, where they become mature. The sperm then pass through two tubes called the vas deferens (one on each side of the scrotum) to the prostate region, 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.

As a patient of Queensland Vasectomy Clinics, you should experience no change in semen, sex drive, climax sensation, testes or scrotum and no change in erections following your procedure. In fact, recent studies have concluded that a vasectomy positively impacts the sexual satisfaction of couples which is an excellent outcome for patients.

Your vasectomy procedure should be considered permanent. There is a chance of vasectomy reversal successfully resulting in pregnancy in approximately 60 per cent of cases. However, it can be costly, and there are no guarantees the outcome will be favourable.
