Blacketts No-Scalpel Vasectomy
What is a Vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure that makes a man permanently unable to father a child by keeping sperm out of semen. Sperm are made in the testicles. They pass through two tiny tubes called the vas deferens to other glands and mix with seminal fluids to form semen. Vasectomy blocks each vas deferens and keeps sperm out of the seminal fluid.
The procedure involves dividing and sealing the two tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the seminal fluid. After the procedure, your semen will not contain sperm, so when you ejaculate during sexual intercourse, you’ll be unable to get a woman pregnant. For your convenience and comfort, this procedure is performed in the office in a private, relaxing environment instead of the hospital.
