Vasectomy How It Works


Are you tired of listening to your wives go on and on about how they are tired of being on birth control since they were 16?  Yikes, so it is time to man up and step up to the plate. Vasectomy isn’t a bad word, it isn’t the end to your manhood, and it really isn’t that bad of a procedure.  Vasectomy is a minimally invasive surgery that patients usually are going back to normal activity within a few days.  It is the most effective form of contraception besides abstinence.

So, what’s stopping you?

  • Are you worried your “manliness” is going to come to a sudden halt, because your testosterone is going to lower?

  • Are you worried that its going to hurt because our precious “jewels” are so sensitive?

  • Are you worried that it is not reversible?

  • Or have you heard that it might cause prostate cancer, and who wants to deal with that?

The Procedure

All these worries are common misconceptions of what really goes on with a man’s body and what the procedure of a vasectomy consists of.

When your doctor is performing a vasectomy, he is a simply disrupting the plumbing system inside your body.  Sperm is still being produce every single day and your body can reabsorb them.  There will be no change to your erection or ejaculation.

So again, the question comes up, what’s stopping you?

  • Your testosterone will not be affected by this procedure, So your manliness will still be the same.

  • Addressing the second worry is a little more tough since every man has different pain tolerance.  Doctors use local anesthetic to numb your skin and testes so no pain will be felt during the procedure.  After the procedure, ice, anti-inflammatory medications and being a couch potato are usually what most men needed.  However, this procedure leaves you with a choice of what’s more painful; listening to your wife talk about how she’s tired of being on birth control or have the procedure.  Besides, you will score major points with your wife.

  • Vasectomy can be reversed but success rate is based on time after the procedure.  Because sperm is continuously being produced, fatherhood is still possible through microsurgical vasectomy reversal or sperm retrieval procedure with IVF.

  • Finally, a serious concern that no man wishes to ever encounter is prostate cancer. Fortunately, there are no studies that show vasectomy causes prostate cancer.

So finally, what’s stopping you? Take control of your sex life again and rejuvenate the bedroom with a happy wife. It’s safe, its easy, its smart.
