Vasectomy or male sterilization is considered one of the most effective (99% effective) and most reliable contraceptive methods.

What is a vasectomy?

It is a simple surgical procedure, which is usually performed under local anesthesia, with which the doctor cuts or blocks the scrotum ducts that carry sperm. This operation ensures that there is no presence of sperm in the ejaculations.

Vasectomy is not effective immediately, there are millions of sperm in your system that need to be eliminated. This process usually takes about 3 months, so it is important to perform a spermiogram to confirm the total absence of sperm in the semen. This test is recommended 2/3 months after the intervention or after 30/40 ejaculations.

Vasectomy does not affect male sexuality in any case, that is, it does not change the way you get to ejaculate.

Is it possible to reverse a vasectomy?

This procedure in our clinics is irreversible. For that reason, it is important that, before undergoing this process you are 100% safe.

The purpose of the vasectomy is to be permanent, so, in general, it cannot be reversed.

In very few cases there is the possibility of reversing a vasectomy, but without guarantees. In addition, this process also depends on the time elapsed since the vasectomy was performed, on the type of procedure that was done or on whether your body developed antibodies against sperm.
