What Is a No-Scalpel Vasectomy?
One of the most common US surgeries is vasectomy. This simple birth control prevents sperm from leaving the penis. US doctors perform 500,000 vasectomies annually. Insurance usually covers them.
No-scalpel vasectomy has been preferred since the 1980s. This method works as well as vasectomy. No-scalpel surgery is popular because it is simpler to perform and recovers faster.
What Does a Vasectomy Do?
A vasectomy is an effective birth control method. Doctors block the testicular tubes that carry sperm during surgery. You can still ejaculate without sperm. Without sperm, your partner cannot get pregnant.
Sperms are produced in testicles. They mix with prostate and seminal vesicle-produced seminal fluid. The vas deferens transports sperm and seminal fluid to the urethra. Penis urethras are tubes. Your semen and urine pass through.
Your doctor disconnects the vas deferens during a vasectomy. The tube ends are sealed by your doctor after surgery. The outside of your penis and scrotum look and feel the same, and your testicles produce sperm. Sperm cannot leave the testicles and ejaculate because the internal passage is blocked. Your orgasms will be fluid, not sperm.
How Does No-Scalpel Vasectomy Work?
No-scalpel vasectomy uses a scrotal sac puncture instead of a large scrotum incision. Stitches are rarely needed after this procedure because the hole is so small. To eliminate vasectomy pain, topical anesthetic is used.
The procedure is similar to a standard vasectomy and aims to prevent future childbearing. The vas deferens must be severed for sterilization. Sperm travels to testes-stored semen via these two tubes. Cutting the vas deferens prevents this sperm from fertilizing a woman’s eggs.
Each tube is gently manipulated until it protrudes through the puncture site during a keyhole vasectomy. After a clear view, your urologist cuts and blocks the vas deferens permanently.
No-Scalpel vs. Traditional Vasectomy
Traditional and no-scalpel vasectomy are known to exist. Both are outpatient. Many doctors perform them in offices. Hospitalization or surgery may be necessary. You can go home the same day after the 30-minute surgery.
Traditional vasectomy. In a traditional vasectomy, your doctor reduces the area of your scrotum with local anesthetic. They will inject anesthetic with a needle. Your doctor may prescribe anxiety medication.
