Is your family big enough? We took to Facebook and asked for recommendations and reviews by real local families on the best clinics to get a vasectomy Brisbane wide. Here’s what our families recommended.
What to know before you go!
Vasectomies may not be forever! The amazing human body is so efficient at healing itself that it’s not at all uncommon for a vasectomy to reverse itself. There is mounting evidence that Cautery (cauterising or burning the vas deferens as opposed to cutting or blocking it) is more effective as a permanent birth control solution with up to 99.7% effectiveness. No matter what method your doctor chooses, it’s vital to get the results checked regularly or you could find yourself expecting a bundle of joy!
Which type of vasectomy should you choose?
Vasectomy in Brisbane has come ahead over the last few years! There are two (technically 3) main ways for doctors to access and alter the vas deferens. These are both quick, simple and relatively low risk. They’re far safer than tubal ligation in women and 99.9999% less painful than birth!
This is where a urologist uses a scalpel to make two 1.5cm long incisions into the scrotum to access the vas deferens. These are used to access, cut and tie the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. This kind of vasectomy requires stitches which can lead to complications related to infection.
No-Scalpel Vasectomy and Minimally Invasive Vasectomy
While these are technically two different procedures (because of the different instruments used) there is no noticable difference to the patient. There is only one incision point on this kind of surgery and it is smaller so no stitches are required after. Current data indicates that these procedures have fewer post surgical complications.
