How Does Vasectomy Work

How Does Vasectomy Work?

Vasectomy really is a very simple procedure. There is only reason to have a vasectomy: to permanently prevent you from fathering a pregnancy.

Vasectomy prevents you from causing pregnancy by creating permanent blockage of the vas deferens tubes. Most patients have two vas deferens: one on the right and one on the left. The vas deferens are the tubes that allow sperm to travel up from the testicles to storage areas located behind the prostate gland.

A vasectomy procedure divides each vas deferens and permanently prevents sperm from going to their internal storage sites.

After you heal from your vasectomy, your body continues to produce sperm but the sperm are unable to pass the blockage at the vasectomy sites.


Your body continues to produce sperm but the sperm is just resorbed!

Your body continues to release fluid at the time of ejaculation. This fluid comes from the prostate and seminal vesicles located above the vasectomy sites. After vasectomy, the fluid released during ejaculation does not contain sperm. No sperm means no conception. No conception means no pregnancy!

His Choice Vasectomy is one of the most minimally invasive forms of vasectomy. When you have a His Choice vasectomy your vasectomy will be performed as outlined below:

  • No scalpel used for skin opening
  • Single spread skin opening in the middle
  • No sutures required
  • Open end technique
  • Long acting local anesthetic
For more detailed information: His Choice Vasectomy Explained In Detail To fully understand the benefits of having a His Choice Vasectomy then you need to understand alternative vasectomy procedures used by some doctors. Many doctors will offer a more traditional vasectomy procedure. They will use a needle to administer the local anesthesia. They may use a scalpel to make an incision on each side of the scrotum. If a scalpel is used to make a skin opening then the skin opening will need to be closed with sutures. These sutures may hang around for several weeks until they fully dissolve or need to be removed. Many vasectomy providers will remove a section of each tube with ligation (tying) and resection (removing). When these doctors tie off or clip the lower end closed then you may have more pain during your vasectomy recovery. Closing the lower end may result in more discomfort during the recovery period. Not only does removing sections of your vas deferens tubes potentially cause more discomfort, but these techniques may increase the chance of vasectomy failure.
