Are vasectomies painful?
The procedure itself shouldn’t be painful, but you might feel a small pinch with the anesthetic injection before the area goes numb. Some men report a pulling or tugging sensation when the vas deferens tubes are handled during vasectomy, but discomfort generally lasts just a few moments.
How long does a vasectomy last?
The procedure lasts about 20-25 minutes. The first step in a vasectomy is to locate and expose the vas deferens. The surgeon will then remove a small section of the vas deferens through a small incision to interrupt the vas which then prevents transport of sperm during ejaculation.
Why vasectomy is done?
A vasectomy is a small operation to prevent pregnancy. It blocks sperm from getting to your semen when you ejaculate. With no sperm leaving your body, you can’t get someone pregnant.
