Specialty of Andrology

Vasectomy is the total or partial removal of the man's vas deferens, which are the tubes that carry the sperm out of the testicles. What it does is obstruct the sperm canal, and therefore prevent sperm from coming out of the testicles. That is why it is an effective method for birth control, since women cannot get pregnant, but it is not recommended in the short term, because for a time there is still sperm stored. It is a simple ambulatory surgical procedure, in most cases, and local anaesthesia is used. Recovery takes less than a week. After a vasectomy, the man can continue to have orgasms or ejaculate semen.
