What are the Advantages and Disadvantages?
The most important advantage of vasectomy is that it is a permanent and lifelong method of birth control. Vasectomy is performed by urologists under local anesthesia and in the conditions of the practice. Present in the circumstances, it has become a fairly easy and safe process. Since other methods of birth control have eliminated anxiety or discomfort, it can be said that vasectomy has a positive effect on sex life. Since the transactions will not be connected to semen production; there will be no change in the amount and appearance of semen in the male after the procedure. Likewise, since hormone production continues unchanged, no physical changes in the content of sexual desire and activity are expected to occur.
On the other hand, vasectomy is a permanent method and, in the future, individuals want to have children again; reopening of canals with operation may not always happen successfully. In such cases, surgical sperm search and micro-injection may be applied.
Effectiveness of Vasectomy Operation
Some sperm can survive in tubes for a few weeks after vasectomy. These sperms can go into the semen for the first few weeks after the operation. Therefore, a semen test is performed about 12 weeks after the operation and only the absence of sperm in the semen unprotected sexuality is recommended. If sperm cells are encountered as a result of the test, sperm analysis should be repeated after 1 month. Patients should continue to use an additional method of contraception during these periods.
Risks and Complications
As with any surgical procedure, there may be a risk of a number of complications in vasectomy procedures.

Postoperative pain syndrome is a chronic pain syndrome that occurs after vasectomy. It can often be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs. There may rarely be pain in the testicles due to fluid and sperm accumulated after the procedure. This condition appears to have been lost in approximately 6 months.
There may be a hematoma. If the bleeding into the scrotum does not stop, the blood can clot and form a mass. This hematoma, which is quite rare, may need to be emptied with a second surgical procedure.
Past while it is suggested that there may be an increase in the risk of prostate cancer after vasectomy; Recent studies have shown that there is no relationship between vasectomy and prostate cancer.

- After the operation, protection does not start immediately. Depending on the results of the sperm examination, it is necessary to apply an additional prevention method until your doctor gives his approval.
- If the desire to have children again after the operation occurs, it is difficult to return. Revisit highly damaged canals permeable operations are shifting operations at success rates. If success is not achieved and the desire of the child continues, it may be necessary to refer to sperm collection methods through aspiration from the testicle.
