No-scalpel vasectomy is a worry-free and affordable option for permanent birth control for men.
The vasectomy is a two-appointment process. First appointment is a short consultation. Please note that Medicaid or private insurance may have waiting periods between consultation and procedure appointment.
The vasectomy procedure takes place in an exam room with no sedation to moderate sedation, depending on your preference. Quick recovery time after the vasectomy.
Effectiveness: 99.5-99.9%. Vasectomy is permanent and only a good option for those certain they do not want biological children in the future. Vasectomies do not protect against HIV/STIs, so condoms are recommended for safer sex.
