No-Scalpel Vasectomy vs Traditional Vasectomy

A traditional vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure performed by a surgeon to make a man sterile. It is one of the most popular forms of contraception in the United States and worldwide and is regarded as safe, simple, and highly effective. A vasectomy is performed by cutting the vas deferens, the small tubes that carry sperm from the man’s testicles to become part of his semen. Although the man continues to have sexual intercourse and climax as before, his semen does not contain sperm and he cannot father a child following a vasectomy.

With a no-scalpel vasectomy a special instrument is used to make a single small (<5mm) opening in the scrotum. As a result, there typically is less bleeding, a lower chance of infection, no perceptible scarring and a much faster recovery with a no-scalpel vasectomy.

Vasectomy vs Other Contraceptive Methods

There are a number of different methods of birth control. In general, these methods fall into several basic categories:

  • The couple uses abstinence or timing
  • The man surgically becomes sterile
  • The woman surgically becomes sterile
  • Pills are taken to decrease the likelihood of contraception
