If I decide a no-scalpel vasectomy is right for me, what happens next? There are several parts. Once you decide to find out more about a no-scalpel vasectomy, call our office at 435-503-9088 to schedule a phone call with Dr Berg.

This call usually lasts less than 15 minutes and is simply designed to let you talk to an experienced doctor about the procedure. Be prepared to ask questions during this call. Check out our list of frequently asked questions about no-scalpel vasecotmies.

1 – The Initial Examination


This meeting occurs in our office in Heber City. Our address is located at 1467 South Highway 40, Heber City, UT 84032. In this short appointment, you will be examined to ensure that you are a good candidate for the no-scalpel technique.

2 – The No-Scalpel Vasectomy Surgery

The actual surgery is rather quick. In most cases, the entire surgery takes about 10-15 minutes. Before the surgery you will be given a mild sedative to relax you. When the local anesthetic is injected into the skin of the scrotum you will feel some discomfort. It feels like a sharp pinch. But as soon as the anesthetic takes effect you should feel no pain. Afterwards, you will be sore for a couple of days, and you may want to take mild pain medication.

3 – Recovery from Surgery

One of the main benefits of choosing a no-scalpel vasectomy is that it is less invasive and therefore allows for a shorter recovery time. Learn more about the no-scalpel vasectomy surgery recovery process.

4 – Final Analysis

Since you will not be sterile right away you will later need to complete a semen analysis. This analysis should be performed about 2-3 months after your surgery. It typically takes about 20 ejaculations to clear the active sperm from your system. Use another form of birth control until this is completed.

You will be provided with the materials needed to take a sperm sample to a lab. Once the semen has been tested, Dr Berg will be contacted by the lab and he will then speak to you over the phone about the results. If you receive a negative semen analysis, it means the procedure was effective and the process is complete. If there is still sperm seen, you will need to continue to use contraception and repeat a semen analysis in another 1-2 months.
