No Scalpel Vasectomy – What Is It All About?
Population explosion is a burgeoning problem in the world. There can never be any second opinion on this. But knowing the problem alone doesn't help unless we reach the solution for getting rid of the issue.
We all know that necessity is the mother of invention and as such continuous endeavor and efforts have borne fruits in finding a solution to this issue by way of vasectomy and others.
Why go for a Vasectomy?
Sex appeals to all ages even though females are found to become somewhat inactive post menopause in the matters of physical relationship. The productivity of the sperms in males, however, goes a long way before it stops and as such sexual urge in male partners is generally high in comparison with their female partners. But there is no sacrosanct rule on this as sperm production is directly related to the physical and mental fitness of the male partners and so goes the sexual urge.
Vasectomy, however, can be seen as a God sent opportunity in the matters of timely family planning involving less money and time. Moreover, it is widely accepted as the safe and secure way of birth control. But there are certain rules that need to be followed so as to become completely sterile. Doctors advise for using external contraceptive as a precaution during the first six months of vasectomy while having a physical relationship with the female partner, as they say, there still may be some sperms present in the seminal fluid that are capable of reproduction.
To become completely sterile, you have to have 25 – 30 ejaculations post vasectomy on an average for the people in general, and the number may vary up to 50 ejaculations in stray cases.
What is No-Scalpel Vasectomy?
The process of no-scalpel vasectomy takes less time and differs from the conventional method. Under this method doctors feel the vas deferens under the skin and then hold deferens with the help of clips, make minor opening on the scrotum, take out tubes and then cut them apart and suture at the cut ends that follows cauterizing. No need do anything on scrotum here as the opening is very small and heals fast on its own.
How no-scalpel vasectomy differs from that of the conventional type?
Conventional vasectomy is the primitive among all the types of vasectomies did which involve shaving and cleaning of the scrotum followed by an injection on the scrotum for the purpose of local anesthesia. The patient can use anesthesia cream for reducing the pain of the injection on the scrotum with the prior permission from his doctor.
Now an incision is made in the scrotum and then one vas deferens is taken out and clamped at a gap of 20mm. The portion in between the clamps is then removed. Both the cut ends are further sealed by sutures and then cauterized (burnt) with the help of an electric needle. This sealing can also be otherwise done by way of tying or clipping. The general guideline on the removal length of the vas deferens must be above 15mm.
In the case of no-scalpel vasectomy, the process is less time consuming alongside the faster recovery that a patient can ideally look at as the most advantageous condition for favoring no-scalpel vasectomy. Additionally, it's been observed that no scalpel vasectomy is less cumbersome post the operation in the matters of healing of the pierce on the scrotum.
Fever, however, can occur in both the cases; i.e. conventional vasectomy and no-scalpel vasectomy that is manageable at home by way of taking medicines in consultation with the doctor.
How long Is The Vasectomy Recovery Time?
In search of a straightforward answer to the question how much time vasectomy recovery takes so much so that one can lead the normal conjugal life, I find that it all depends on the kind of vasectomy that a patient had undergone. A problem well defined is half solved so goes a maxim and hence let's try and explore what vasectomy is all about and how many types of vasectomy are there. After all knowledge is power to us.
