Vasectomy : operations and treatment in the UK


If you would like to learn about vasectomy male sterilisation, and the availability and cost of vasectomy, the following information will be of interest.


A vasectomy (male sterilisation) operation involves the cutting or sealing of the vas deferens which carries sperm from the testes to the penis. After a vasectomy the semen which is produced at ejaculation is normal but does not contain any sperm. Sterilisation by vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure which can be carried out under a local anaesthetic, and takes about 10 minutes to perform.


It is possible to have a vasectomy reversal, but you should bear in mind that the success rate is less than 50%.
