Questions and Answers

Here are a few answers to women's most common questions:

Does a vasecomy change a man's sexual performance?
Vasectomy should not affect a man's sexual performance or ejaculation, unless he harbors fears or misconceptions of his own. Sperm is only a tiny portion of the seminal fluid that is released at ejaculation. A vasectomy does not change the volume, color or consistency of the ejaculate. The quality, intensity and duration of a man's orgasm and ejaculate should not change after vasectomy.

How long do we have to wait to have sex after a vasectomy?
After a vasectomy, it is usually best to wait at least a week following surgery before returning to sexual activity. It is many more weeks before the man is considered sterile.

How big a surgery is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a tiny surgical procedure - especially the No-Scalpel Vasectomy method- that usually leaves no visible scars, lumps, bumps or any other noticeable difference to the feel or appearance of the scrotum.

Isn't a tubal ligation just a easy as a vasectomy?
It's not true that tubal ligation is just as easy and safe as vasectomy. In fact, a vasectomy is far easier, faster and poses much less risk of complications than tubal ligation. Vasectomy does not require a general anesthetic or the longer recovery time.

Don't hesitate to make an appointment to ask Dr. Benderev any additional candid questions.
