On The Day
What To Expect
What To Expect
Vasectomy procedures are big deals for our patients but routine for us. Allow yourself to lie back, enjoy some down-time and let us do the hard work.
Here are some points on what to expect on the big day..
It’s worth having a look at the FAQ’s.
Please arrive on time so that you can complete your registration form. We’ll ask for your Medicare and personal details. You must complete the pre-vasectomy questionnaire which covers any relevant medical history.
You will then meet your “The Vasectomist Doctor” and be taken to the consulting room where you have a chat about the procedure. Your partner is welcome to attend.
The doctor will need to briefly examine you in privacy.
Feel free to ask any questions at all. The doctor will explain the small risks of no scalpel vasectomy. You are invited to sign the consent form when you’re happy to go ahead. You will be asked to come back on another day when you are not certain of your decision.
You will be in the procedure room for around half an hour. Before the doctor starts you must empty your pockets (your things will be in arm’s reach). You remove just your shoes at this stage and lie on the couch. The doctor and nurse prepare the trolley whilst a hot water bottle is applied over your trousers. Your privacy is prioritised throughout the procedure.
Try to distract yourself and let the vasectomy doctor do his bit. He’s friendly but he has a job to do! So bring your headphones, read a book or play on whatever app you usually do – whatever you’d do at home when you get to lie down on the couch.
The doctor applies a small dressing. You’ll stay in the clinic for fifteen minutes or so for recovery.
Our patients usually drive home. It is highly unlikely that you will not feel able to drive home. The doctor will discuss driving with you after the procedure.
Absolutely. The The Vasectomist service includes full aftercare.
Please ring the doctor if you have any concerns at all on his mobile number. This is given to you at the appointment.
