Vasectomy in Dubai at DRHC Andrology Clinic

What is Vasectomy?

Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilization or permanent contraception. It involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra, to prevent the release of sperm during ejaculation. Vasectomy does not affect the production of semen, the fluid that carries sperm.


  1. Anesthesia: Vasectomy is typically performed under local anesthesia. Some clinics may offer sedation or general anesthesia.
  2. Incision: The surgeon makes a small incision on each side of the scrotum to access the vas deferens.
  3. Vasectomy: The vas deferens is cut, tied, or sealed to prevent the passage of sperm.
  4. Closure: The incisions are closed with sutures or surgical glue.


  • Most men can resume normal activities within a few days.
  • Pain, swelling, and bruising are common but usually resolve within a week.
  • It is important to use another form of contraception until a follow-up sperm test confirms that no sperm are present in the ejaculate.


  • Vasectomy is over 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.
  • It may take a few months or ejaculations for remaining sperm to be cleared from the reproductive system.


  • Permanent contraception: Vasectomy provides long-term contraception without the need for ongoing maintenance.
  • Cost-effective: Over time, vasectomy is more cost-effective than other forms of contraception.
  • Minimal side effects: Vasectomy is a low-risk procedure with a low rate of complications.

Risks and Complications:

  • Infection at the incision site
  • Bleeding or bruising in the scrotum
  • Chronic pain in the testicles or scrotum (post-vasectomy pain syndrome)

Alternatives to Vasectomy:

  • Condoms: Condoms are a temporary form of contraception that also protect against sexually transmitted infections.
  • Birth control pills: Birth control pills are a hormonal form of contraception for women.


Vasectomy is a safe and effective method of permanent contraception for men who do not wish to father children in the future. It is a relatively simple procedure with minimal risks and complications. However, it is important to carefully consider all options and discuss them with a healthcare provider before undergoing a vasectomy.
