Are you a male who does not want to have children or further extend your existing family? If the answer is yes, you may want to consider getting a vasectomy. At Urology Specialists of Milford, Dr. Jeffrey Steinberg will guide you through the process with care. He is a Harvard-trained Urologist and is a great source for a vasectomy in Milford, MA.
What Is A Vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a procedure a man will undergo when he does not want to impregnate a woman. In essence, it is an effective form of male birth control. It is also permanent. During the procedure, an experienced urologist will ensure that sperm won't leave the penis when a patient has sexual intercourse.
How Is The Procedure Performed?
When you begin this outpatient procedure for a Vasectomy in Milford, MA, Dr. Steinberg will give you a local anesthetic. He will then make a small incision and remove a part of your vas deferens. Once he completes the vasectomy, sperm will no longer reach your urethra. It won’t take much of your time as it will be over in about 20 minutes.
What Does Post-Care Involve?
After you go home, our office will advise you to do the following for a few days:
- Get plenty of rest
- Avoid rigorous activity for a week
- Ice the scrotal area for 24 hours
- Wear snug underwear
- Mail in a semen sample a week later
We will see you in our office a few months after the procedure. Our staff will check that you have successfully healed from the surgery. We also want to remind you that this operation will stop you from fathering a child, but it won't protect you from STIs.
If you are sure that you don't want to have children, contact our office at (508) 473-6333 for a vasectomy in Milford, MA. Come to Urology Specialists of Milford where Dr. Steinberg can perform this safe method of male birth control for your family planning needs.
