How Does Vasectomy Work?

Vasectomy is a surgical procedure that is commonly referred to as sterilization of man or male sterilization. The result of vasectomy is permanent contraception. Once a man has undergone a successful vasectomy, it is not possible for him to get his partner pregnant.

In Des Moines vasectomy is an extremely common procedure and a growing number of males are opting for a safe, medical way to prevent conception forever without having to use other modes of contraception. Before you can understand how vasectomy works, there is a necessity to understand the process how sperm and semen are formed, circulated and then ejaculated.

Sperm is produced in the testicles of the male. It is consistently produced in millions and stored in the epididymis where the sperm develops and matures. Thereon, the sperms are circulated through the vas deferens and then onto the seminal vesicles. It is here that the sperm blends with the lubricating fluid known as semen. The mixture of sperm and semen is then circulated through to the urethra from where they are eventually ejaculated when the male has sexual intercourse culminating into an orgasm.

Vasectomy is a procedure where the vas deferens are cut off and tied to block off the passage of the sperm from the epididymis. As the vas deferens blocks the passage of the sperm, only semen gets circulated from the seminal vesicles to the urethra. After vasectomy, the fluid ejaculated or discharged by the male would only contain semen and no sperm.

However, vasectomy doesn’t lead to an immediate disruption of sperm supply to the urethra because a certain quantity of sperm has already been passed onto the seminal vesicles and to the urethra when the surgery takes place. Unless the already produced sperm gets discharged or gets absorbed by the body, there is a chance of conception. It may take a few days to a several weeks for males to use up the already produced and ready to be discharged sperm.

In Des Moines vasectomy is regarded as one of the safest and most surefire form of contraception.
