What are the risks and benefits of having a vasectomy performed? Ask doctor in Frisco clinic
When men have decided they no longer want to have children, they may not be aware of one of the most reliable contraception options for them: a vasectomy. The clinic at Legacy Male Health in Frisco, TX proudly offers highly reliable and quality vasectomies.
What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a contraceptive option that many couples consider when they do not want any more children. This procedure is permanent, though our team at Legacy Male Health can also discuss vasectomy reversal for those who regret having the procedure done in the past. A vasectomy eliminates the chance for sperm to enter the ejaculation that occurs during orgasm, keeping conception from happening. Ejaculation still occurs with normal sensation and normal volume, just no sperm. Many couples consider this option, so they no longer must worry about pregnancy or the use of birth control such as hormonal pills or condoms. A vasectomy is often chosen when a couple has decided they no longer want to grow their family.
What are the risks and benefits of undergoing a vasectomy?
There are many pros and cons for patients to consider when it comes to moving forward with a vasectomy. The benefits of a vasectomy include:
- Permanent way to eliminate the chance of having children in the future
- Fast and performed right in the office by our skilled doctor
- Eliminates the need for the female partner to be on hormones to reduce the risk of pregnancy
- Allows patients to return to office work in 48 hours and resume sexual intercourse in approximately one week following the treatment
Side effects are rare but can occur, including a 1 % risk of minor skin infection and 1 % risk of bruising inside the scrotum sac calle hematoma.

Will I be sterile right after the procedure?
First, it is important to understand that there may be sperm stored in the ducts that are past the point where the vasectomy has been performed. To clear them, several ejaculations may need to occur before the ejaculation no longer includes sperm. Many of our patients choose to resume sexual activity no earlier than one week following their surgical procedure. At this point, patients should still take care in using birth control methods for up to three months. This is the point in which the patient comes back into the practice to have their ejaculation evaluated to ensure that the vasectomy was successful. Without this evaluation, patients may still be at risk of becoming pregnant, so we encourage patients to take their due diligence and follow the aftercare protocols closely.
