The practice of vasectomy was pioneered in 1900s, but for many years the vasectomy procedure was used sparingly, especially after oral contraceptives were invented for women in the 1950s; many men were uncomfortable with the idea of elective surgery on their sexual organs. But today, vasectomy is becoming more frequent among men in Minnesota and the US, and men are more comfortable with the vasectomy procedure as education about vasectomies becomes more widely available online. Men realize that the idea that vasectomies will lower sex drive or libido is a myth; two vas deferens are cut in the vasectomy, preventing any sperm from exiting the body through the penis. All other functions of the testes are still intact. Even sperm is still produced, but it is absorbed by the body.
The most popular vasectomy technique in the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas is no scalpel vasectomy, it requires work off for only 2- 3 days compared that of 1-2 weeks with traditional vasectomy, and it is also much less invasive and more affordable than tubal litigation on women.
No scalpel vasectomy is an affordable, reliable form of male contraception that is more practical than other permanent alternatives in Minnesota. But men must know that sterilization is not immediate after vasectomy. Even after the vas deferens are cut, there is still sperm lingering in your system that can be present in semen. It will take several months before sterility is complete. You should use birth control until your physician determines you are completely sterile.
Still, vasectomies are permanent, so it is important to be informed before you decide to get one. There is the most important question one must consider:
Do I want any more children in the future? Vasectomies are more or less permanent. Once the procedure is done, it’s done. It is possible to have vasectomies reversed in Minnesota, but to do so is prohibitively expensive, unreliable, not to mention that sperm production will never be the same as it was before. Do not getting vasectomies if you are not absolutely sure that you want it, and do not assume you can reverse it.
