When do you get a vasectomy? What are the risks?
Today in science:What to expect when you get your vasectomyResults from the vasectomy procedure.
A vasectomy is a procedure in which a man removes the skin on his penis, the vas deferens, that keeps sperm in his womb.
It can be performed by an urologist, an optometrist, or a physician.
The procedure is usually done at the surgeon’s office.
The procedure can also be performed at home.
The doctor will have to perform an X-ray, take a sample of blood, and attach it to a probe.
He then will inject a small amount of vasoactive ingredient called a dye.
The dye will bind to the sperm and prevent it from ejaculating.
The vasectomy lasts about a minute.
