Your Guide to a Vasectomy in Seattle

Here's The DrSnip Guide to a Vasectomy in the Seattle Area

Explore Family Planning Options in Seattle:

Family planning and contraception offer a variety of choices, including both temporary and permanent solutions. Consulting your primary healthcare provider about these options is essential. We are also available to discuss this with you.

If you are contemplating whether a vasectomy is the right choice, it’s crucial to understand that vasectomy is a non-reversible procedure. You should opt for a vasectomy only if you have firmly decided not to expand your family.

When considering family planning in Seattle, a vasectomy stands out as an excellent permanent option. DrSnip is here to assist you with vasectomy services in the Seattle area and address any inquiries you may have.

Why Opt for a Vasectomy:

  • It’s a quick procedure, taking approximately 15 minutes, and provides permanent sterility.
  • It is incredibly safe, with over 500,000 procedures performed annually in the United States.
  • It’s more than 99.5% effectiveness.
  • It does not affect a man’s sex drive, hormones, or sexual performance.

Important Points to Remember When Planning Your Vasectomy:

  • Plan to return home and rest immediately after the procedure. You can resume regular activities the following day.
  • Arrange for a designated driver to take you home after the vasectomy since you won’t be permitted to drive yourself for safety reasons.
  • Continue to use alternative forms of birth control immediately after the procedure. Semen testing is conducted after a minimum of 8 weeks and 15 ejaculations.

What If I Desire Children After Undergoing a Vasectomy?

We view vasectomy as a permanent procedure. However, if your life circumstances change unexpectedly, options for having children include attempting vasectomy reversal, adoption, or pregnancy through artificial insemination, utilizing frozen stored sperm, fresh donor sperm, or sperm surgically extracted from the testes. It’s important to note that assisted fertility methods typically involve significant resource commitments and are often not covered by health insurance. These considerations should be weighed carefully before deciding on a vasectomy.

The DrSnip Vasectomy Technique: Our procedure is refined, effective, and minimally invasive. We do not use scalpels or needles for anesthesia. The entry point is so small that we completely numb the area using a hypospray device, delivering a tiny stream of lidocaine through the skin with pressure alone. Just two quick “pops,” one for each vas, and you are instantly and completely numb. We strive to achieve the most successful outcome while minimizing interference with surrounding tissues. Accessing both vas deferens through the same entry point eliminates the need for tissue removal or permanent clips.
