What To Expect at DrSnip
Vasectomy is a milestone life event.
We're here every step of the way.
Before Your Appointment
We’re available to answer any questions you have. You can also review our FAQs and our DrSnip Info Guide. Whatever your question, just give us a call or use the contact form on the Contact Us page.
We will also check your insurance for you and provide you with an estimate any out-of-pocket costs you may have. We do this before even scheduling your appointment so that you have piece of mind before committing to your procedure.
Day of Your Procedure
When you arrive for your appointment, come on in! Our Greeter will complete your check-in process. Your visit will last up to 90 minutes, depending on if you’re having a consultation, procedure, or both.
During your consultation, we will discuss vasectomy, what to expect during the procedure, and provide you with your after-care instructions. We’ll also answer any questions you have and make sure you have all the information needed to make your decision. The doctor will always confirm your decision before starting the procedure.
Afterward, we’ll make you comfortable while you wait for your ride. When it arrives, we will walk you to your car and remind you to stay off your feet the rest of the day. You should go straight home and rest.
After Your Appointment
In most cases, healing will occur uneventfully. Following our After Care instructions and understanding your limits will help ensure a full and quick recovery. This will also minimize the risk of complications.
Your doctor will check in with you the day after your procedure. After that, your doctor is still available to you for any questions or if you require care. All DrSnip doctors are on call 24/7 for their patients.
Complete Your Semen Testing
Completing your semen test is the only way to confirm your vasectomy was successful. Testing will be completed after at least 8 weeks and 15 ejaculations. (Waiting longer than eight weeks and greater than 15 ejaculations will increase your chance of a successful semen result on the first test.)
DrSnip uses a mail-in testing service to complete your semen testing. We will discuss option this with you during your consultation. We will facilitate the entire testing process and your kit will arrive at your home after about 8 weeks. If you prefer to use an alternative testing option, we will help coordinate this with you.
