Vasectomy : UK clinics and services

Vasectomy in the UK

If you would like to learn about vasectomy male sterilisation, and the availability and cost of vasectomy, the following information will be of interest.


A vasectomy (male sterilisation) operation involves the cutting or sealing of the vas deferens which carries sperm from the testes to the penis. After a vasectomy procedure the semen which is produced at ejaculation is normal but does not contain any sperm. Sterilisation by vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure which can be carried out under a local anaesthetic, and takes about 10 minutes to perform.


It is possible to have a vasectomy reversal, but you should bear in mind that the success rate is less than 50%.
