The vasectomy procedure is performed under a local or general anaesthetic. The operation usually takes about a quarter of an hour. Your surgeon will make two cuts on each side of your scrotum or just a single cut in the middle of your scrotum. They will cut the tubes that carry sperm from each testicle to your penis and then close the ends.
After a vasectomy
You should be able to go home the same day and your testicles will probably ache for the first few days. You should be able to return to work after a couple of days. However, if your work involves strenuous physical activity, you may need to stay off work for about a week.
