About the operation
If your consideration and decision is not disputed is the sterilization of a man a single surgery. The operation is performed under local anesthesia through a small incision on each side of the scrotum at the top where the semen leaders close under the skin. The semen leaders laced together and cut through, so the sperm passage interrupted. It thus takes place via a very small incision, and a single thread of the skin, leaving a sufficient. The procedure lasts approx. half hours and immediately after you are ready for collection. The skin is sewn with threads that disappear by themselves within 3 weeks. Bed rest is advised during the first day, toileting excluded. Checks are carried out after 8-10 days, and further verification is usually not necessary. Even though it may take up to several weeks after surgery, where you can still feel a little tense and sore testicles, which is still producing sperm. Also epididymis, which sits like a comb close to the testicles can be a little sore. They may also feels solid and rugged.

It is expected also to 1 in 1000 men still have sperm in the semen after three months. Is therefore one of the thousands, there is reason to consider whether the intervention has been insufficiently effective or whether it should be about. This illustrates how important sperm sample after three months. - Click the issue of contraception and protection against STDs >>
Reverse Vasectomy (Refertilization)
Vasectomy and Refertilization? Refertilization is a minimally invasive operation to reverse a vasectomy or to treat a post infectious obstruction of the seminal duct. Reverse Vasectomy surgery is not in the public system, and therefore can only take place in private hospitals and for its own account. The chance of becoming fertile again depends on how long it is between the two interventions, but are generally below 50%, but the chances can be assessed individually by a feasibility study. An example would be that there are men who have achieved fertility after nearly twenty years of sterility. Aside from the physical conditions that change over time, there is also, in many cases a chemical change after sterilization. Some begin to produce antibodies against their own sperm, which means reduced viability of sperm. The antibody concentration, one is able to measure the blood. The consequence is limited, the concentration of these antibodies usually falls when there is again created an outlet for sperm cells. There is no requirement for measurement of antibody concentration prior to a Refertilizations operation, but measurement may be by blood tests with your own doctor.
The surgical operation in order to obtain sterility is usually carried out in that the semen leaders identified through a small incision on each side of the penis slightly downstream of the root. Vas deferens are cut and closed with wire or metal clip. Possibly removing a section of each of the vas deferens and transmitted to the microscope, so that one can make sure that the vas deferens, which are truncated. Reverse Vasectomy (Refertilization surgery) must be restored the continuity of the vas deferens in such a way that the inner passage is kept at the seam. This process is difficult, since the inner diameter of the vas deferens is only about ½ mm. Reverse Vasectomy surgery outpatient under local anesthesia, but the procedure is considerably more complicated than sterilization.
