How can a Northern Ireland resident get a vasectomy in Ireland?
You can call our clinic now, or complete an appointment request form, and we will confirm an appointment time – likely within a week or two. Our clinic offers rapid access to the latest vasectomy methods for men from Northern Ireland.
Is there any discomfort during the procedure?
Before the vasectomy, you will not need any sedatives. No-Scalpel No-Needle Vasectomy is virtually painless. Afterwards you will likely be sore for a couple of days and should take a mild painkiller. The discomfort is less with the no-scalpel technique because there is minimal injury to the tissues. You will receive detailed aftercare instructions.
How soon after my vasectomy can I go back to work?
You should not do any heavy physical labour for seven days after your vasectomy. If your job does not involve this kind of work, you can go back sooner. Many men have their vasectomy on Friday, so they can take it easy over the weekend and go back to work on Monday in Northern Ireland.
Will the vasectomy change me sexually?
The only thing that will change is that you will not be able to make your partner pregnant. Your body will continue to produce the hormones that make you a man. You will have the same amount of semen. Vasectomy won’t change your voice, beard, your muscles, your sex drive, your erections, or your climaxes. Some men say that without the worry of accidental pregnancy and the bother of other birth control methods, sex is more relaxed and enjoyable than before.
Will I be sterile right away?
No, after a vasectomy, there are always some active sperm in your system. It usually takes 4 months plus 25 ejaculations to clear them. You and your partner should use some other form of contraception until a semen test confirms that your semen is sperm free. You will be given semen test instructions after your vasectomy procedure.
Is No-Scalpel Vasectomy safe?
Most medical experts, including special panels convened by the National Institutes of Health and by the World Health Organization, have concluded that vasectomy is a safe and simple procedure. Vasectomy is surgery, and all surgery has some risks, such as bleeding and infection, but serious problems are uncommon.
