Considering a vasectomy 

Vasectomy is a quick, safe, and effective method of contraception. As vasectomy is a permanent contraceptive method and cannot easily be reversed, you should take some time to think about your decision and make sure it is the right one for you.  

You should only proceed if you are certain you don’t want to have any, or anymore, children. We are here to support your choice. 

What is a vasectomy? 

Vasectomy is a quick, safe, and effective method of contraception. It is a minor procedure which takes about 15 minutes and seals the tube (vas deferens) which carries sperm. This will prevent sperm entering your semen, which is the fluid ejaculated during sex. 

MSI UK vasectomy care 

Before you make the decision to have a vasectomy, we recommend you find out all the details about the procedure, so you make an informed choice. 

At MSI UK, our vasectomy services include: 

  • A consultation with one of our healthcare professionals to discuss what happens on the day of your vasectomy procedure and to talk through your medical history   
  • The vasectomy procedure (our expert surgeons use the non-scalpel technique) 
  • A 24-hour aftercare line to support you during your recovery 
  • A semen testing service 16 weeks after your procedure  
  • Vasectomy counselling appointments are also available should you wish to talk to someone at any point before, during or after your treatment 

Our teams provide NHS-funded vasectomy care and private vasectomy care in friendly and relaxing clinics. Our services are completely confidential. We will not let anyone know about your appointment with us, without your permission to do so.  

We do not refuse anyone an appointment because of their age, marital status, or because they have no children. We also understand that not all of our clients will identify as a man. We welcome and support people of all gender identities to access vasectomy services when they choose.

Vasectomy counselling

If you would like to talk to someone impartial before you make your decision, we can arrange vasectomy counselling for you. Our counsellors give confidential, non-judgemental support. Talking about your decision can also help you to make sure that a vasectomy is the right choice for you.  

For most of our clients, counselling is an optional part of their vasectomy treatment. We do ask those that are under 25 years old to speak to one of our trained counsellors before making their final decision. 

If you would like to have vasectomy counselling before you make your decision, you can call us anytime to make an appointment.
