Vasectomy in India starts from 800-1000 USD. The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.
Vasectomy is a procedure for male sterilization. It is a surgical procedure. It is an effective method to prevent pregnancy as a vasectomy is more than 99% effective. During this procedure, the doctor cuts the tube that carries sperm.
Testicles form the sperms. From the testicles, these sperms, through epididymis and vas deferens, reach the urethra. From the urethra, it exits the body. If the sperms ejaculate while having sexual intercourse, they travel through the female reproductive system and fertilize an egg resulting in pregnancy.
During a vasectomy, the doctor either cuts or seals the vas deferens. This results in the blocking of the sperms from exiting out of the body. Although the reversal of vasectomy is possible in some cases, it is usually considered a permanent procedure. Thus, you must be sure about undergoing this procedure. It is a cost-effective method in comparison to the female sterilization or long-term cost of precautionary measures such as condoms and birth control medications. However, it is important to note that as this procedure does not reduce the risk of sexually transmitted disease, the doctor may advise you to use condoms during sexual intercourse.
Vasectomy does not affect your ability to perform sexual activities. It does not lower your sex drive and does not lower your testosterone levels. Vasectomy has no effect on ejaculation, erection, and climax during sexual intercourse.
