Did you know? Vasectomies are one of the safest, most effective means of birth control. In fact, vasectomies are 99.6% effective according to current research. With these types of statistics, you might wonder why more men aren’t having vasectomies. The truth is men are often interested in having a vasectomy, but the idea of having needles and scalpels in such a sensitive area puts many men off.
What men don’t realize is that The Y Factor’s approach is less invasive, and less painful compared to the normal vasectomy procedure. Our no-scalpel, no-needle approach is a 10 minute in-office procedure that requires no incision under local anesthesia. Our patients usually rate the amount discomfort on a 1-2 range, and this discomfort lasts only about sixty seconds.
Other reasons men choose vasectomies are that they are relatively affordable compared to other contraceptive surgeries, they are reversible, and the recovery is very manageable. Typically, patients are able to return to work 24-36 hours after the procedure.
Our offices are currently offering FREE Initial Vasectomy Consults during the month of October. So if you have considered having a vasectomy in the past, but you are concerned about the procedure or you have questions, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation. In your initial session, we will share detailed information regarding the procedure, and answer all your questions and concerns to determine whether this procedure is right for you.
