What happens during the procedure?

No special physical preparation is required. Wash yourself thoroughly and put on clean, snug underwear or an athletic supporter (jock strap) before your appointment. Do not take aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medication (such as Nuprin, Advil, Motrin) for 10 days before the procedure. Such medication can increase the risk of bleeding with vasectomy. The physician will first assess the patient's general health in order to identify any potential problems that could occur. The doctor will then explain possible risks and side effects. The patient is asked to sign a consent form which indicates that he understands the information he has received, and gives the doctor permission to perform the operation.
