Metrocentre Open-Ended Vasectomy Procedures offer Men Closure for Post-Op Sexual Concerns

Metrocentre-Open-Ended-Vasectomy-Procedures-offer-Men-Closure

The Vasectomy has long been associated with the myth that it lower sex drives, reduces sexual pleasure and decreases penis size which has caused some men to dismiss it as a contraceptive option…

A common fear amongst men is undergoing a vasectomy procedure or ‘the snip’ which will cause them to lose their masculinity and their ‘manhood’. This is simply not true.

Metrocentre has locations on the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and perform hundreds of open-ended vasectomies throughout the year with patients leaving satisfied with their decision and retained masculinity. We find that men avoid getting vasectomies because they do not want to risk losing their masculinity but the vasectomy procedure involves interrupting the vas deferens in order to stop sperm from travelling from the testicles to the urethra. It does not involve removing the testicles, shortening the penis and the open-ended procedure does not interrupt testosterone production.

Misinformation causes fear and at Metrocentre we are here to confirm that a vasectomy is not the same as castration…

Castration is the act of removing the testicles from the body and is completely different to a vasectomy. The act of castration abolishes the production of testosterone in the body and is commonly used to control animal populations and aggressive sexual behaviour animals such as cats, dogs and even livestock. Testosterone is a predominantly masculine hormone that is prevalent in both males and females. This hormone influences (among others) the ability to think, moods, sense of vitality, sexual drive/libido and aids in the development and strength of muscle cells.

In humans, castration is not used as a contraceptive option but is used to help men who are facing medical difficulties, undergoing sex changes or experiencing complications. Problems such as testicular cancer, genetic complications and the inability to produce healthy sperm are examples of needing castration and in the past men who were castrated were referred to as Eunuchs, they were of religious or political prevalence.

Abstinence is the only 100% fool-proof method of avoiding unintended pregnancies but it takes sexual intimacy off the table…

Choosing not to have sex is the best way to prevent pregnancy but sex is one of the most natural and beautiful ways to allow two people to connection at a physical and emotional level and sexual intimacy has its health benefits. Not only is sexual intimacy a great stress reliever it can actually:

  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Boost your immune system
  • Burn calories
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Boost self-esteem
  • Lowers risk of Prostate Cancer
  • Strengthens pelvic floor muscles
  • Better sleep patterns
  • Releases endorphins leaving you feeling happy, pain free and satisfied

Today, the vasectomy procedure is one of the most efficient and safest forms of contraception available to males and gives men another option to have sex without fear of pregnancy. Over the last century contraception has been mainly targeted towards women, and today there is a huge variety of pills, accessories, procedures and options available to women. This puts a lot of pressure on women to provide contraception and does not leave men with many options to work with.

There are contraceptive options that take responsibility from both parties which are one of the most popular methods available today – The condom. The condom is truly one of the most efficient ways to prevent pregnancies and STI’s but unfortunately condoms do hinder pleasure in some men and women and they do have a failure rate. That is why surgical options such as vasectomies are a preferred option when other forms of contraception are no longer an option because they have a lower risk of pregnancy than condoms, and does not affect pleasure during intimacy. The only difference between condoms and surgical procedures is that there is no protection against STI’s when solely relying on surgical options.

By eliminating the fear of unintended pregnancies most men find their sex life improves…

A vasectomy procedure is one of the safest ways to have sexual intercourse without the risk of unintended pregnancies and by investing in this procedure you can make a difference to not only your life, but the life of your partner and your family. Without the fear of unintended pregnancies most men find that their sex lives improve because without the fear, they are able to enjoy themselves better during intimacy.

At Metrocentre we ensure that all of our patients are 100% satisfied and confident in the procedure beforehand by debunking post-op sexual concerns…

The only difference to the male sex life is that his sperm will be infertile and sterile when he ejaculates. After the procedure the testicles will continue to produce sperm but because the connection between the testicles and seminal vesicles and prostate will no longer be connected the sperm will not mix with the ejaculate fluid. This seminal fluid makes up about 95% of the ejaculate and so men who have undergone a vasectomy may not notice any difference in the volume of ejaculate.
