A vasectomy is a surgical procedure performed in males as a form of sterilization and permanent birth control. It is considered one of the safest and most effective means of birth control. Over 500,000 men in North America choose vasectomies. Vasectomies are 99.6% effective according to current research.
How The Y Factor Can Help
The Y Factor uses the no-scalpel method of vasectomy. A local anesthetic is administered through a vapor spray administered into the skin. This no-needle method provides less discomfort and bruising.
The no-scalpel, no-needle method of vasectomy requires no incision. The vas deferens, which carry the sperm to the seminal vesicles, is resected through a small puncture site.
Most procedures are performed only with local anesthetic, however nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available.

A vasectomy reversal is a procedure when the cut or resected ends of the vas deferens are reattached. These reconnected segments allow the sperm to enter and ejaculate. This is a specialized microsurgery performed in a surgical setting.
