Dr Sheehan’s has years of experience and will do everything to minimise any complications, however, all surgical procedures carry an element of risk. Your consent form will detail all of the relevant risks, the most prominent of which can be: Bruising that will usually disappear after about a week Mild pain and swelling that will decrease a few days after your procedure. A less common complication can include a large bruise within the scrotum, however you can reduce your chances of this by avoiding any lifting of heavy objects in the days after your procedure. If this is necessary for the type of work you do, you will require some time off work.
It is very important to note that the vasectomy procedure does not work immediately. You must continue to use other forms of contraception and consider yourself fertile until our team has confirmed to you that your procedure is successful and you can stop using alternative contraceptives. This confirmation will involve a semen analysis at the three-month mark to confirm that you are sterile. The reason for this is that it is possible for some remaining sperm to exist within the tubes post procedure; which will require time for your body to “clean out the pipes”.
In most cases it is fine to resume sexual activity after about one week. This can differ based on your individual healing ability, so we recommend taking it slow, and it is vitally important to remember to continue other forms of contraception until we have given you the all-clear.
At this stage we only offer vasectomy under local anaesthetic. For sedation or general anaesthetic we recommend you obtain a referral to a urologist.
Vasectomies have a high success rate, typically over 99%. When you choose Queensland Vasectomy, you are opting for a team that prides itself on its meticulous approach to each procedure, which contributes to the successful outcomes.

While a vasectomy is one of the most effective forms of contraception, no method is 100% effective. However, a vasectomy has a success rate of over 99%. We strive for the highest standard of service to provide you with optimal results.
A vasectomy can relieve the stress and worry of an unplanned pregnancy and could potentially enhance a couple’s sexual relationship. It is important to discuss this decision with your partner before proceeding with the surgery.
While vasectomy reversal procedures exist, they are more complex and not always successful. Therefore, a vasectomy should be considered a permanent decision. We advise all patients to be sure about their decision before proceeding.
Yes, a vasectomy procedure only blocks sperm – it doesn’t affect the prostate or seminal vesicles that produce the bulk of the ejaculate. Therefore, you will still be able to ejaculate as usual after the surgery.
The procedure itself takes only around 15 minutes. But to provide you full care and confidence, appointments are booked for approximately 45 minutes, allowing you to minimise time away from work.
You can drive yourself home after the procedure.
Once you have had your vasectomy and paid for it, we will process your Medicare rebate on your behalf. You will usually receive your payment into the bank account you have nominated with Medicare within 48 hours. If you have not received the payment 1 week after your vasectomy please contact us.

However, it’s important to remember that responses to medical procedures vary from person to person. Some men might experience light-headedness or dizziness immediately following the procedure. If you faint during blood tests, we recommend arranging for someone to drive you home if possible, just as a precaution.
In general, most men find they’re able to return to their usual activities, including driving, soon after the procedure. We’re committed to your well-being and will give you specific aftercare instructions to help ensure a comfortable and quick recovery.
The answer to this question really depends on the type of work you do. If your work involves manual labour, it is vital that you do not lift anything heavy for the first week. If, on the other hand, you work in an office, you can often go straight back to work. A medical certificate can be provided by our team if you require one to stay home longer.
No, a vasectomy does not affect your testosterone levels, sexual drive, or ability to perform sexually. These are common misconceptions that our team at Queensland Vasectomy is ready to dispel.
A vasectomy is generally considered a safe procedure with minimal long-term health risks. However, like any medical procedure, complications can occur, although they are infrequent. These can be discussed during your consultation at Queensland Vasectomy.
