Just What the Doctor Ordered

In your world, March is associated with one thing—basketball.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had doctor’s orders just to sit on the couch and watch some quality college basketball? That, gentlemen, would not be a treatment plan you failed to follow.

Okay, okay—we’re not actually going to give you a medical release form to excuse you from work, nor are we going to prescribe treatment in the form of couch-sitting, basketball-watching, bracket-filling March Madness for no reason. However, this will be exactly what you’ll be doing (at least for a few days!) if you come to the conclusion that a vasectomy is right for you. Since most men who have the procedure experience some mild aching in the area, regular activities are typically resumed within a few days of surgery. This makes for the perfect opportunity to take in a little of that college basketball goodness—doctor’s orders!

Yet, having a vasectomy is a very big decision, especially since the effects are as final as the remaining four teams in your bracket. Vasectomies are one of the most successful forms of permanent birth control with a 99.85 percent success rate. When compared to tubal litigation in women, this procedure is both safer and less expensive. While this birth control method is technically reversible, an important thing to re-emphasize is that a vasectomy should only be considered when a couple is sure they are done having children and after ample discussion—reversals are not 100 percent successful, and they definitely aren’t cheap.

If you and your partner have come to the decision that your family roster is full, it might be time to make a few “cuts.” When considering a vasectomy, it is important to meet with an urologist to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure, or if you should pursue a different form of contraception. Our Lakeview Urology and Ogden Internal Medicine & Urology Clinics specialize in these procedures. Dr. Samuel Otto, Urologist, and Dr. David J. Henderson, Urologist, have comprehensive experience in performing vasectomies. Currently, these facilities are accepting new patients and holding consultations throughout the week.
