There are three types of vasectomies in the UK: vasectomy (removal of the cervix), tubal ligation (removing the tubes that keep the cervicium in place) and hysterectomy (cleaning out the uterus).
It is worth knowing whether the procedure you want to do is right for you and your family.
A vasectomy involves removing the entire vas deferens (the tube that carries sperm from the testicles to the egg) and inserting a piece of metal called a vas defluter into the hole to hold the vas deficient tissue together.
This is done to prevent the sperm from getting too far inside the tube and causing a blockage.
It also prevents sperm from passing through the sperm sac, which prevents the sperm entering the female reproductive system.
There are a few things you need to know before you get a Vasectomy.
First, it is a complicated procedure, with many different options and treatments available.
For most men, there are two types of a vasectomectomy.
The first involves removing all the vasculature of the vasocelastoid, the tube that goes from the tip of the penis to the cervicle.
In the second, a tube is inserted into the cervicular opening.
When a vasopelvic injection is used, the vasopluster (a type of capillary) is removed and a hole is left in the membrane of the uterus that is filled with fluid.
These types of surgery are referred to as hystelloscopic vasectomy and they can be done with a local anaesthetic or an electric anaesthetic.
The operation can take up to a week to complete.
It is important to remember that some men may need to go through additional surgery.
Tubal ligidectomy: This procedure involves removing two tubes that attach to the ovaries, the fallopian tubes and the tubes used to deliver the eggs into the womb.
Usually a tube will be placed into the vagina.
During the procedure, a metal needle is inserted through the opening and into the uterus to make sure there is no blockage of the tubes.
The doctor will then use a scalpel to remove the tubes from the vagina and attach the remaining tube to the uterus.
After a period of four weeks, a woman will be able to conceive.
Cervical cancer treatment: There are two kinds of cervical cancer treatments: oophorectomy and cisplatin.
The procedure is similar to a vasepelvic or hystereoctomy, but involves removing a tube in the cervice that is not connected to the womb and inserting it into the fallovac.
A woman will then have to undergo a two- to four-week treatment period.
Lifelong ovulation is the key to preventing cervical cancer.
A woman who has had her ovaries removed or has had surgery to remove a small portion of her ovary will not get cervical cancer if they are in good health and continue to get regular checks over the next 20 years.
If you are planning to get married or have children and want to avoid getting a vasovasectomy, you may want to consider having a hysteloscopic or cisplatine procedure.
This type of vasectomy requires the removal of all of the surrounding tissues, including the uterine cervix.
This is known as a hystaecomastectomy and is the procedure of choice for women with ovarian cancer.
Other types of procedures that may be performed include hystoraxectomy, hystrocystectomy and cystectomy.
