Post-op

  • Take it easy for the first 48 hours.  Do not lift heavy objects or undertake any strenuous activities for 10 days.
  • Take painkillers (Panadeine) as soon as the anaesthetic begins to wear off and take 1-2 tablets every 4 hours until pain eases.
  • Some ice may be applied to the area to help reduce swelling.
  • The dressing applied at the end of the procedure will fall off by itself. Shower as normal.
  • Keep wound clean and dry by applying antiseptic (e.g. Betadine, Savlon) to the wound following showering for 5 days.
  • No swimming for 7 days.
  • No ejaculations for 7 days.
  • You have been given a pathology request and instructions to have a post-vasectomy sperm count carried out at your local pathology in 3 months' time.
    The specimen should be delivered to the pathology laboratory within ½ an hour after collection. Please phone the Pathology centre before collection to confirm the timing of delivery, for the specimen.
    We will forward a letter or text message to you advising you of the results.
  • It is important to continue alternative contraception until this test has been performed and returned with a ‘0’ viable sperm count. In the event that this test shows “viable sperm” this test will then be repeated one month later to confirm that the operation was successful.
