Vasectomy Consultations

Vasectomy In Glasgow

If you are considering a vasectomy consultation, here are some things you need to know. A vasectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed on men as a form of permanent birth control. During the procedure, the vas deferens, which are the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra, are cut, blocked, or sealed. This prevents sperm from being released during ejaculation and thus reduces the chances of fertilization of a partner’s egg.Vasectomy La Belle Forme Glasgow Day Surgery Centre

Vasectomy is typically an outpatient procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. It is a safe and effective method of birth control and does not affect a man’s sexual function or libido. However, it is important to note that a vasectomy should be considered a permanent form of birth control, and while reversal procedures are available, they are not always successful. Therefore, it is important to carefully consider all options before deciding to undergo a vasectomy.

Advantages of a vasectomy

  • the failure rate is very low 1 in 2,000
  • it does not affect your hormone levels or sex drive
  • it will not affect the spontaneity of sex or interfere with sex
  • it is a simpler, safer, and more reliable alternative to female sterilisation

Urology Explained

What urologists do and when you should consider seeing one

What is Urology?

Urology is the field of medicine that deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra). The field also deals with diagnosing and treating matters concerning the male reproductive tract (penis, testes, scrotum, prostate, etc.)

What is a Urologist?

Urologists diagnose and treat diseases of the urinary tract in both men and women. Some examples of conditions a urologist can treat include: urinary tract infections (UTIs), kidney stones, bladder and prostate cancer, urinary incontinence, infertility, erectile dysfunction, and other conditions affecting the urinary and reproductive systems.

What Procedures Can a Urologist Perform?

When visiting a urologist, they may use a variety of diagnostic techniques such as urinalysis, blood tests, ultrasounds, and biopsies to evaluate and diagnose conditions of the urinary and reproductive systems.

They are also trained to perform several types of surgery. These may include:

  • Cystectomy (the surgical removal of the bladder to treat cancer)
  • Prostatectomy (the surgical removal of the prostate gland to treat prostate cancer)
  • Vasectomy (a surgical procedure to cut or seal the tubes that carry a man’s sperm to permanently prevent pregnancy)
  • Circumcision (the surgical removal of the foreskin)

When Should You See a Urologist?

Your primary GP may be able to treat some minor urologic issues like a UTI, but if issues persist, it is probably time to see a urologist for diagnosis and treatment. If you know your symptoms or condition involve the urinary tract or male reproductive system, you may choose to see a urologist as your first step. Symptoms you should consider seeing a urologist for include:

  • Blood in your urine
  • Feeling a frequent or urgent need to urinate
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Weak urine flow, dribbling

You should also see a urologist if you’re a man and you’re experiencing these symptoms:

  • Lumps in the testicle
  • Trouble getting or keeping an erection

Urologists work closely with other healthcare providers, such as oncologists and gynecologists, to provide comprehensive care to their patients.

La Belle Forme will be offering urology consultations and treatment from May 25th 2023. These services will be provided by Consultant Urological Surgeon, Mr Alistair McKay. Enquire today to find out more.
