Looking for a stress-free service that won’t break the bank (or your balls)? Check out Marie Stopes, Australia’s largest independently accredited vasectomy provider.

Turns out, there’s more to being a man than the state of your vas deferens. Whatever your reason for getting a vasectomy – whether it’s about taking responsibility of contraception so your partner can have a break, or protecting yourself with the most effective contraception option available to you, or simply peace of mind – it’s sure to change your life (for the better) in one quick, 15-minute procedure.

Yep, it only takes around 15 minutes! A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure that redirects sperm, so that instead of being ejaculated with semen, they’re reabsorbed by your body.

And where better to get your vasectomy than with Marie Stopes, the leading name in reproductive healthcare? Their doctors perform vasectomies using only the most modern, effective and safe procedures – the no scalpel, open-ended method – with technologies that have been approved for use in Australia.

Their painless anaesthetic delivery technique is the benchmark in vasectomy procedures, and has been pioneered by lead vasectomist Dr Justin Low. The technique has been found to reduce sensations of pain caused by the local anaesthetic needle for most patients, with 79% experiencing less pain than expected or no pain at all. And, most Marie Stopes clinics offer the option of IV sedation for your comfort.

Worried you won’t be able to afford your vasectomy? Marie Stopes’ accreditation and licensing means they are one of the few vasectomy providers able to offer private health insurance claiming to patients, and most of their clinics are eligible for private health rebates for vasectomy procedures. They also cap their prices so there are no nasty surprises – isn’t that what you want to hear about your vasectomy?

If you’re concerned that a vasectomy will affect your masculinity, testosterone levels or sex life, don’t be! Studies by Stanford University found that men who had a vasectomy had sex more frequently than their non-vasectomised counterparts, and research by Frankfurt University discovered that men who’d had the snip reported improved sexual satisfaction.

You can’t argue with that. Visit www.vasectomy.org.au for more information.
