No-Scalpel Vasectomy


Wellbeing offers the No-Scalpel Vasectomy service from our Tollgate Clinic in Colchester, Essex. This vasectomy procedure is a popular, reliable and easy method of permanent contraception, which does not require an overnight stay in hospital.


If you are certain that you do not want to father children in the future and would like a permanent method of contraception, you might like to consider our No-Scalpel Vasectomy service.

The no-scalpel method is a newer and now regularly performed clinical procedure. Our highly skilled doctors will use a special instrument, rather than a scalpel, to make a tiny hole in the skin of the scrotum in order to reach your vas deferens tubes (the tubes that carry the sperm from the testicles) and seal them to prevent sperm from being ejaculated.

Wellbeing uses this method as it is proven to cause less discomfort and requires no stitches, allowing for faster recovery compared to the traditional vasectomy method. The appointment for the procedure is 30 minutes long after which you can return home. 

Doctor talking to patient

After the procedure

Following the procedure you may feel some soreness for a few days, which can be relieved by taking pain killers. You will typically need 48 hours' rest after the vasectomy, after which you will be able to return to work. If your work involves a lot of manual heavy lifting, you may need to take a full week to recover.

You will not become sterile immediately following your vasectomy, meaning that you and your partner will need to use another form of birth control until your semen has been tested (after 16 weeks). At your appointment we will provide you with the necessary information regarding a Post Vasectomy Semen Test. You do not need to come back to the clinic for the semen test, your semen sample is sent straight to the lab for testing, after which we will call you to discuss the results.

Customer Feedback...

  • My Mum attended A&E on Sunday as she was feeling dizzy and unwell.  She had a thorough check over and was discharged but told that her ears were blocked.  She attended her GP on Monday who could not help, I phoned Wellbeing on Tuesday morning and was able to an appointment with Jo later that day and it has made a huge improvement for her. Many thanks.

    I'd been putting off going to my GP for a very long time but when my wife mentioned Wellbeing and that I could get an appointment the same week I thought I might as well go for it. I'm so glad I did, my Wellbeing Audiologist was so knowledgeable and took the time to explain both the Microsuction procedure and my condition to me. Understanding why my ears give me so much trouble also put my mind at rest, which has made me a lot happier

  • The speed of service, the professionalism shown and the care taken to assess my injuries were second to none. The advice given by Wellbeing helped vastly speed up my recovery and the ongoing support has been invaluable.

    Thank you for seeing and assessing me so promptly. You really put my mind at ease and prevented an unnecessary trip to the GP which as it turns out would not have yielded any benefit or sorted out the problem I came to you about.
    Happy Customer, Chelmsford
  • I found your service thorough and professional. Additionally, I was really delighted to be able to have the time to discuss fully the issues with such an experienced professional. Indeed, following the assessment the advice and treatment you recommended appear to have sorted out a long term problem that was getting worse and causing me increasing pain and discomfort. Many thanks.
