Vasectomy Vs Iud
Either????????????: Lots to consider. Either is a very effective way for bc. If the man were to never want to father a child, then vasectomy. If the mother has issues and wold never want to birth a child, then essure. Speaks for itself. There are things to consider tho regarding who should have the procedure. I have patients who have had both? Contemplate heavily, act judiciously and be well informed. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

What is the most effective treatment for post vasectomy pain? Spermatocelectomy and epididymectomy.
Vasectomy in 1996.
Depends on severity: Usually, we recommend simple non-steroidal anti-inflammatory therapies like Ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) to be taken on an as-needed basis. If the pain is constant, make an appointment with the urologist or physician who performed the procedure. They may order an ultrasound to evaluate the anatomy. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tubal vs essure: They both provide permanent sterilization but the tubal requires general anesthesia and surgery into the abdomen with incisions that have to heal. It is immediately effective. An essure can be done in the office under a local cervical block and has no incisions. It takes about 3 months to become effective. You have to do a simple test at 3 months to prove the tubes are blocked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am considering a non-scalpel vasectomy vs. a conventional vasectomy. Are the reversal chances the same?
Same : I'm sorry to tell you that "non-scalpel" vasectomy is basically a marketing scam. it is not possible to perform a vasectomy without making some sort of puncture in the skin overlying the vas. How this puncture is made ( scalpel vs sharp pointed hemostat or scissors) is irrelevant to the outcome. ...Read more
PCOS, Endometriosis, Heavy Cycles, 33yo, tubal ligation 3 yrs ago. Would an endometrial ablation lessen my symptoms/cancer risks?
Maybe not: Endometrial cancer can be obscured by endometrial ablations if it is not ruled out prior to the procedure by biopsy. Many women continue to have bleeding post endometrial ablation procedures, and the most likely conclusive treatment is hysterectomy if you no longer desire children. ...Read more
Ques for a friend: menorrhagia, lots of cramps. Previous c-section, tubal ligation, no bc needed. Pros/cons IUD vs surgical removal of lining?
Maybe , maybe not: U can do a laparoscopic sterilization by cautery or clips or other ways, either way is old fashioned, the newer safer way that I do 99.9% of all my sterilizations on my patients is in office - adiana( for about another month, until i run out of catheters) or in office essure- both are easy, my pts stay awake , takes 5 minutes, no cutting, only miss 1/2 day of work, u can read about it online. ...Read more
Can you tell me about non scalpel vasectomy vs conventional vasectomy: reversal chances the same?
Same: How the puncture in the skin is made (to access the vas) is irrelevant to the success or complications of vasectomy. No matter how the procedure is marketed to anxious young males, a puncture must be made in the skin with some sort of sharp instrument. If you think you may EVER want the vasectomy reversed, you should not have a vasectomy. The best pregnancy rate of reversal is about 50%. ...Read more

Equally effective: These are both equally effective. There are quoted as over 99% effective.
