Why don’t I have stitches on my vasectomy wound?

Marie Stopes UK carries out vasectomy by the no-scalpel (cautery) method, which essentially heat seals the sperm carry tubes. It requires no stitches to heal.

No stiches needed

As a result, it's normal for your wound to be treated using just a simple dressing. Read our aftercare advice for what to do after your vasectomy procedure.

We're here if you're worried about anything

Should you suspect your wound is infected – it may be very painful, red or hot – please contact us or your GP immediately. This should be easily remedied with antibiotics.
