Find Vasectomy Reversal & Vasectomy Clinics »

Mostly, for men seeking a vasectomy, the NHS will offer this service free of charge. You will be put on a waiting list and the time you need to wait will depend on your location within the UK. The NHS may have reservations about performing surgery on anyone who is 25-35 years of age for this type of procedure as the rate of wanting a reversal in the future is very high for this age category.

The benefits or getting a vasectomy through the NHS is that the entire procedure will be free of any costs and you will always be operated on by trained and accredited professionals. If you are interested in getting a vasectomy and you want more information or you want to start the ball rolling, visit your local doctor or GP for advice. If he thinks that you are a good candidate and your reasoning behind wanting a vasectomy is good, he may refer you on your initial meeting.

If you decide the waiting list in your area is too long, a vasectomy is a very cheap and simple procedure, leading many people to turn to private healthcare.
