How to Prepare

Preparing for your Vasectomy

  • Discontinue any aspirin or NSAIDs (ibuprofen, advil, motrin, naproxen, or aleve) for 1 week prior to your vasectomy.  You may use acetaminophen (Tylenol) as a pain reliever in this week.
  • Thoroughly wash the scrotum on the day of your procedure.  
  • Shave the front of the scrotum on the morning of your vasectomy.  
  • Bring a pair of tight fitting underwear (briefs or an athletic supporter) to use after the procedure.  
  • Prepare two ice packs at home for use after the vasectomy.  Bags of frozen peas work well.  
  • Have a normal breakfast or lunch prior to your procedure. 
  • Take 1000mg of acetaminophen (2 tablets of extra strength Tylenol) 2 hours prior to your procedure.
  • Bring your favorite music and headphones for your smartphone.  
  • Relax.  The procedure will be much easier than you are expecting.
