Prescription Blood Thinners Before Vasectomy

Prescription blood thinning medication is often prescribed to patients who have a medical history significant for heart attack, atrial fibrillation, heart valve replacement, stroke, previous deep venous blood clot, organ transplant, and other serious conditions.

Although aspirin minimally increases the risk of bleeding, prescription blood thinning medication greatly increase the risk of bleeding during a surgical procedure. Prescription blood thinning medications can be taken by mouth or by injection.

Common prescription blood thinning medications include but are not limited to; coumadin, warfarin, clopiogrel, plavix, pletal,trental, lovenox, fragmin, delteparin, enoxaprin, and others.

By no means is the above a complete list but most patients who are on prescription blood thinners are aware of their medications and the increased risk during surgery.

Stopping Blood Thinners Before Vasectomy

Patients should not stop their prescription blood thinners without the advice of their physicians. In some cases stopping these medications can pose more risk than vasectomy.

For some of these men, safer alternatives may exist in female sterilization or reversible female birth control.

Prescription Blood Thinners

If you are on prescription blood thinners you will need a vasectomy consultation appointment before your procedure and you should not stop these medications without discussing with your doctor.

"Dr. Monteith prepared me mentally for the pre, during and post procedure journey. He also provided me with all the tools necessary for a comfortable recovery. I'm definitely confident in this Dr's work, and especially glad at how little pain I experienced throughout the process. It would be worth it to visit Dr. Monteith no matter what state you have to travel from, I drove from Virginia."

"Very comforting and knowledgeable experience not only was the staff pleasant so was the atmosphere! I drove 3 hours so i did my research. I was impressed with the information, visuals, and on hand knowledge about what the procedure was all about. I felt like an expert after i left! Not to mention the 45 min in and out time. I will be recommending this to all my colleagues thank you!"

"Dr Monteith, and his staff, were all very professional about my decision to have a vastectomy. They informed me of the risks, the surgery procedure, and the post-surgery care. The procedure itself was relatively painless. I would rate this as a 2/10. I highly recommend Dr Monteith; he even sent me a text message after the surgery to give me a personal update on my procedure. The procedure was quick."

"Excellent care. I visited Dr. Monteith for a single visit appointment on a Friday. Very clean, comfortable office. Pleasant staff. The procedure was quick and I went back to work for a little while. The only pain I experienced was soreness beginning about 4 hours post procedure, lasting for 24 hours, then subsiding rapidly. I was fine by Monday. The office checked on me twice, no problems. I would recommend Dr. Monteith to anyone.

- M.D.
