Vasectomy: Is A Driver Necessary?
Most men can have a vasectomy without having a driver take them home.
The no-needle procedure provides quick and effective anesthesia. Patients experience very little pain during the no-scalpel vasectomy procedure. As a result most patients do very well without the need for any anxiety reducing medication.
Most men will be able to dress themselves and confidently walk out of the procedure room.
Who needs a driver?
If you have a history of fainting, extreme fear of needles/pain, severe anxiety, history of sexual abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, or are just ‘overly worked up’ about having a vasectomy procedure then we would advise you bring a person with you who can drive you home.
Often the patients who are the easy fainters know who they are and they often know when to allow someone to accompany them to their procedures.
