Brief Answer:
Minimally invasive type

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

There are two types of Vasectomy performed in nowadays.

Conventional vasectomy
No-scalpel vasectomy /Minimally invasive vasectomy

You can go for Minimally invasive type, this involves making of smaller incisions which not even require suturing. Healing is good and there are very minimal complications.

There are failures with any contraceptive methods. Even vasectomy has failure rate at 0.1%. None give 100% result.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Regards,

You may have to get blood tests to rule out infections and bleeding disorders. Like Complete blood count, Bleeding time and Clotting time

The surgeon who performs the tests will surely advice on the previous day preparations. He would be the right person to advice on the same.

Brief Answer:
not necessarily

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

There is no necessary for abstinence from work or routine physical exercise.

Considering post op status of a invasive procedure, I would recommend to stop playing for 2 to 3 days. This would suffice.
