Planning for a Vasectomy

You're ready to have a vasectomy. Here the information you'll need to plan for The Snip.


With Insurance

The majority of health insurances cover an in-office vasectomy. To find out if yours does, call the 800 number on your insurance card, or contact our insurance and billing department. (Be sure to provide your policy number and group ID.)

Without Insurance

If you don't have insurance, the cost at Urology San Antonio is $800. That includes the vasectomy and the follow-up semen check.

$100 Deposit

Whether you have insurance or not, you’ll need to pay a $100 deposit when you book the appointment. The deposit minimizes “no shows” and keeps appointments available for guys who are serious about having a vasectomy. After the procedure, the deposit will be applied toward your balance or refunded to you.

Recovery Time

Most men schedule their vasectomy on a Thursday or a Friday afternoon. They recover over the weekend and go back to desk work on Monday. If you have a job that keeps you on your feet, plan to take 2 days off, followed by 3 days of light duty.

You can resume sex in 3 days, but use protection because a vasectomy isn't effective immediately. It takes 2-3 months for the pipes to clear. When it’s time, drop off a semen sample, and your doctor will call you with the results.
