I had a vasectomy done and the surgeon was amazing I didn't feel a thing and no pain I was surprised to be told it was over. For any guy that would like to get a vasectomy I highly recommend getting it done here it's safe pain free done by an amazing friendly surgeon who has had it done as well and friendly nurses and staff. Thank you to team at Marie stopes Canberra

Great clinic, staff were extremely friendly, professional and have a brilliant bedside manner. I felt very comfortable throughout the experience. The appointment went smoothly. First I sat down for the pre-op chat with the nurse, it was very straightforward, they answered any questions I had and really put my mind at ease, then I got into my gown and had the small area you need shaved done (don't manscape yourself as any nick might count you out as it is an infection risk). After that it was off into the theatre. In theater the doctor (I had Dr Justin Low who was great and made me feel very comfortable and at ease) will get you all setup in the chair and give you a bedadine wash. Then came the local anaesthetic, at worst I felt the tiniest pinch and then nothing. The vasectomy itself is painless, the needle you get for an immunisation or donating blood hurts more, be preparred for the old block and tackle to be moved around and stretched a bit as the doc needs to move it around to get at what he needs to, but its very numb so you dont really feel anything much and Justin's bedside manner was brilliant so it didnt feel weird or awkward. Whole thing took about 12 minutes. Then the tiny little incision is sealed up and then your left to air out for 4 minutes (okay that part is a bit odd, but a few well timed ball puns helps the time go by). After theater you go into the post-op area where there is everthing you need to tidy up (bedadine kinda gets everywhere) and get changed along with a comfy chair and some well deserved snacks. Once your feeling up to it you can leave at your leisure. Overall the process is designed to make you feel as comfortable as possible and there is honestly very little pain at all.
UPDATE: its been about 5 days now since the vasectomy, there has been no issues, I get a little bit of discomfort like a very dull ache if ive been walking around for a while, that is easily addressed with panadol. Otherwise there have been no adverse effects and performance wise seems good to go. Pretty straightforward really.

Good doctor. Bad administration staff-As a result, my appointment at 2pm turned out to be an appointment at 4.15pm. My procedure was very quick (10 minutes max) thanks to the good quality doctor. The admin staff didn´t take good control of appointments and they only realised my file was missing when I got up to ask why I had not been called yet (maybe they had realised before but I had not been called at that point). . Admin staff apologised when I left.
