I have an appointment to help control the pain next Tuesday, but I'm getting really stressed and worried now. What can I do?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
Hello, I had a vasectomy last week. I have a painful "swelling" (mid-hard at palpation) like a small ball. Only my left testicle is sensitive and painful (right side is normal for now). I also feel some "tensions" in my lower abdomen and in my left leg too. When I'm not moving or sleeping it is ok, but when I'm walking it is painful and uncomfortable. Thank you in advance.

Can enough sperm be retrieved from the vas def 3 months post-vasectomy to perform an IUI?
My husband had a vasectomy in July 2019 and it was confirmed in October he is sterile. We’ve since decided we made a terrible mistake and we’d like 1 more child to complete our family. We don’t want a reversal but sperm aspiration to attempt IUI and not IVF. Is this possible? We’ve always gotten pregnant within 2 months of trying so there’s no female infertility factor. Thanks.

Can a short vas cause post-vasectomy complications?
Right vas is shorter than left (born that way). MD had trouble isolating right vas during initial consultation but said it could be done. A week after surgery, I experienced intense pain on right side of scrotum and incision began to bleed intermittently until a vas clip was expelled through the cut weeks later. I suspect it was clipped from right vas (which being shorter kept receding into the inguinal canal, thus triggering pain), causing the clip to separate from vas. Any thoughts?

What happened? What did he cut, and what are the possible side effects?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy done in April 2019; the doctor cut and burned the tubes. I ejaculated over the number of times recommended by the doctor and waited over 3 months for the last test of semen. Now the doctor wants to do a second surgery. What did he cut and burn then?

Is this not a hematoma after all?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I am 3 weeks post-vasectomy and have a baseball-sized hematoma on the left side. I also have a varicocele on the same side. It's painful to touch on the bottom of the left testicle where the varicocele is. It doesn't have the dark bruise color the doctor warned me about. Now I’m worried it’s a swollen testicle or some other issue.

What happens if you are celibate after a vasectomy?
Will you get an all-clear test if you wait long enough or do you absolutely have to ejaculate a certain amount of times? Wondering if the sperm will eventually just die in the vas deferens and therefore ejaculation is not necessary? I had my vasectomy in late November and only ejaculated 5-10 times after but since February have decided to be celibate. I have not yet been tested to make sure that I am clear.

I have inflammation within my scrotum 1 year after a successful vasectomy. Could a clip have come loose, causing this problem?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy a year ago and all has been well. In the last few days, there has been inflammation within my scrotum. The inflammation doesn't appear to be one of the testicles, but I am additionally having fevers and am really tired. Could a clip have come loose, causing this problem?

Has my vasectomy failed? I had the procedure in December 2018 and semen analysis shows I'm still not sterile.
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy performed in December 2018. As of my last monthly semen analysis in August 2019, I am still not sterile. My urologist wants to continue semen analysis with the belief that everything has yet to clear out. My July semen analysis was the only negative sperm result. August was positive again. Ejaculation count for non-sterile June analysis was ~35 and July was ~45. Assuming a normal 30 ejaculations a month, I am over 200 since the procedure. Looking for a welcomed second opinion.

Is recanalization/failure possible after a vasectomy?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a bilateral close-ended vasectomy in 2011. During the procedure, I had 1cm of vas from each side removed and the ends were ligated, cauterized, and the fascial sheath interposed between the ends of the vas. I want to know if recanalization is possible with this technique and if so, should I be worried about failure?

I waited one week after my vasectomy to ejaculate. Hardly anything came out and it felt like there was pressure or a blockage in my testicles. Is that
Vasectomy - 1 answer
It's been 7 days since my vasectomy. Today I tried masturbation and during the climax, hardly anything came out. In fact, it felt like there was a pressure build-up in the testicles. I'm worried if I try again something could burst and leak. Should I be concerned?
