Is it possible to father a child 22 years after a vasectomy?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy 22 years ago. My girlfriend recently told me she is pregnant and I am the father. I've already scheduled a semen analysis. Procedure notes indicate a section of vas removed, tied, stapled and burned. I had no problems with my ex-wife. Girlfriend states that on vacation she became pregnant with my child. Odds seem very remote. If the semen analysis comes back with a sperm count of ZERO, does this still mean I could possibly be the father?

I think my vasectomy incision is infected. Do I need to go to the ER or should I wait until Wednesday when my urologist opens?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy about 17 days ago. I recently noticed a lump at the incision site. If I press it, white pus comes out. I also noticed yellow and red drainage in my shorts. There is no fever and I feel very little pain. The bump does seem to be getting smaller as it drains.

I had a vasectomy about a week ago. I still have significant pain. Is this normal?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
The pain locations are at the base of the shaft of my penis, pinpointed on either side, about where the scrotum and pelvis meet. It comes and goes. I also get pain on either testicle (on the right more often than the left) that feels like something is gently scraping against the testicle on the inside of my scrotum. This is the more significant pain, and can vary from feeling like someone flicked or poked me, to a hit that makes me catch my breath. Is this normal?

I have been on medicine for 2 days and my testicle is still rock hard and 3x its normal size. What should I do?
I had a vasectomy 7 days ago. By the time I saw my urologist on post-op day 5, my left testicle was extremely swollen and bruised. He said I have higher than normal bruising/swelling and a varicocele but was not overly concerned. He prescribed Nabumetone 500 mg 2x a day. He did not feel I was infected. I have been on the medicine for 2 days and my testicle is still rock hard and 3x it’s normal size.

Is it necessary to ejaculate before vasectomy?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
Is it necessary to ejaculate before vasectomy? The person I am asking for has been completely celibate for several months and has not ejaculated at all in that time. He is asking if it would be best to do before the vasectomy procedure or if it’s okay that he doesn’t. Please advise.

The clips used during my vasectomy came off. What are the chances my tubes rejoined? Is it possible to get someone pregnant?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a clip come off and exit my ejaculate a few years ago. Despite a negative sperm check, I worry that the ends have rejoined. What are the chances of getting someone pregnant? I should add that I had blood in my semen at one point.

My cremaster muscle has been overactive since having a vasectomy. How do I ease the pain?
I have always had a tight cremaster muscle. It's usually hard for doctors to properly examine me. Despite that, my urologist was able to perform a vasectomy under normal local anesthesia. I'm now 5 months post-recovery and have a swollen epididymis on both sides. The pulling up of the cremaster is causing a lot of pain because it squeezes everything into a space that it now doesn't really fit. I try to stay relaxed and do yoga to help. Anything else I can do?

The clamps placed during vasectomy came off and now the amount of cum is the same as before the surgery. Can I get my partner pregnant?
Vasectomy - 2 answers
My vasectomy was 5 years ago; the healing went fine. A couple of years ago, I kept swelling and my balls would turn blue. Went to ER and they did an ultrasound. They said my clamps had almost come completely off. After ejaculation, my balls would shrivel up and feel like I was kicked in the balls by a horse. I also could feel the clamps. Now, I can’t feel my clamps and no pain. I'm back to pre-surgery amount of cum. We want another baby. Could it happen or do I need a reversal?

Am I exhibiting the signs of post-vasectomy infection?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I'm 5 months post-no-scalpel vasectomy. In the last week, I’ve developed a testicle ache with occasional sharp, burning pain up the vas into the upper groin. It varies in intensity and responds well to heat or ibuprofen. I assumed congestion. The urologist I saw today never heard of that and suspects infection. He gave me Doxycycline even though the urine test was negative. I have no unusual swelling or redness or fever. Is this possible? Should I wait it out before taking antibiotics?

I still have pain and swelling about two months after vasectomy. Is this normal?
I had my vasectomy about two months ago. The first 3 weeks were painful but I was getting better in week 4. In week 5, I was almost normal and felt I could move furniture. Two days later, it was like week 1 all over again (a lot of pain and swelling). I went to the ER and the ultrasound showed everything was normal. My urologist said the same. My question is, is this normal? Right now I have issues sleeping because of the moderate swelling and pain.

It's been 6 days since my vasectomy and I am still in pain. It feels like I have a double hernia. Is that possible? Is this normal?
It's been 6 days since my vasectomy and I still have pain and swelling in my groin area. It feels like a double hernia. It hurts to go from sitting to standing and when standing for long periods. My testicles also hurt when I go from sitting to standing. Everyone is calling me a baby due to my symptoms, but this doesn't feel normal. What do you think?

On my scrotum I can see the puncture hole. There is no bleeding or discharge of any kind, but there is a visible hole. Will that go away after time?
Vasectomy - 2 answers
I can open the hole a bit and it's sealed within the hole. Just wondering if I'll always have a new hole there or if it will seal up over time. Thank you!

Should I be concerned with the bruise on my penis after vasectomy?
I had a no-scalpel vasectomy yesterday. The procedure was fine and my surgical site is closed. I’m mostly ok, except there’s a bruise (not painful to the touch) on the right side of my penis, far away from the surgical site. Everything I read and was advised by the doctor talks about bleeding or bruising around the site or in the testicles, so this one threw me off. It’s not painful, just wondering if it should be cause for a follow-up.
