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 - 1 week ago2 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?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy - 2 weeks ago2 answers
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.

Should I still be having pain and swelling 7 days after my vasectomy?
Vasectomy - 3 weeks ago1 answer
I had my vasectomy about 7 days ago. Since day 1, I have big swelling (the left testicle is 2x bigger than the right). I applied ice for 3 days but the testicles remain at the same size and my scrotum is a bit red. Additionally, I have moderate pain in the upper part of both testicles if I touch them (more pain in the left one). I asked my doctor at day 4 and he says that everything is as expected. But I'm concerned because I'm at the same stage since the surgery.

Is it normal to have slight swelling and minor testicular pain 1 month after vasectomy?
Vasectomy - 3 weeks ago1 answer
I still have slight swelling and pain that goes from under the testicle and feels like it extends to my bladder. It's been 1 month. Is this normal? I started my life as normal the next day after vasectomy, carrying one of my kids. And 7 days later I had to travel, taking four flights for three days. The pain comes slightly when I walk or my testicles are hanging.

Should I get retested for a semen analysis? My semen was collected 32 hours after my last ejaculation.
Vasectomy - 1 month ago3 answers
I had my vasectomy 3.5 months ago now and took my semen analysis. It was negative, no sperm seen. My question is that I was never given any instructions on this procedure and I've recently read online that you should wait at least 2 to 7 days after your last ejaculation to collect a sample. I wasn't aware of this. Does it matter? I collected my sample about 32 hours after my last ejaculation, so less than 2 days. Should I get retested?

Vasectomy - 1 month ago1 answer
I had my vasectomy 10 days ago. For the first 6 days, everything seemed to be going really well. On day 7, there was great discomfort and pain coming from the right testicle. Today is day 10 and my right testicle is about 5x larger than the one on the left. Is this typical swelling and bruising or does it sound more like infection/internal bleeding?
