Why is there a wide difference in the recommended time frame for post vasectomy semen analysis?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy - 4 days ago2 answers
My paperwork said about eight weeks. At my one week check up I was healing great and my Urologist said I could take my test at 5 weeks. Also I am only taking 1 test as required in my case. I'm seeing that two tests are the normal recommendation.

The urology clinic where my husband had his vasectomy only depends on Spermcheck at home to test his semen.
Vasectomy - 1 week ago3 answers
Though his test came back negative and he has had well over 30 ejaculations since the procedure, I am still so worried about unprotected sex. I am very concerned about simply depending on the at home test. Should I trust his negative test and rest easy on this? I’m driving my husband crazy reading too many horror stories. Is it normal to still feel the need for some kind of contraception, like a spermicide after vasectomy?

Hi, following my vasectomy a few months ago, I had a letter recently stating that I had 363 non-motile sperm present. What does this mean?
Vasectomy - 1 week ago1 answer
The letter didn't say if this was good or bad and I don't know if it's safe to now have unprotected sex. I'm still waiting to hear back from my doctor but it's been a while without reply.

Is my pain at two+ weeks normal?
Vasectomy - 2 weeks ago1 answer
I had a vasectomy 17 days ago. At about day 9 I started getting significant pain in the left testicle. It still hurts if I walk without tight underwear on or if it is touched... specifically if it is pulled downward. I can feel the pain in the testicle and up a straight line into my lower abdomen area. It almost feels like a hernia sometimes (though I know it's not a hernia). Is this normal?

I had a vasectomy 7 years ago. Right after, I noticed that my ejaculate is much less than before. Could this be another issue?
Vasectomy - 2 weeks ago2 answers
I've read in many places that the amount of ejaculate should not decline after a vasectomy, but mine substantially changed after the procedure. Sometimes, if there is more than one ejaculation during the day, almost nothing comes out. Should I be concerned there is another issue? Again, it happened right after the procedure and I assumed that was normal for a vasectomy. I'm concerned there is some after-affect. I also had blood in my ejaculate a few times in the initial 3 years after.

My husband got a vasectomy on the 22nd and he thinks he can feel the clips. Do the clips dissolve? Will it always hurt when we have sex?
Vasectomy - 2 weeks ago1 answer
The doctor never gave us a full consultation. My husband says it hurts if he moves the wrong way and it pinches it. We kind of regret getting it done now because we don't want him to be in pain every time we have sex or are intimate.

I had a vasectomy 20 years ago. Can I impregnate any one?
Vasectomy - 1 month ago3 answers
I have slept with women but none got pregnant. I slept with a woman and now she's 7 weeks pregnant. I don't know if it's mine or her boyfriend's. I told her it can't be mine, but she's adamant. Is it possible that I am fertile?

Is there a treatment to remove small bumps (cysts) on the scrotum 10 years after vasectomy reversal?
Vasectomy Reversal - 1 month ago2 answers
I had a vasectomy reversal about 10 years ago. Shortly after the operation I started developing small bumps (smaller than a pencil eraser). I believe they are cysts. They are mostly on the left side of my scrotum. Over the years they have continued to develop. I saw my urologist about it and he said they are nothing to worry about. Is there a way to get rid of them?

It's been 6 years after my vasectomy and I still feel like there is a stich remaining in my testicle.
Vasectomy - 1 month ago2 answers
A couple years ago the doctor said if it doesnt bother me I should leave it. It does become painful from time to time and also super sensitive. Could it be a stitch? What do you recommend?

Are sperm most likely non motile at 8 weeks post vasectomy regardless of number of ejaculations?
Vasectomy - 1 month ago2 answers
Would I really be fertile enough to cause a pregnancy at 8 weeks post? I've heard the sperm would degrade by this amount of time no matter how many ejaculations.

Can the clips migrate if they some how come off?
Vasectomy - 1 month ago1 answer
I had a vasectomy in 1989, the clips are no longer there! I have a couple of knots at the base of my penis, center mass, that cause slight pail when erect.

I've read that infertility after a vasectomy is directly related to the frequency of ejaculations and not time. Is this true?
Vasectomy - 1 month ago1 answer
I had a vasectomy 7 days ago. Assuming I ejaculate 20 times in a 4 week period after the procedure, should I be concerned with sperm in my semen? Thanks!
