Why don’t they just knock us out during vasectomies?
I have done tons of research and watched videos on vasectomies. Why doesn’t the AMA and AUA recommend laughing gas or general anasthesia? This looks extremely painful even when given something for anxiety! It turned me off to the whole procedure. Men feel pain too, especially in the most sensitive part of their body. In one video the doctor quipped “that’s my secret, the left side tells the right side what is about to happen.” He screamed out!

Can impacts to my groin after a vasectomy cause failure years later?
I had a vasectomy performed 3 years ago. My urologist cauterized the upper ends of my vas and utilized fascial interposition via titanium hemoclips to also clamp my bottom ends out of alignment. I have been struck and accidentally hit a few times in my balls because I practice martial arts. Could those impacts ruin or cause my vasectomy to fail in the future by possibly unattaching the clips? Thanks

Should I elect for surgery on my scrotal hematoma?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
The urologist that performed the vasectomy on me diagnosed me with a hematoma 7 days after. He initially said it didn't warrant an operation but then wavered on that. He is really pushing me to have surgery to drain the hematoma. I decided to wait at the time, and now I'm 13 days in and still very swollen and in pain. I am going to get a second opinion, but if the second doctor also recommends surgery, should I do it or try to wait it out? I don't want to be like this for months. I'm worried.

My doctor says when I drop off my sperm sample, transit doesn't matter after collection because they only look for dead sperm. Is that correct?
Almost all the websites I read say to get semen samples to the office/lab within 1 hour of collecting them. But my doctor said it doesn't matter how long it takes to get the sample to them because they only look for dead sperm, which would be present in the sample regardless of whether the sample is fresh or not. Is that true?

I want a no-scalpel vasectomy. Apparently, the metal wire retainer on my teeth may cause electrical shocks during the procedure. Advice?
I want a no-scalpel vasectomy. I had a consultation appointment over the phone and was told that the doctor may refuse to do the vasectomy based on the electrical shocks my retainer on the back of my teeth might conduct during the procedure. I really would like to have the treatment and don't want to be refused based on the issue, especially since the wire is incredibly thin and small. Any advice? Thank you.

Why are my testicles still incredibly sore 11 days after vasectomy?
I had a vasectomy on Feb. 21st. Why are my testicles still incredibly sore, especially on the bottoms? The slightest touch can make me feel nauseous. I followed all the doctor's orders—ice packs, rest, pills, no work for one week, jockstrap, etc. I don’t want to continue taking pills, and they’re not helping anyway. Is this normal? Why exactly do they hurt so bad? Why do I feel it aching all the way up to my stomach? Thank you for your time!

During post-vasectomy ejaculation, why does one testicle feel like it empties and the other doesn't?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I’m 48. I had a vasectomy 14 years ago. Ever since, when ejaculating, it seems only the right testicle empties and left remains full. I don’t experience any pain. This didn’t happen before the vasectomy. Can you tell me what is going on or what the possible reasons for this are?

Did my vasectomy fail? Is it possible for one sperm to slip through?
Vasectomy - 2 answers
I had a vasectomy in 2002. I was cleared by the doctor to have sex without risk of being fertile. I have since been divorced. I dated another woman, who is now claiming she is pregnant and cites I'm the only one she has been with. We are in 2019. I have had sex many times without issue. Is it possible that my vasectomy no longer works? Could one sperm have slipped through?
