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?

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.

Should I still be having pain and swelling 7 days after my vasectomy?
Vasectomy - 1 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.

Vasectomy - 1 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 have severe pain in my left testicle one week after vasectomy. Is this an infection, hematoma or surgical complication?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
On day 6 after my procedure, I developed discomfort in my left testicle and groin area, which progressed to significant pain on days 7 and 8. On day 7, a call to my doctor resulted in a prescription of Cephalexin. I have no fever or other symptoms other than pain. My scrotum is bruised but it has improved. I’ve noticed no weeping out of the suture sites. After 36 hours of rest and 24 of antibiotics, pain hasn’t improved. Is this infection or hematoma, or surgical complication?

Should I get retested for a semen analysis? My semen was collected 32 hours after my last ejaculation.
Vasectomy - 4 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?
