Is it normal to still feel a dull pain 15 years after vasectomy?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy 15 years ago. I was told titanium caps were used in that procedure back then. I feel a dull pain at times. Is that normal? I have diabetes 2, but otherwise fit. I also seem to have some minor erectile dysfunction at this age. I work too much, but love it. My main concern is the occasional dull pain. I do not live in the area anymore where I had the vasectomy, but want to know whether additional care is needed to resolve the pain.

Why would RMNS still be present a year and a half after my initial vasectomy procedure?
Vasectomy - 2 answers
I had a no scalpel vasectomy January 2017. I had PVSA in June 2017 and June 2018. My urologist had no concerns and I was given the all clear. However, why would RMNS still be present a year and a half after the initial vasectomy procedure? Is this a failure? Both ends on both sides were cut, a 1 cm section removed and both ends cauterized and tied. Complete luminal cross section was observed of the two vas after they were sent to pathology to confirm.

I had a succesful vasectomy in 2005. Now I will be turning 40 in August and I recently met a partner who would like to have children.
Vasectomy - 1 answer
My partner would like to have children in about 4-5 years from now and it has become an issue between us. I was wondering if there was a way to extract any sperm and give it to her and still get pregnant, and if so how do I go about it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Then I can hopefully save my relationship. Also some doctor recommendations would be great. I live in Phoenix, Arizona. Thank you for your time.

I masturbated partially but didn't ejaculate. Will this affect my vasectomy?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
It's 3 days after the procedure. The wound is fine. Should I be concerned this might have affected the outcome of the vasectomy? I will refrain from further masturbation until the week is up. Thanks for your help.

Is there such a procedure where a doctor will tie the vas deferens located in the higher end of the hip?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
My partner had a so-called vasectomy and his scar is located on the right side of his abdomen, almost as high as his hip. No procedures were conducted in his left side. I have not found such a procedure where a vasectomy is performed in the higher vas deferens area, and only on one side. Can you explain what has happened to my partner? Why did the doctor cut or tie his vas deferens so high up, and why only one side? Is he still ejaculating sperm or is he sterile? We don’t understand.

My vasectomy failed. My doctor recommended another procedure with a larger incision under general anesthesia. Should I be concerned?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy 6 months ago and have done 4 post sperm samples (following time lapse between samples and # of ejaculations). After the last, the doctor himself called to say there were still active sperm. He recommended another precedure with a larger incision, and this time under general anesthesia. It’s a well known hospital and experienced urologist. I already know this is fairly uncommon, but should I be concerned? If he didn’t cut the right thing, what did he cut?

Do I need to go back for a second PVSA?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
It's been 4 weeks & 23 ejaculations since my procedure. I tested today at my doctor and it came back negative for sperm. They said to come back in 2 weeks for the second test to confirm. But from a lot of reading I've done, a negative is a negative and we should be good to go for stopping contraception (or just straight abstinence in our case—not taking any chances).

I have chronic pain after my vasectomy. How long will this last?
I had a vasectomy 3 months ago. Had a huge hematoma, one operation, then another due to suspect infection.3 months on, my right side is still a lot bigge. The tubes to my testicle are very hard. I have chronic pain, of which my doctors just want me to live on pain killers for the rest of my life. How long would this be likely to go on for? I feel no change down there and the drugs just make life unbearable.
