I ejaculated 11 days after a vasectomy reversal. Recovery has been routine w/ what doctor suggested. No increased pain or swelling since. Am I OK? Before you tell me that it isn't recommended, I know. I will continue to follow my doctor's orders for the next 2-3 weeks. I'm just curious if there are any signs I should look for that would indicate anything is wrong. To be honest, I feel quite a bit better today than I did beforehand.

Most likely no harm has been done. Continuing with your plan is the thing to do. Anecdotally, I had a patient who had sex the night of the reversal (don't try this at home!) and all went well; it achieved pregnancy.

You sound perfectly alright and I do not think you need to worry about anything at this stage. Just follow your doctors advice. You are fine.

I had a vasectomy before meeting my partner and now that we will be marrying soon, we'd like to start a family. So I had a vasectomy reversal three months ago. I have not ejaculated more than 10 times for purity purposes before marriage. I had my sperm tested after the reversal procedure and it shows that the sperm has not returned. Can we hold out hope? Is there a chance the sperm will return?

I had a robot-assisted vasectomy reversal and my doctor told me not to ejaculate or have sex for FOUR WEEKS. I'm having a difficult time. I'm at two weeks post-procedure and waiting another two weeks seems excessive. Do I REALLY need to wait an entire four weeks?

I'm 35 and I don't think I want to have children. If for some reason I do find someone later on in life, and I want to have kids does it matter how old I am? Could I be 45 and get a reversal? Should I not get a vasectomy if I think I'll want kids?
