How long does a no-scalpel vasectomy wound take to heal?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -2 answers
It's been roughly 3 weeks since my no-scalpel vasectomy. The wound is still wet and looks fresh. It's clean; I'm using non-woven swabs. There is no pain or infection. I'm just wondering how long the wound will take to heal?

I'm still mildly sore and achy roughly 4 weeks after my vasectomy. Is this normal?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
I had a no-scalpel vasectomy just under 4wks ago and still have a dull ache and some pangs of a “kick to the balls” feeling. Is this normal? Doesn’t appear to be any real huge swelling, just an ache feeling around the sides and back of my testicles. As well, the puncture site still has a stitch and is a bit sensitive to the touch. Does healing just take longer for some?

Is it normal to have a burning/tingling sensation during and after ejaculation?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
I had a vasectomy 2.5 weeks ago and was abstinent for the first 10 days. My testicles and general area are still tender but sexual activity is fine. At the end of an ejaculation there is a burning/tingling sensation at the end of my penis. Almost like a mild version of if you have gotten soap in the end of your penis. It lasts for 30 seconds to a minute after ejaculating. I've never had this issue before. Will this go away? Is it normal?

Can impacts to my groin after a vasectomy cause failure years later?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
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

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?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
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?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
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?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
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!

I have been on medicine for 2 days and my testicle is still rock hard and 3x its normal size. What should I do?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
I had a vasectomy 7 days ago. By the time I saw my urologist on post-op day 5, my left testicle was extremely swollen and bruised. He said I have higher than normal bruising/swelling and a varicocele but was not overly concerned. He prescribed Nabumetone 500 mg 2x a day. He did not feel I was infected. I have been on the medicine for 2 days and my testicle is still rock hard and 3x it’s normal size.

I still have pain and swelling about two months after vasectomy. Is this normal?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
I had my vasectomy about two months ago. The first 3 weeks were painful but I was getting better in week 4. In week 5, I was almost normal and felt I could move furniture. Two days later, it was like week 1 all over again (a lot of pain and swelling). I went to the ER and the ultrasound showed everything was normal. My urologist said the same. My question is, is this normal? Right now I have issues sleeping because of the moderate swelling and pain.

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?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -1 answer
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?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -2 answers
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.

Can I get pregnant within 2 months of my husband having a vasectomy?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy -2 answers
My husband had a vasectomy on August 17. He has ejaculated 5 times since the procedure. He is not planning on going for the sperm check. If we have unprotected sex over the next few months (September and October), what are the chances of pregnancy? Does the sperm count go by number of times ejaculated or weeks gone by? Thanks for answering my questions!!
