A 21-year-old male asked:
if bacteria from the urethra enter the vas deferens, will it infect it and cause scars and blockage to the vas deferens?

Repetative question: You have been asking questions about your vas deferens for several weeks. You're obviously obsessed with it. See one of my previous replies about epididymitis. Most likely nothing is wrong, but in any case you'll never get a conclusive answer on a forum like this. It's time to move on and stop asking; discuss with your own doctor.

A 24-year-old male asked:
Can bacteria from urethra spread to vas deferens and infect it, resulting in permanent scars and blockage in vas deferen?

Sort of: Chlamydia can travel from the urethra to the vas to the epididymis and cause infection there and cause infertility by damaging the epididymis which is where sperm is stored prior to ejaculation.
