No: The recovery time is fairly short, especially if a no-scalpel vasectomy is performed. I recommend about 2 to 3 days of no strenuous activity and then slowly begin normal activities as tolerated. Usually, only tylenol (acetaminophen) is all that is needed during the recovery phase. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Here ...: Precaution against pregnancy after vasectomy should continue until pos-vas semen exam shows no sperm.

About 3 years ago I had a vasectomy. Not long after I began (and continue to) have discomfort around the sides of my hips. Can this be related?
Not likely: A vasectomy is a simple surgical procedure done through the skin of the scrotum. There should not be any new symptoms related to it several years later.

Can have longer segment of say 2 to 4 CM of vas removed during my future vasectomy? Want an open ended method , longer gap less chance to fail?
Possibly.: If an open-ended vasectomy is performed, it stands to reason that a longer gap between the cut ends of the vas deferens could possibly decrease the risk of failure by recanalization. However, this has not been systematically studied, so there is no data to support this practice. Current evidence suggests that superior results can be achieved by intraluminal cauterization. ...Read more
