Had vasectomy one testicle swelled larger than an avocado req hospital then the other did same months later pain still 13yrs on?

That's a tough one: Is there a tissue abnormality or diagnosis? I'm sure you've been tracking down a reason and haven't found one so it may be a matter of pain conduction. A drug that helps mood called duloxetine (cymbalta) may help the pain. If u don't sleep well make sure that gets covered. If no anatomic answer, then the right meds could change big problem into a small one. Gd luc, maybe better answer coming. ...Read more

How old must one be to get a vasectomy? And how expensive and risky is it?

How old must one be to get a vasectomy? And how expensive and risky is it?

No set age: Unusual question for a 16 year old. Asking for yourself or a friend or relative? This is not a light decision and would talk with your family, doctor, and partner. There are other forms of reliable birth control available that are cheap. Vasectomy is very safe and the most concerning complication is that it does not work and you are still have sperm released. Most insurance will pay for it. ...Read more

Call around: You may be able to find someone who will do the procedure.

Husband had a vasectomy now it's hard for him to have an orgasm. Does this happen? Should he go see a dr? He can get it up but not have one sometimes

Husband had a vasectomy now it's hard for him to have an orgasm. Does this happen? Should he go see a dr? He can get it up but not have one sometimes

Sexual dysfunction: Not rare after vasectomy, especially if subject wasn't too keen to have procedure. Prom is likely psychologic. Just try not to worry about it & fully normal function should return slowly. Consult urologist or Dr, specializing in sexual function problems if problem persists. Might benefit trial of Viagra (sildenafil) or Cialis if all else fails. Good luck. ...Read more

What is the best way to concieve after my husband had a vasectomy one and a half years ago?

Dose any one know that even after a vasectomy can sperm be retrieved if the man decides later on that he wants kids?

How reliable is a vasectomy? My husband had one 2yrs ago, followed all post op directions, but I still insist on addl contraception. Am I overreacting?

Yes: If his post-procedure semen analysis negative, then there is no need for additional contraception. While not 100% effective (the "act of god" pregnancy can still occur), if negative then there should be no worries. ...Read more

I recently had a vasectomy, the doc said that he could only do my left vas defrens due to my right one being to short. Is this possible and how?

Tight scrotum: If the scrotum is tight and the testis cannot be pulled downward, it is possible that the vas cannot be accessed under local anesthesia. When this occurs, doing the procedure under anesthesia will always allow access to the vas. ...Read more

I have severe endometriosis, one ovary removed, want to get pregnant. Is there a way to test my fertility before hubby reverses vasectomy? Chances low?

I have severe endometriosis, one ovary removed, want to get pregnant. Is there a way to test my fertility before hubby reverses vasectomy? Chances low?

Bad Odds: Oh wow! My first question is how long has your husband had a vasectomy? If longer than 5 years, significant antibodies are produced immobilizing the sperm and making him effectively infertile. Only might icsi/ivf help in which case he would not need a reversal, they would just insert a needle and extract a specimen. Also very expensive and low yield. Endometriosis prevents fertilization also. ...Read more

My friend slept with two people around the same time and is now pregnant. One had vasectomy w/ no sperm count. Any way he is the father?

My friend slept with two people around the same time and is now pregnant. One had vasectomy w/ no sperm count. Any way he is the father?

If he's the husband: For much of human history, the father of the woman's baby is the man she is married to. Modern testing can show whose DNA is from whom... if that's the way one wants to solve these situations that have been part of human life the past 100 generations. ...Read more

One of my partners had a vasectomy 5 yrs ago and got a sperm count and it came back zero. I'm pregnant. Any possible way he is the father?

One of my partners had a vasectomy 5 yrs ago and got a sperm count and it came back zero. I'm pregnant. Any possible way he is the father?

Not very likely: Since Vasectomy is a highly effective method at preventing pregnancies (more than 99%) particularly after a confirmatory sperm count of zero and because the incidence or "recanalization" and of post-vasectomy pregnancy is so low, it seems very unlikely that this "one of your partners" would be responsible for your pregnancy. ...Read more

If you got pregnant and one of your partners had a vasectomy and got checked by a doc with a zero sperm count any possible way he could be the father?

If you got pregnant and one of your partners had a vasectomy and got checked by a doc with a zero sperm count any possible way he could be the father?

Wishful thinking: If the vasectomy partner has a documented lab report showing zero sperm, it is unlikely but not completely impossible. There are rare known instances of the vas deferens (sperm pathway that was cut or clipped) blockage to put itself together again. However, if you have had multiple partners, and did not use contraception, you are more likely pregnant by a "connected pathway guy." ...Read more

I: I can understand your concern as that is a very unusual menstrual cycle. Please take a pregnancy test to be sure that isn't the cause, but it sounds unlikely. Please have your thyroid hormones checked to be sure you are not hypothyroid. It is also important to be sure you are receiving adequate nutrition, as patient's with malnutrition can have irregular cycles. That is a very long time to go without a period so I advise that you do see a gynecologist and have this completely evaluated. ...Read more

A month after a vasectomy, I still have a wound. Is this normal?

Several reasons: The male genitalia as an excellent blood supply and so almost all injuries heal fairly quickly. Things that prevent healing are persistent foreign bodies such as a vasectomy clip too close to the surface and is being pushed out through natural healing, or a suture that is not absorbing as fast as expected. If this persist, the area may need to be re-excised and closed again. ...Read more

My husband had a vasectomy 8 months ago what are the chances it didn't work?

It's been 5 months ever since I underwent vasectomy and my wife has been taking the pill up to date. Can she stop taking the pill?

It's been 5 months ever since I underwent vasectomy and my wife has been taking the pill up to date. Can she stop taking the pill?

Yes, if no sperm: In your semen. Should have or have had semen analysis 3 months & 20 ejaculations after vasectomy. You are free & clear in absence of sperm & your wife can stop taking the pill. Check with your urologist. There is about 1:1000 chance of recanalization in rare instance post vasectomy healing resulting in reconnection of the vas. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant 2 months after vasectomy?

Possible...: The safety & effectiveness after vasectomy can be claimed only after post-vas semen exam shows no sperm. Largely, some 85% of post-vas men will be sperm-free after 15 ejaculations or in months; despite claimed sperm-free, post-vas recanalization does still occur. Despite stressing these important post-vas F/U, still less than 45% of patients would follow post-vas instruction to get post-vas semen. ...Read more

If my sperm count 3 months after my vasectomy is 110 million, what could have happened?

If my sperm count 3 months after my vasectomy is 110 million, what could have happened?

Failed procedure: Three months after vasectomy, there should be zero sperm in your ejaculate. If there were 1-2 sperm per high-powered field, it would be reasonable to sit tight and recheck in a month, but you have a normal fertile sperm count. See a doc that does a lot of vasectomies. You can have the procedure repeated. ...Read more

I had a all brown short period last month and no signs of my next 1, partner had vasectomy, should I be worried?

Here are some. ..: Period regularity may change from time to time due to a variety of reasons. To eliminate the worry of second guess for pregnancy, nowadays, the high reliability of and easy access to HPT have taken much pressure off the shoulders of many sexually active patients. So, do HPT in a wk after missing expected period & repeat it in a wk if the 1st test is (-) & still in doubt. More? Ask Doc timely. ...Read more
