Considering Your Vasectomy

Considering your vasectomy…?

If you’re considering a vasectomy, you’re probably wondering, will my sex life take a hit? Well, I’m here to tell you that it won’t. In fact, most men say their sex lives get better after a vasectomy. Here’s what we mean by that and more! Please watch the video after reading this article for more information.

Libido, erection, endurance, and testosterone levels

As with all surgical procedures, there are risks associated with a vasectomy. Serious complications following the procedure include infection and bleeding due to tears (rare), failure of the testes to stop producing sperm (very rare), and chronic pain in the scrotum (very rare).

  • There is no loss of libido after a vasectomy.
  • You should be aware that some men experience a decrease in their sex drive after having a vasectomy; however, this is uncommon and usually temporary. There is no evidence that sexual function or pleasure is affected by having this surgery done on either partner.
  • If you’re worried about erectile dysfunction after your procedure, keep in mind that it’s still possible for your partner to become pregnant—though statistically unlikely—even without an active sperm count. If you want to keep options open for future children (or if she isn’t ready for sterilisation herself), consider getting an IUD instead of tubal ligation: It prevents pregnancy just like birth control pills do while keeping both partners’ options open down the road.
  • Condoms aren’t nearly as effective at preventing unwanted pregnancies as they once were, thanks largely to new strains of bacteria that can live inside them; even fewer people use them correctly nowadays! “Vasectomies may provide added protection against STDs too.”

Reassuringly, however, complications are rarely reported. Most men don’t notice any physical difference at all after a vasectomy. Some men may experience some pain and swelling, but this is very rare. Some men may experience some bruising, but this is also very rare.
