Vasectomy issues

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had a vasectomy done 2 weeks ago now was alot of brusing and pain witch still have some but isnt an issue..the issue is now im not as sensitive during sex and i no longer feel most of my orgasm, i was told that everything will be just the same no different but when it comes to sex i no longer feel my testis at all with my orgasm ( witch in itself has taken away half the orgasm) and my penis side of things just is no where near as sensitive and i find afterwards that its not disappointing and unforfilling to the point im not overly interested in sex now..before the surgery me and my partner where every night. Im starting to feel like ive been robed of this trying to do the right thing if i was told there was even the smallest possibility of this i wouldnt of gone ahead with the surgery its making me depressed greatly as im Starting to feel that i will never have an orgasm again...and i have no idea what to do

    You are very soon after your surgery and are still healing. Scar tissue can take a year to set and mature.

    I would visit your GP and be open about where you are at following surgery, then keep going for repeat appointments and referrals until you get your situation resolved.

    You pay for the NHS, so if you need to access it due to problems following an NHS provided surgery, you should do so.

      Try : http://www.postvasectomypain.org

      It's full of men with issues following vasectomy, primarily pain, but also others similar to your own.

      I hope you get some resolution, I had a vas, then severe pain, then paid for a reversal a year later as it was badly messing my life up.

      Still have mild pain probs 5 years on, and sex def now not as good as before the hell year of severe pain.

      I just live with it myself, as at one point I thought the pain issue would cost me EVERYTHING. Sex is not everything, but it's not a well discussed outcome.

    How is this for you now?

    I’m booked in, 29th September. I would like the non-scalpel procedure - but it would appear that it isn’t because the info sheet sent from the hospital says I will have dissolvable stitches. Which did you have - as research implies the side effect are different.
