Ejaculation After Vasectomy

Vasectomy RecoverySome men may experience pain during ejaculation that usually goes away about one week after vasectomy.

For this reason, we advise that men abstain from sexual intercourse during the 1st week of recovery.  After the 1st week, we advise patients to resume normal sexual activity as there is no risk of causing complications with sex or with ejaculation.

In fact, it is probably beneficial to “run” the system to flush it from residual sperm to maximize the chances that semen analysis at 2 months has no live sperm.  Of course, men should continue using contraception option of their choice until 2 semen analyses show no residual sperm in the ejaculate.

Will I see Blood in My Semen after Vasectomy?

Blood in semen is extremely rare after vasectomy.  Usually, blood in semen is caused by other causes and requires separate evaluation by your urologist.
