Sex after Vasectomy

Sex and VasectomyIn general, men after vasectomy are advised to abstain from sex for 1 week.  While usually there are no complications after having sex in the first 1 week after vasectomy, many men experience pain after ejaculation during the first week after vasectomy.  For this reason, to avoid ejaculatory pain, we advise that men abstain from sexual intercourse and ejaculation for the 1st week.

There is a small risk that the blood vessels surrounding the area where the vas was ligated may open up and lead to usually minor bleeding and scrotal hematoma in the first few days after the vasectomy. 

This is an additional reason why we advise patients at New York Urology Specialists to abstain from sexual intercourse and ejaculation for the first week after either no-scalpel, no-needle vasectomy or traditional vasectomy.

Erections after Vasectomy

Men do not experience any change in erections after vasectomy.  Vasectomy does not affect erectile function.  Some men feel that they have more sensitivity and become more aroused because they did not need to use condoms after no-scalpel vasectomy.

In general, men experience improved sexual satisfaction after a vasectomy.  It is important to remember that vasectomy does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases.  In addition, one must rely on other contraceptive methods until 2 semen analyses show no residual sperm.  Semen analyses are typically performed about 2 months after the vasectomy.
