What You Can Expect After a Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy reversals are longer and more complicated than the original vasectomy procedure. Because of that, recovery takes more time, although it is still fairly quick. In general, side effects after a reversal tend to be mild and disappear within a short period of time.

The First Few Days

During the first couple of days after surgery, you may experience slight swelling or bruising in the scrotum. In addition, the surgery and anesthesia could cause a headache, general pain, and nausea, among other short-lived side effects.

To soothe the scrotal area and help minimize swelling during the first few days, you’ll need to elevate your legs, stay off your feet, and use ice packs. You’ll need to avoid submerging the incision in water fort he first 48 hours after the procedure–showers after a day or so are just fine but…

Convincing Your Partner / Myths About Vasectomy

 

Convincing your partner that vasectomy is the right choice for birth control is a simple task. That is because vasectomy truly is the safest, cheapest, and most effective form of birth control. To convince your partner, just present the following facts:

  1. Vasectomy does not cause any hormonal changes, nor will it change his sexual function or desire.
  2. Vasectomy will not significantly change the character or quantity of his ejaculation. It simply blocks the sperm cells from being in the seminal fluid.
  3. The local anesthetic used is injected into the skin of the scrotum, not into the testicle.
  4. The no scalpel vasectomy is an innovative method of performing a vasectomy. It is done through a single small puncture through the scrotal skin, not an incision. It does not even require a stitch or a suture to close the skin.
  5. MAN UP! The burden of birth control and child bearing needs to be shared. Tell him that stepping up for a vasectomy is an important way for him to do his share.
  6. A Board Certified Urologist is a fully trained surgeon, and the no scalpel vasectomy is commonplace and easy for him. The procedure is safe and easy to perform.
  7. Show him the less than perfect options in our COMPARING OPTIONS section.
  8. Again: Vasectomy is the safest, cheapest, and most effective form of birth control.
