Vasectomy is a very common procedure in today’s world. If you’re a man who has his hands full with a couple of kids or if you want to skip that chapter of your life completely, there may come a point in your life where you will think of forever ridding yourself of the possibility of having kids (and dealing with all the troubles that come with them). Not so surprisingly, the first question that arises in any man’s mind before he gets the procedure done is: how will the first ejaculation after vasectomy be like? And we are here to solve that mystery for you.
Getting a vasectomy: What happens after
Vasectomies are a quick and non-invasive procedure, which means that although you are going to experience some soreness post-surgery, it is not going to be catastrophic. The soreness will last for roughly a week, but it can take up to 6 weeks for the area to completely heal. You may also experience discomfort around your scrotal area during this period.
Fresh vasectomy patients are also advised to abstain from any strenuous activity, including ejaculation, for at least a week so that your wound can heal properly. Fortunately, after you make it through this week, there is nothing stopping you from enjoying sex (other than your own doubts and fears, of course).
The first ejaculation after vasectomy
Contrary to what most people think, a vasectomy makes no difference in your ability to ejaculate or the appearance of the fluid. The only consequence of this procedure is the absence of sperm in the semen. Neither you nor your partner will be able to feel this difference, meaning all will be well.
Now, coming back to our original question: the first few ejaculations might be somewhat uncomfortable, but under normal circumstances, the discomfort will not last for long. You may also notice some blood in your semen, and that is nothing to worry about.
However, if the problem persists for months, then it is best to pay your doctor a visit as this discomfort can be a sign of a post-surgery complication, such as post-vasectomy pain syndrome.
