After a total of 182,000 person-years of follow-up, only one condition, epididymitis/orchitis (defined as painful, swollen
, and tender epididymis or testis),
was found to be more common after vasectomy
. This local inflammation most often occurs during the first year after surgery. Treated with heat, the condition usually
clears within a week.
I would suggest that you visit your urologist for counseling on this issue.
