Are there any studies done showing an increase in Prostate cancer years after a vasectomy has been performed?
After having lost my left testicle due to complications of a vasectomy and having had numerous infections of the urinary tract, kidneys and testicles I have had problems with low testosterone levels. I lost the testicle a year after the vasectomy due to a staph infection and nearly died. I have problems with vision as well and had to give up driving in 2003. I have Rod/Cone dystrophy and have only 15 degrees of central vision.
I had a vasectomy several years ago and now I feel that the amount of my ejecutlate is about half of what it was before. Any comments on the?
Vasectomy involves blocking the tubes through which sperm pass into the semen. Vasectomy has no effect on the production or release of testosterone, the male hormone responsible for a man’s sex drive, beard, deep voice, and other masculine traits. The operation also has no effect on sexuality. Erections, climaxes, and the amount of ejaculate remain the same.
I had a vasectomy at about 50. The (excellent) doc warned me that a vasectomy “might” reduce the ejaculate volume by up to 30%. This did happen & it’s now very low and is an issue. I’m on testosterone (different doc) and am extremely fit. Erections are easy, but orgasms are delayed and less enjoyable than pre-vasectomy. 1. The standard answer seems to be that vasectomies have no effect – your opinion? 2. What to do? Vasectomy reversal? Meds? Thanks for any ideas!
Because the testicles are left intact during vasectomy, the animalwill still have plenty of testosterone in its body. He will still be inclined towards showing unfavourable male-animal behaviours (roaming, aggression, dominance, territory marking, mounting and copulating with females etc.) and he will still be prone to developing a range of testosterone-mediated health problems. Author's note: vasectomy is not instantaneous.
I had a vasectomy about 7 days ago-and had swelling for a few days after. Other than that no real issues. BUT after the swelling subsided I now have old man looking loose skin on my scrotum. I'm only 35 and never had to much loose skin before. I'm a bit freaked out over this and want to know if it’s due to the fact that I had swelling that went down and now my skin has to get back to normal AND if that’s the case how long will I look like I'm 75 in the scrotum area.
Although possible, I am not aware of a vasectomy leading to the symptoms you describe. 2) Reversing the vasectomy would only make sense if it was the cause of the symptoms. I would first determine a blood count, ANA level, thyroid level, testosterone level, HIV test, metabolic panel, and liver panel as a start (if you haven't already).
This is the story you are meant to see. Little is said about the long-term effects of vasectomy. When a man has a vasectomy, his body continues to produce sperm. There is nowhere for this sperm to go and while some of it is reabsorbed, the amount produced can present some problems. In many men, this sperm builds up in the tail of the epididymus (a mushy sperm maturation organ connected to the testes). This leads to leaks in the epididymal lining.
What is considered a "normal" testosterone level for a healthy 45 year old man? I have been suffering from a variety of symptoms consistent with low testosterone: low sex drive, lack of morning erections, less intensity during ejaculation, less hard erections, irritability, etc.. I had my doctor run blood tests and everything came back normal. Testosterone was 257 on a scale of 241 - 800. Doctor says this is normal and will not consider hormone treatments.
” The AUA vasecomy information page goes on to say that ejaculation and orgasm are not affected by vasectomy with this caveat, “The only exception to this is the occasional patient who has developed post-vasectomy pain syndrome.” The incidence of post-vasectomy pain can be estimated, the symptoms are well described by affected patients and in the medical literature, and there are effective treatments.
Does anyone here know if there are any reasons a 60 year old man should NOT have a vasectomy? I am asking on behalf of my husband. I am 35, we just had our third child and while I am getting less fertile with age I am sure, I don't want to take the chance. He is concerned about pain, complications, etc. Vasectomy is the best option for us. Thank you for any insights.
Abstract: OBJECTIVE. To determine whether or not there is an association between testicular histologic changes and antisperm antibodies in vasectomized men. METHODS. Morphometry was performed on testicular biopsy specimens obtained from 19 vasectomized men and 21 fertile control subjects. Antisperm antibody status was determined on the serum of each patient and control subject using the indirect immunobead assay. RESULTS. Significant increases in seminiferous tubule wall thickness (p < 0.
As a result of loosing the testicle, I ended up needing monthly testosterone injections. A vasectomy is a joint decission and both partners share equal resonsibility. My wife suggested it since we had the number of children that we wanted. I wanted the vasectomy in the hope that it would put an end to the infections in the testicles. For me the sexual sensation had not changed. Since the last 3 years I have not been able to have intercourse or masterbation at all.
I do not have all of the blood test numbers at this time, only that the total testosterone level was 193 and the other testosterone number was 5. The internal medicine doctor has recommended that I start testosterone replacement therapy. My question is whether there is a way of treating low testosterone for someone my age that would stimulate natural production of testosterone, thus preventing testicular atropy.
Basically I am trying to find out if a cauterizing vasectomy can fix it, I believe (almost know) it can. But I don't know how much of the Vas Deferens has to be left connected to the testicle... ...if the Vas Deferens is needed to absorb the semen fluid plus testosterone... ...or if it doesn't matter and I can have it done. Because the rip is about half an inch from the testicle and I am eager to have it fixed.
I wonder if anyone on this forum can testify that they themselves, or there spouse had a vasectomy prior to needing the Testosterone. I feel that there is a correlation, but no physician would dare comment other than emphatically stating that there is none. Thank you all for sharing, as I have been able to breath a sigh of relief knowing that I am not alone.
He has a problem remembering to take his meds. So we actually went back to the dr that did his vasectomy for his testosterone problem. We brought up how I was a week late and the dr gave me a kind of foolish looking face, Like he doesnt believe me. Ive heard of stories of couples who have had a vasectomy done and turned out to be pregnant. It makes me mad that he thinks I couldnt be pregnant after he did the vasectomy four years ago.
I had a vasectomy 10 months ago (january 2014). Around august i noticed my erection strength started to become noticeably weaker, Ive been having issues for about 2 months now (from around August time), whereby my erections have become gradually weaker, . I was fine for the first 7-8 months leading up to august!. I have always been very sexually driven and never had any issues in this department at all! prior to August and the vasectomy.
So My urologist put me on a testosterone replacement therapy and I'm having my testosterone checked in January to see if the levels have come up at all. I'm just so confused as to why my testosterone would be so low if every test that they are running is coming back normal. I've been able to create three beautiful daughters in the last 9 years so I know i'm not impotent, but after my low t started I did have a vasectomy, but that should have nothing to do with my low t.
I am 47 years old. In 1990 I had a vasectomy. In 2003 I had the vasectomy reversed. Since the beginning of 2005, I am experiencing a substantial reduction in the size of my testicles (both). I dont think there was any complications with either surgery. The reversal seems to have been successful. I dont think there is a reduction in blood supply. I have done some studying on immune or hormone possibilities but I am uncertain as the cause of the reductions.
My husband is 38 years old and had a vasectomy four months ago. Since then he claims his orgasms are not pleasurable and he has problems staying erect. His urologist told him that it is all in his head, which has frustrated him even more. He takes a lot of medications for a heart condition, but the sexual problems did not occur prior to the vasectomy. This has become a big problem in our marriage, as he feels that he has been robbed of sexual pleasure.
I can ejaculate because the left one is fine, but I feel pain or/and have a cyst form in my testicle sack (flesh sack). Basically I am trying to find out if a cauterizing vasectomy can fix it, I believe (almost know) it can. But I don't know how much of the Vas Deferens has to be left connected to the testicle... ...if the Vas Deferens is needed to absorb the semen fluid plus testosterone... ...or if it doesn't matter and I can have it done.
I'm age 60 and, due to low testosterone level with no other abnormalities, my doctor recommended 5mg Testoderm patches. He cited increased risk of prostate cancer but could not quantify the increase. I had a vasectomy about 25 years ago. What does the literature suggest the incidence of prostatic cancer is for me a) with and b) without taking the Testoderm. (I'm familiar with the fact that low-testosterone levels may diminish the effectiveness of DRE and PSA tests.
I'm a 47 yr old happily married male with 2 children; had vasectomy about 2 1/2yr's and both of my vasdeferens (sorry about the spelling) are attached to my scrotum, at the same site where my dr had performed the vasectomy procedure; I had s/w of a tough time after my surgery; I had what I think is called a hemitoma (large clot of blood); it looked as if I had 3 testicles b/c the clot was the same size as them; I have always thought that my vasdeferens were suppost to be attached to my scrotum,

A few years ago I lost my left testicle after a vasectomy and having had several infections of the testicles. As a result the testosterone levels dropped far below the normal level. I now take monthly injections to suppliment the testosterone level. It is possible that your testicle could have suffered some damage due to having had the fluid around it. The testicles normally are supposed to be colder than the rest of the body, so this is a possibility.
Hi, After having had neumerous bouts of orchitis and epididymitis and my wife and I having had 3 children I had a vasectomy. There were some complications and I lost my left testicle. I now take monthly testosterone injections to maintain bone density and to avoid other side effects of low testosterone. I now have been free of orchitis or epididymitis eventhough I have had several kidney infections. For me it has been worth the risks, but it might not be the same for everyone.
A lot of women with pcos have an elevated testosterone level myself included - well I was reading an article the other day and it said that high testosterone levels have been linked to miscarriage. Well having had 7 (possibly 8 but it wasn't confirmed by blood) pregnancy losses myself I though mmm there might be some truth to that statement.
63 YO male. Began testosterone patches roughly five years ago. Results were only fair and cost was outrageous ( Patches were running $7 / day. ) and I eventually discontinued the patch. Several years ago I had a particularly strenuous year and was feeling low energy level + mild depression. Found a box of the patches & wondered if they would help so I tried using them for a couple weeks. I felt more energetic and generally better.
