Hello- as a person ages, the scrotum loses elasticity, and the skin starts to sag. Certain medical conditions can also cause the skin to appear saggy/loose. Other times, sagging testicles may be the result of an underlying issue, such as a varicocele. A varicocele occurs when a vein near the testicles swells up. This swelling can cause an increased blood flow to the testicles, which heats them. The body then responds by dropping the testicles lower to prevent them from getting too hot.

Hello- you'll be able to have protected sex after the surgical site heals. This typically takes one or two weeks after the procedure. You'll be able to have unprotected sex after a semen analysis shows that there isn't any sperm left in your semen. This is usually around 3 months after the procedure.

Vasectomy - Know Misconceptions About It!

Vasectomy is synonymous with sterilizations and is one of the most stress-free procedures for couples who want to limit their chances of pregnancy and childbirth. It is a process that has been perfected over the years and is still the most reliable method to avoid impregnation. However, there are still some myths and allegories associated with it. Though these have considerably reduced in the modern age, there are still some pockets of the world where this is prevalent. Come, let us take a look at some misconceptions and myths regarding vasectomy and the actual truth behind them.

Myth 1: Your sexual performance gets affected.
This is one of the most common misconceptions that are associated with a vasectomy. This is the number one reason why many men are hesitant to go for it fearing that their sex life could get hindered leading to nonperformance.

Truth: This is incorrect. The idea behind a vasectomy is to avoid pregnancy, and there is no reason as to why it would hamper your sex life. You will be able to lead an active sex life, and semen production will also be normal.

Myth 2: Testosterone production will be nil after vasectomy
Sperms are made in the testicles, and hence this myth came into existence that once a vasectomy is performed, you would be unable to produce any sperms and testosterone.

Truth: The simple truth is the myth is entirely baseless. Your sperm production is never eliminated and only your tube for the distribution of sperms is closed by a vasectomy. Hence it in no way affects your sperm production. A vasectomy does not have any effect on the production of testosterone.

Myth 3: Vasectomies stops sperm production
Many people assume fertility with sperm production. Hence once a vasectomy procedure eliminates the fertility aspect your sperm production automatically stops.

Truth: No. This is incorrect. Vasectomies never stop sperm production. They only restrict the sperms from entering into the semen. Sperms have a lifespan of about four days. Hence it is only natural that they are removed and replaced.

Myth 4: You are completely sterile post the surgery
It is easy to assume that you are sterile after you have the surgery. There is no way that having sex can lead to pregnancy.

Truth: While there is a lot of truth in the above, there can be some instances of live sperms below the procedure point. The complete process of sterility can take about 4 to 5 weeks to occur and for all the sperms to get relinquished. Hence it is safe to not have sex for these weeks. It is also safe to get a semen analysis post the surgery.

Myth 5: Vasectomies are foolproof sterility methods
The high success rates in the procedure have made everyone believe that vasectomy is the sure shot to infertility. It is also 100% efficient.

Truth: While it is true that a vasectomy has a high success rate it is certainly not 100%. There can be instances where there are failures in a vasectomy, and this will not curtail your sterility. There are even known cases when couples have been able to conceive even after a vasectomy. Though the chances are extremely high of becoming sterile, the procedure is not foolproof.

Please reply.
Vasectomy is done in govt hospital camps for free. In private most surgeons don't do it. If at all a general surgeon agrees to do it charges will be around 20-25k.

Hello Mr Shekhar, it is unlikely that any medication would help you, as there are good chances of the reversal failure, so even if your testicles ARE producing sperms, they wont be able to pass into your semen, I suggest assisted reproductive techniques, if you are planning for a baby.

The Pros And Cons Of Having A Vasectomy

The Pros and Cons of Having a Vasectomy

When guys reach that point in their lives when they know they don't want children (or they have plenty of them and don't want more!), they often choose to undergo a vasectomy. Most men who undergo the procedure have no lingering effects and often are happy with the results. But there are some terrified of undergoing any sort of procedure, worried about a penis injury happening when they get a vasectomy. The truth is that there are pros and cons to the procedure, and every man needs to know what those are in order to make an informed decision.

The pros of vasectomy:

Any man who wants to have a vasectomy must understand what he will benefit from the procedure. Here are some of the reasons many men choose to do it:

1) No more kids. The most obvious "pro" of vasectomy is that it prevents a man from fathering children. In the world of birth control, this is almost as close as a guy can get to not having that particular responsibility.

2) The procedure is quick. The procedure is a "one and done" situation - a guy goes in, gets a snip, and is out of the doctor's office within an hour or so. This one simple procedure is all he needs.

3) Recovery is quick, too. Most men are told to take it easy on the couch for a few days. He might have some soreness for a few weeks, as well as bruising, but within a month or so he's right as rain.

4) No more condoms. It usually takes about 20 ejaculations for a guy to rid his body of all semen and thus be fine with not using a condom while having sex. As long as he's in a monogamous relationship, he can enjoy the freedom of unprotected sex without worry.

5) No pressure on a partner. Some men find themselves with a partner who can't use certain birth control methods. By getting a vasectomy, he relieves his partner of the responsibility of figuring out birth control.

The cons of vasectomy:

Though there are many pros to the procedure, there are some risks that men need to carefully consider.

1) It's a surgical procedure. Even though the procedure has been used for a long time and has been perfected by numerous doctors, there is still a risk anytime someone uses a scalpel on a delicate area. Though rare, some men have reported problems that lingered after the surgery.

2) No protection from sexually transmitted infections. Many men had the best of both worlds when they used condoms: The protection from pregnancy and from infections. However, a man who has a vasectomy still has to use a condom if he doesn't have a steady, monogamous partner.

3) Reversal can be tough. Though the procedure for vasectomy is quick and easy, reversing it is much more involved. If a man changes his mind and decides he really does want to have more children, it will be an uphill battle to make it happen.

4) Sometimes it doesn't work. In a small percentage of men, the vasectomy doesn't "take." This means that a guy who had a vasectomy could wind up with a surprise baby a few years down the road.

5) Some men feel regret. Though most men who undergo the procedure are happy with the outcome, some men are deeply affected by the fact that they are no longer fertile. This can lead to depression and related problems, which can affect every part of a man's life.

The decision to have a vasectomy is a very important one that a man should never take lightly. Before the procedure and after, he should pay close attention to his penis health, including the use of a good penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). A crème that contains L-carnitnine can help protect the nerves of the penis; L-arginine can help ensure blood flow stays ample. Shea butter and vitamin E, both known for their healing properties, are also great for a man recovering from a vasectomy.
