Brief Answer:
It is normal for volume of ejaculate to be less and thick after Vasectomy.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query .

You have noticed your semen to be thick and less in volume after Vasectomy being done 2 weeks ago.

It is mostly due to inflammation f Vas and seminal vesicles in addition to loss of sperms volume which constitute 10 % volume of the semen .

Ideally one is supposed to practice safe sex for 4-6 weeks after vasectomy by using condom as there is a risk of residual sperms being present in Ampula of water and adhered to wall of Vas Difference which may result in to conception .

Practice safe and protected sex .

There is nothing to be worried about volume and thickness of semen .It will resume to normal within six weeks .
