Yes vasectomy makes us not to be able to produce kids, but not lose sex drive. I had vasectomy two years back.  we already have two children. Now, I and my wife, both are so happy as the tension of her getting pregnant and one more arrival in the family in this expensive costly world is not there. She is also not taking any pills and copper-t and such so she is very happy and satisfied with her health and with me too.

General & Family Physician Dr. JItendra Sharma's  Response
Vasectomy is a sterilization procedure. if a person suffers from impotence following sterilization, kindly note that it is just psychological. Just bit of motivation and counselling and believing in urself will solve the problem.

Hi it is a wrong information about this. Vasectomy will not cause any harm in having erections and sex. You can have your sex life like before after the vasectomy. You can undergo vasectomy with out any hesitance. It will not make you impotent. Inturn it will make you more potent because you can enjoy teh act more having no worry of making your wife and girlfriends pregnant

vasectomy is nothing to do with erection and sex. it will make you infertile not impotent

Hello! My boyfriend had a vasectomy over 20 years ago. He is 52 years old and I am 43 years old. I have read some research that the deferens can grow back and I can become pregnant. I am hoping that you can answer my question and make me feel a bit better. Thank you! Mary

I had a vasectomy when I was 24 years old. I am now 50. I am married to another woman now and we would like to have a child together. The Doctor that did my vasectomy told me it was the non reversable kind meaning he tied a knot and used stiches not a clamp. Can this vasectomy be reversed? Do I still make sperm? Can this sperm be extracted and artifically implanted in my wife?

I'm 30 years old, I am in good health, I had a vasectomy a week ago. Since then my scrotum has been extremely relaxed, or in other words "saggy balls". They have yet to constrict, which has made recovery even more uncomfortable. Is this something to be cocerned about, is this normal?
