I got tired of all the articles that said how risk free vasectomies were. So I looked up botched vasectomies just to see what was there. There are some real gems.

This one was a link in the above article. It's here to remind you that things could always be much, much worse.

So you're 47 now and the surgery was when you were 32? If that's correct all your issues could be due to aging. As other people have suggested, get your testosterone checked.

2) And, why years later????????????????????????
Just in case someone or others might know what cut around that area that would cause such bleeding and reduction of sexual functioning if in fact it was not the cutting of the vas that caused this? Its the most important thing to me 15 years ago (becauise its of the greatest loss one can endure when the doctors didnt do much at all to find out what happened)) and still is important today and still will be another 15 yrs from now, and 15 yrs from then, and so on. I got a reversal at 36 hoping it might improve the problem but it never did.

Not nearly as much as it would be ruined because of an unwanted kid and financial support for the next 18 years.

Nah, you can't put a price on it. Had I known what was going to happen after my vasectomy, you couldn't pay me all the money in the world to get that done. and I would simply do all the fun things with a woman with no condom (and dvds) that wouldn't cause unwanted pregnancy anyways. But can't go back in time now.

As an RN I always considered them to be safe....& I know how common they are. BUT....it's kinda scary for me to think about this with my Bf....I'm gonna pass this on to him. We might have to think about another way....Essure makes it just as easy for us with no incision & it can be done just like with the men, in the office.....

Sry this happened to you......I should ty for spreading it on health & wellness after all.....but you should still see a doctor to see if there is anything you can do to improve or know for *sure*.....good luck!

Absolutely. Stress and anxiety can reduce testosterone levels. By refusing to address the underlying issue (stress and anxiety) and not getting the testosterone levels checked, the OP is doing himself no favors.

The answer to one of your questions is - there was nothing else in there that was cut that could have affected your performance. You stated that the first side done was higher than the second, and wondered why all the bleeding occurred. Unexpected bleeding can occur in any incision. This is usually not serious. Blood vessel placement and cutting more deeply into tissue up closer to the body are both factors.

If this procedure was done in your early 30s, that is about the age that most guys begin to notice some changes in performance. Some of it is physical, and some of it is psychological, like job pressures, expenses, the kids, or marital issues. It is not normal to go through life with zero stress, or to expect that your performance in your 20s will last forever.

IMO, you just happened to have the procedure done at a time when you would have experienced a reduction anyway. One thing is for sure - If you had not had this done, you still would have noticed a decline, and your performance today would not be what it was in your 20s.

Anyone have an idea or may know what he could of cut to cause it to bleed for 25 minutes? If it wasn't a vas deferens that he cut to cause that bleeding, what could of he have cut to cause it? The reason why I ask all of this is because to my horror, my sexual functioning or capability permanently decreased after vasectomy over 60% less ever since then.
Post vasectomy pain syndrome. I see you found the link. Small comfort but at least doctors listen to men more than women. Try having Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome; I did for 10 years & finally had to have the tubal reversed. Thank God.

I could have had 10 more kids & not been as sick as I was for those 10 years. Seriously. I already had 11. I know exactly what that means. Ironically, the 11th was a post-vasectomy baby.

They are on FB check them out before they get minimized.

Unfortunately, this was heavily politicized as population control during the Kissinger era & you will not ever be validated by the medical community.

Women have dealt with the side effects from hysterectomies for years not to mention what child birth does to our bodies so welcome to reality. I've heard horrible stories about bladder problems, accidentally cutting off blood supply to the ovaries, scar tissue etc.
