I have lived with pain in my testicles ever since I made the biggest mistake of my life by having a vasectomy. This operation just has to be the most stupid thing I`ve ever done.
It was told it was ¬nothing much` but have been in pain for over sixteen years and it only gets worse. The long term risks have not been well enough explained and is much more common than was told to me.
The best advise I could give anyone thinking about the snip is DON`T
I did not find it good. It is not an easy option. I was done over 4 years ago
I still have mild pain and that feeling of sore and swollen testicles all the time. Prior to the Vas I was never aware of my testicles. After the op. they felt very painful for much of the first year. It is difficult to describe how foul it was but I found I could not sleep on my side and the pain would often wake me up. I think emotionally it was a trauma and I was off sex altogether for about a year. I have found since resuming sex for me does not have quite the same kick and I am not so interested(yes I know I am older but I think the link is to direct and immediate). I also think the operation damaged my self confidence.
I had it on the NHS. My wife had a problem with a UTI at 45 and Dr suggested I speak to them on the phone. Dr consultation involved a phone call only. They recommended a fellow GP to do it and when I asked about different methods insisted the method was a good as any. No other forms of Birth Control suggested apart female sterilization in spite of asking.
One nasty surprise was that the Anaesthetic failed- extreme pain for a brief moment - operation took nearly an hour.
I'm not sure if I can post pictures here to show what I mean. I had my vasectomy 3 days ago. It seems like my left testicle it attached to the incision site. My right one is fine, and hangs where it should, but the left is up high at the base of my penis, eand the incision site is pulled in like a deep dimple. Will this go away on it's own or will I need another surgery?View 1 Replies
I am sorry to say that my experience has been fowl, the operation took 50 mins on the NHS and I think the whole experience was a shock. Before the operation I had a virtually perfect sick record. However, I was too uncomfortable to get back to work for the best part of two weeks. Not the 2 weeks web sites suggest. It's now more than 14 months since I had the surgery and I always feel full and tight in the tesicles. I have libido but too much lingering aching pain after sex puts me off . It is a dreadful hot cold pain aching pain that carries on for a day or two after orgasm and difficult to describe. My sex life down from twice a week to less than once a month. For me it took away the joy of sex. and life
That warm feeling spreading from the groin on coming has gone. I find it very depressing because there seems to be no going back as more intervention appears not to cure these painful problems once started
Maybe I have just been very unlucky but I suspect that I am one a substantial minority
The trouble with medicine and outcomes is that vasectomy looks good on paper. I suspect there are a lot of men privately suffering varying degrees of pain.
I had a vasectomy a week ago and I'm experiencing a decent amount of pain in my left testicle.
I noticed while urinating that when I pulled forward on my penis as I finished that my left testicle hurts and is being pulled forward with the skin.
While on the pain meds I tested a bit more, as I continue to pull forward the left testicle comes forward more and if I tilt upwards it is also pulled outward so that it is standing out at a good angle.
When I do this there is a pocket of loose skin behind the testicle where it would normally be sitting.
(Trying to be as descriptive as possible here, if I were to lay on my back with an erection my testicles would be standing up as the highest point.)
I can feel under the incision that there is extra mass on the left side that seems to be connected to the testicle which is not present on the right side.
Basically any movement of my left testicle is painful, holding it closer to the incision site seems to help.
I'm worried that something coming off of the testicle got stitched in on accident or that it is just healing that way. This CANNOT be a permanent thing.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so did your testicle movement go back to normal on its own and if so how quickly?
My balls are red and the skin is peeling off and idk what to do and I'm scared it going up my pens and I just need help and advice I'm still very young and it just happen to me like 5-6 months ago I told my parents but they don't know what to do and I put some anti fungal and it's not working.View 1 Replies
I'm 16 (almost 17) and have been able to masturbate for the past 3-4 months now, yes I'm a late bloomer. My penis hasn't changed significantly in size or shape however I am worried because over the past couple of weeks (2-3, maybe even longer) I have noticed a patch which is grey/purple in colour on the glans (?) and it has actually been getting larger. There are also a couple of bumps on it. (Note: needless to say, I haven't yet had sex.)
Is this normal and just a part of the penis growing, or is it something I should be worried about as much as I am at the moment? I would really appreciate reassurance because I'm worried about what this could be as I don't know what may have caused it. The only thing I can think of is that as I have masturbated and used a tissue, the tissue has removed moisture and caused this.
Should I not masturbate to see if it goes away? Is it something serious or should I just leave it?

I am 30 years old.
Well as the topic mentions i have really small testicles, so small that when my penis is erect they most likely go in me.
My penis is extremely small when flaccid , prob 2-3 inches top if its a good day, but when erect it is about 6 or so ( apparently what they call a grower)
Now i have been suffering from this since i can remember, It has taking a huge amount of my life away, i feel as i would of been a more successful man if i didn't, i avoid at all cost going OUT yes it sucks that bad, i go out only when necessary.
Here is what is weird i guess the good part? i have never been ashamed in the sex act, i mean i wouldn't pull it out until my penis was erect but never had a problem besides a girl saying i had small testicles.
Now i am married and have beautiful children, apparently extremely small testicles does not affect this :) Grateful for that, as in the back of my head i was always concerned if i was going to be able to produce children.
Ok so the problem the big huge problem....
The bulge in my pants... yes many of you might think this is stupid but this is the reason i tend to hide from public. I have considered shoving a sock or something down there but i think it would be worst or maybe it is just the fear of looking funny.
Please do not say people do not look or don't notice because believe it or not they DO, some are even loud and shameless to say "did you see that guy" some stare and some laugh, this goes without fail every single time i am out. Well i will not drag any longer, simply saying that i am suffering in this body i was giving. I wear baggy clothes ( don't like them but have no choice)
Please please !!!! Any solution is welcomed , i have tried using... pumps, stretchers, pills etc nothing does the job, you might be thinking im stupid for trying any of these things put i am desperate and willing to try it all. Sadly i was thinking in my head while someone was staring and laughing that i would gladly give an arm for a normal package ( i know that sounds extreme but it is true)
So again any help? i can not seem to find much information about the subject , i guess my main goal is the testicles since this would give me the bulge i want.
Money wouldn't be a problem, and surgery is very acceptable if it is an option, like i said there is just not enough info about anything.
I do have an appointment booked with GP. Its about 7 ,months since I had my vasectomy, and still experience pain in the left side, sometimes it does get uncomfortable and sore. What I have noticed too is my penis smells and I often get a small build up of white stuff on the penis head under my foreskin. I wash it every day, but notice it seems to happen once I start urinating, I haven't notice any change of smell when I urinate though. Can infection be caused this long after the procedure?View 1 Replies
The best way about a vasectomy is to NOT have one. Anyone who thinks that they have got away without problems just can not say anything as PVPS can come on at any time until we die I know a friend who is in his mid-seventies and has more pain than in the whole of his life.View 4 Replies
Hi I am looking for help I have just had my second vasectomy done just 2 weeks ago due to a failed vasectomy the first time. I have 2 large lumps 1 at the incision site and 1 and the opposite end of the incision and they are both causing me a lot of pain which runs down my leg I have seen my doctor but has told me to give it a couple of months but I didn't get any pain like this the first time. Can a second vasectomy increase any chances of side effects or chronic pain.View 1 Replies

I've been having various health problems over the past 8 months. However, one symptoms that I have been having is purple knuckles. I was curious to know if anyone has raynaud's only in their knuckles? It heavily affects the top knuckles closest to the wrist, especially the one on my pinky. However, all the knuckles have been affected at some point. The main reason I don't believe it's raynaud's is because it doesn't affect the top of the fingers at all and I don't have any other color change except purple. It doesn't happen every time I am cold and they don't seem to hurt or tingle when they change colors.View 3 Replies
