What To Expect Pain-Wise From A Vasectomy In NYC


As daunting an idea it may be to become 99% infertile in a day’s time, the scariest aspect of a vasectomy in NY for most men is the potential pain they may experience in such a sacred region of the body. Of all places to have an operation, understandably, most men would put their sexual organs near last place on the hierarchy if it were up to them.

That’s a reasonable concern, but only in theory. Because in reality, a vasectomy is one of the safest surgical procedures a man can have. Not to mention that with modern technology, the operation is less invasive than ever before. Experts now are able to perform a vasectomy in NYC without using a needle or a scalpel. Additionally, in the interest of optimized comfort, patients are usually sedated beforehand, and the procedure typically takes no more than 10 to 20 minutes.

That’s not to say that no pain or discomfort is ever experienced, especially in recovery, even with the best urologists in New York. But in the vast majority of cases, two pills of pain medicine directly following the procedure, another before bed, and a fourth the morning after have proven to sufficient in lessening the pain to being no more than a bit of discomfort.

Recognize that the horror stories you’ve read on the Internet are extreme instances that have happened in exceptionally rare occasions. And by exceptional, we’re talking less than 1 percent of men who have received vasectomy. That said, you, as a patient, have the right to know what kind of pain, in the exceedingly unlikely chance that you fit into that less than 1%, could happen months to years after the procedure.

Epididymitis is when sperm leaks due to backpressure from the vasectomy. It isn’t infectious, so you need not worry about antibiotic medicine. The best remedy is a bit of ice, some ibuprofen, and rest while your body fixes itself.

In the event that the vasectomy was performed too low, or rather, too close to the testicle as opposed to higher up in the scrotum, there is higher potential for sperm to build up in a painful way. This is known as congestive pain, and is equally as rare. If it does happen, however, the best solution is to get a vasectomy reversal in New York, and to then redo the procedure higher up in the scrotum.

The one risk that, is relatively high, in comparison to the others, is neurogenic pain. As you most definitely already know, the scrotum is a very sensitive area, meaning there are quite a few nerves that can potentially be pinched. But with that said, we would like to urge you not to worry. With the right expert urologist, a vasectomy in NYC will only serve its intended purpose and you will be feeling as good as new in no time.
