Questions & Answers (FAQ's)
Will a vasectomy affect my erection?
A vasectomy does NOT affect a man's hormones or erections or 'manhood' in any way. The volume and consistency of the ejaculate is often unchanged. Men need to take it easy after the vasectomy for a day or so, icing as needed. A semen test should be performed 4-6 weeks after the procedure to ensure the vasectomy has been successful.
