Vasectomy is a simple surgical procedure that involves blocking or cutting the vas deferens. Sperm – microscopic cells that connect to a woman’s ovum, thereby causing pregnancy, are produced in the testicles. The spermatozoa leave the testes through two tubes called vas and mix with other fluids to form sperm. Sperm in sperm can fertilize an egg if it is in a woman’s vagina. Can a man still ejaculate after a vasectomy?
At the outset, we will directly answer the main question – vasectomy does not reduce the quality of ejaculation. Ejaculation is in many cases even of much higher quality.
Studies show that after vasectomy statistically, up to 3% less semen can be secreted during a single ejaculation. So it’s virtually unnoticeable amount. However, research shows another very interesting phenomenon.
Uncertainty associated with unwanted pregnancy often causes a lot of stress. Stress can negatively affect the quality and quantity of sperm. It is also a factor that reduces many other functions of our body. Which indirectly also affects our sex life. We get a lot by getting rid of stress. Also in terms of quality and quantity of ejaculation.
Will vasectomy affect my sex drive?
The amount of semen in the semen has no known relationship with sex drive.
But worrying about having a baby, taking on more responsibility because of an unintended pregnancy, or spending money on birth control can have a mental impact. After vasectomy, you may find that your confidence in sexual activities increases without these fears.
For this reason, some may not be surprised by research, they suggest that sex drive can improve after vasectomy.
Vasectomy – advantages
Vasectomy is one of the most effective methods of contraception, thanks to which it reduces stress associated with a possible unwanted pregnancy. This means that vasectomy can have a positive effect on sex life and improve relationships. In addition, vasectomy has no endocrine disruption and does not cause a decrease in libido, mood swings, weight gain, etc.
Vasectomy is performed once. So it eliminates the risk of forgetting to do something that protects against pregnancy, e.g. take a birth control pill, put on a condom, check your fertile and infertile days. Thanks to it, you do not have to visit the pharmacy regularly and remember about contraception. It allows you to enjoy sex at any time.
Vasectomy allows a man to decide on contraception on his own – he does not have to rely on a sexual partner.
