The purpose of a vasectomy is to stop the flow of the sperm cells produced in the testes to the urethra. Basically the tubes are cut and tied off. There is no change to sexual functioning afterwards, you will still ejaculate, it will still feel the same (the amount of sperm that is usually ejaculated is about the size of a pin head - very very small quantity compared to the 5mls of other fluids that make up the ejaculate - so the difference will not be noticeable). You still have to be careful for a few months after this minor operation because there could potentially be a small residue of sperm in the tubes or the operation may not have been completely successful (this is very rare), but this is checked after a couple of months by providing a sample of ejaculate (come) and having it examined to check whether sperm is present or not.

I applaud all the men who go for the vasectomy. It makes everything so much easier on us women. No interferences with our hormones and invasive mirenas etc.

My hubby went for one. Everything remains exactly the same. He also went in the morning by himself, and came back at 2pm. he was albe to walk drive etc. was just a bit " stiff"  feeling. We waited 2 weeks and carried on normally. just use a condom for the first 3-4 times.

I did the Vasectomy thing and everything remains the same as before the Vasectomy. Only difference, no worries about babies, condoms, contraceptives, just limitless sex with no holds barred. Sex much better!!! Obviously with the same partner being married for 15 years. As the saying goes, a Vasectomy turns you into a Sports Model. Way to go.
