Dating after a vastectomy
Some physicians will want to check another specimen 6-12 weeks later to confirm sterility.
This means that simply looking for a scar is not a reliable way to verify if a man has had a vasectomy.
This operation is performed with a sharp pair of forceps that puncture the scrotal skin rather than slicing it open.
This form of vasectomy leaves almost no visible scarring once healed.
As mentioned previously, many men never go back for a post-vasectomy semen analysis.
While the success rates of vasectomy are very high, there’s simply no way to be sure until the sperm count results are in.
