Comment from: OMG-What-happened, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: April 26

Log entry day 5 after vasectomy. I had an experienced doctor and if I had to do over I would with the same doctor. Key is I would not do again. During procedure it is very painful and well I’m writing this in the middle of the night not because I work graveyard shift nor the fact everyone else is asleep. I can’t sleep. At this point I use a condom and take a 3 percent or less chance for 18 plus years. In a bit more seriousness mode, severe bruising, pain and walking like a cartoon cowboy happened. I can’t stress enough ice and bed.
