Vasectomy And Loss Of Sex Drive.Due to the sexless nature of our marriage and the Talk in October etc, etc H has finally done something about his lack of desire and seen the doctor.
Very interesting it was too!
Firstly - his testosterone is actually higher than average and he should be very, very keen to have sex and lots of it (so something wrong there). Doctor suggested his lack of desire was probably psychological.
Secondly - the doctor didn't know why he had been referred as everything is in working order - then he asked him whether he had had a vasectomy and who had suggested it? Often it is the wife....... quite what we are to read into that I am not sure. Except that if it's not the man's idea he maybe reluctant but not wanting to argue?..... and yes, I had suggested it - because I had recently had an extremely difficult birth with our second child, we knew we didn't want another, and I didn't want to remain on the pill ad infintum so why not him? It's an easier op for men than having your tubes tied as a woman. Or that is what we had been told.
After the vasectomy H was in quite a lot of pain for a few weeks.
The Doctor then said that many men after a vasectomy lose their sex drive. This is mainly psychological!
We were never informed of this - if I had known I for one would never have asked.
I would like to say that H is being to retrieve his sex drive, still not quite there, but there is improvement.
Has anyone else known of this side effect of having a vasectomy? A loss of sex drive?
Sex drive is slowly returning - but he has mentioned also that there was a significant loss of sensation when ej####lating - has anyone else had this problem too?
