This is my best guess as well. There are definitely a couple/few stories on here that “suggest” the same.
I’m not a believer in open ended vasectomys being safer on any level, including the pressure relief ideology, but I have no idea what kind of vasectomy @Twcross had either.
I am a believer that open ended vasectomys scar closed, and scar in general just the same as a closed ended.
The inflammatory response that comes with open ended vasectomy risks (leaking sperm) certainly contradicts the “open ended is safer” ideology at minimum.
Seems I’ve read stories of guy’s that had either open ended vasectomy, or closed ended vasectomy that reported pain relief via ejaculating.
The NHS typically does open ended vasectomy exclusively, and they site 10% (1 in 10) will have chronic pain (pvp/s).
This is a pretty odd story, but this kind of stuff is not unheard of. Generally, these kind of stories are just the opposite.
