So I know I'm new here, but I've been reading on this site a lot for quite a while. I had a vasectomy around a year ago at age 39 after my wife and I were done with children and I didn't want to use condoms during sex for the rest of my life.
The procedure itself was pretty much a piece of cake but 3 months later I started having a pressure-like pain in my left nut which stayed all day and would get worse day by day and week by week and eventually it just became completely unbearable, it was like a 5/10 pain all day and then occasionally it would be like a 7 or 8. I contacted the doctor who performed the procedure but he wasn't very useful. He just prescribed me some ibuprofen and told me it would likely go away eventually. My daily dose of ibuprofen did make it slightly better but I wasn't satisfied. I then researched vasectomy complications more thoroughly and found this forum and all the other information out there on PVPS that I wasn't told about by my doctor or by my friends who underwent this procedure... I then decided that because my pain felt like a pressure, it was likely congestion related and that it's all down to the fact that my body is stil producing sperm basically. Usually, reversal is a procedure that is recommended for this. However, I didn't really want to go back to having to use condoms every time for sex again and so I looked for alternatives. Using testosterone supplements to stop sperm production didn't seem like a good idea either.
I eventually, just 3 months ago, found some information on papaya seeds and their effect on male fertility. According to studies and many anecdotal posts on the internet, papaya seeds reduce sperm count and can even cause full blown infertility in men when consumed daily for up to 3 months. I researched this more thoroughly and then found a review on amazon on this product here from bulksupplements, saying it worked for this person as a male contraceptive after only taking 1/2 tsp twice a day for a month.
I then decided that since papaya seeds appear to have spermicidal properties, I should give this product a try, so I got it and started taking 1/2 tsp twice a day and to my surprise, it worked! Gradually, over the next few weeks, my pressure pain alleviated! After over a month of taking my powder twice a day, my left nut finally felt the same as it did before the vasectomy.
I highly, highly recommend you give this a try if you think you have congestive pain! This is definitely a good alternative to using high doses of testosterone or getting a reversal done. For those with autoimmune symptoms, I highly recommend this as well.
Thanks for reading. Wish you guys all the best of luck as well.
