Hi everyone!

I’m going to pin this thread as an FAQ for newcomers. Reply to the thread with new questions/answers and I’ll revise the main post with new content.

If anyone else wants to volunteer to admin stuff, speak up! I’m happy to promote active posters to help administer the forum.

The PVPS FAQ You Wish You Weren’t Reading

but well. here we are.


Q: I had a vasectomy less than 5 months ago, and I’m in pain - should I consult someone?

A: Recovery from a vasectomy may take up to 5 months, it’s not the common case, but it’s far from unusual. You should probably try a conservative non-invasive treatment if pain is a problem. Over the counter anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen may help. Talk with your GP and urologist. If they have never heard of PVPS, you should consider finding a urologist who has expertise in the field.

Q: Is there a list of specialists?
