I had my vasectomy last May at age 29 (super young!) My wife (few years older than me) and I were done with having kids and her doctor had cautioned her about long-term use of the contraceptive pill. I was pretty happy to undergo the procedure.
It took me two weeks before I was feeling comfortable and about four weeks before I got back to working out etc. Until about a week ago I had no complaints.
I run a lot and have recently increased my distance from about 3 miles to 5 miles. I’ve been doing that maybe 4/5 times a week.
Just under a week ago my right testicle started aching a bit and varies from being a dull ache to a slightly more intense one at times. right testicle is perhaps a little swolen compared with the left, but its hard to notice that just by looking. It’s more how it feels.
When I can tune it out it doesn’t seem to be a big deal, but I’ve been researching PVPS and stumbled across this forum today.
A couple of questions. Is it possible that in the hot weather when the testes hang a little lower this could result in a higher chance of discomfort?
Secondly, would you guys suggest tighter fitting underwear to keep things from moving about so much, or am I better off letting them breathe?
I’ve not worked out for about five days just in case that was what was causing the problem.
Thanks guys. Here’s hoping the discomfort disappears on its own.
