Which side effects can vasectomy cause?

Dr Louisa Draper

"Any operation carries the risk of some side effects. The most common side effects of vasectomy are bruising, swelling and mild discomfort in the scrotum."

Dr Louisa Draper

Although vasectomy is a common, quick and relatively painless procedure, as with any surgical procedure, it carries the risk of side effects. Most of these are minor and should resolve in time. 

Serious side effects are uncommon or rare. If you have any concerns over side effects after vasectomy, speak to your doctor.
