    I was just kidding. If you have your balls, and they are still working, you are still producing testosterone . On the the reading I've done, the general consensus is that this procedure has no effect on testosterone production at all - although I found an opinion or two to the contrary. It's easy enough to find out for yourself.

    If you do have low T levels, it is highly likely that it's being caused by something else.

    Doctors already talking about trt and I haven't even got my blood work done. Shouldn't I be trying to figure out why its low and try to fix it before jumping to trt?

    Yes, you should get full BW. Use the example in the Finding A Doc sticky at the top of this forum. Many things can cause low T. AAS, Thyroid, cortisol, prolactin, pathologies, trauma, etc....

    Only thing the doc has labeled to get tested is for test free&total and prolactin. Will the test show more or just what he asks for?

    Only what he asks for. I'd call him up and ask for full BW like in the sticky. Express your concern and that you don't want to go on TRT if a problem is fixable.

    There have been a few studys showing a vasectomy can actually cause a small increase to Testosterone levels , and I have heard of a few individual cases where a vasectomy has caused a decrease.

    If it were me, it would not be something I would be worrying about at this time. More important to concentrate on getting the correct blood work done. Check out the Finding a Physician sticky for a list of tests you'll want to get.

    I dont remember if you was you or someone else talking about a vasectomy last week but consider getting some of you swimmers frozen before you do the vasectomy. Trust me, you never know what the future may hold.

    Haha Lov I'm good man, I've already got 3 kids I'm done. I asked about problems with my vasectomy a few weeks ago. The doc checked all over my nuts and externally checked my prostate. He said everything looked good.

    He then started asking questions and said it sounded like my test was low. I'm about to give blood, gonna tell them to check everything. Squeezed my nipple last night and I'm lactating.... Wtf.. I haven't cycled in 6 months or more

    Like I said, you never know what the future will hold.

    Wow that's weird. Hope he is checking your estrogen. Did you have gyno signs?

    Oh yeah then for sure. I got mine done 12 years ago when I had a spermatocele removed. Talk about no balls, they had to actually take everything out so so I had them do it the.

    Well this way you can get the insurance to cover any lipo to remove the gyno and the gland.

    Did they actually have to remove your nuts?

    And my buddy(we call him titty haha) at work did a dbol only cycle no AI or anything, no pct. But he has a solid b cup in his left tit, tried to get it removed a few months ago but our insurance wouldn't pay for it.

    No, not removed but had to take them out of the sack fully to remove the spermatocele. I had stitches from the front to the back of the sack down the middle.

    Doc told me ahead of time there are 2 parts of the body that swell up when exposed to air. The brain and balls. It really was not that bad. I never missed any work and just took an ice pack with me for a couple of days and no lifting for a few weeks.

    Only issue I had was ripping a few stitches when I went jet skiing 10 days later. lol

    No they wont for cosmetic reasons. You have to say it's painful so it's a medical need.

    OK never mind. They had to take your nuts out for the procedure and you had your vasectomy while they were there.

    Did they tie or cut and burn your tubes? They tied mine. Even years later my nuts are still getting sucked up in my lower stomach by my dick.

    Ommggg man. I couldn't imagine. I only had two stitches. Took out 1 by myself. And still have half of the other one in there.

    I'm not sure if its mental or what, but my libido never has been the same after I had it done. I used to be able to do it 4-6 times a day now i hardly ever wanna do it

    I did get a little concerned when I saw white fleshy looking stuff coming out where the stitches ripped and had to push it back in.

    Doctor said it was just fatty tissue and not worry but STOP riding the jet ski for a few weeks. Man it was almost 90 out. What did he expect. LoL

    No libido issue but I did notice the volume dropped off about 1/2. I know they say it can't effect that but????

    Lol omg man that's too much. My nuts were itching a few days after mine was done. I was taking a piss and scratching my balls, looked down and saw something white coming out of the incision, my heart dropped, I thought I had a worm or parasite. Turns out it was a stitch haha

    Yeah I've noticed that too. I can't blow a load like I used to. Ive read different things about it.

    My guess... Everyone's different and everything is gonna affect us differently. That's my bro science.

    Oh I found an endocrinologist at the states best hospital only a 1.5 hour drive. From reading all the stickies and google searching I don't think this doc knows what he's doing. And its a nice looking lady so that's a plus I'm gonna be like.... My nuts hurt realllly bad can you see if something's wrong?

    LoL it always helps to have a lady doc for things like that. I changed to a Filipino lady doc right before I needed my 1st prostate exam.
