What should I expect during recovery from a vasectomy?
During recovery, active sperm will remain in the reproductive system and will take time before they are completely gone. Until an exam is conducted to ensure that the patient is sterile, other contraceptives should be used to prevent pregnancy. After the procedure, the body will continue to produce sperm. However, since it no longer has an outlet from the body, the sperm dies and is absorbed by the body.
After the procedure, the recommended recovery time is two days. However, this can vary based on the patient. To avoid complications, the patient should stay off of his feet as much as possible during the recovery time
