Vasectomy is one of the most effective, common and safest forms of birth control. While most men find that any minor post-surgical discomfort resolves within a few days, a small percentage of patients (about 1-2%) experience post-surgical pain months after the procedure. Known as post-vasectomy pain syndrome (PVPS), men can experience a dull ache in the testes or pain during ejaculation several months after the vasectomy. While uncommon, PVPS is a problem that requires the attention and care of an experienced urologist to find the right solution.
