    My husband had a vasectomy in Feb this year. He hasn’t been the same since. He has low sex drive and it isn’t sensitive like it used to be. He has a hard time getting an erection and if he gets one, it doesn’t want to stay for a while. We have three Children and didn’t want another one. I put a lot of pressure on my husband to get this done against his will.

    Could this all be in his head like I have read on the internet or does it sound like there is a physical problem? I am a very frustrated wife right now because there is no romance in our marriage. Any information that you can give me would greatly be appreciated.

    Vasectomy does not have any effect on a man’s sexual function, only his fertility. Vasectomy does not alter a man’s erection. Sexual drive, or libido, is related to a man’s hormonal status. This is, likewise, unaffected by a vasectomy. The only difference a man experiences in sexual function after a vasectomy is a slight decrease in ejaculate volume (approximately 5%). However, this is unnoticeable by most men. Most of the ejaculate (95%) comes from the prostate and seminal vesicles which are unaffected by a vasectomy.
