Can epididymitis be a complication of vasectomy?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 05/14/2020

Yes. Once a vasectomy is performed, a man may feel a sense of heaviness or discomfort in the genital area. In addition, he may have some testicular inflammation and pain, which could lead to epididymitis.

In these cases, it is essential to inform the specialist so that he can establish the best treatment for each particular case and some advice on how to alleviate the patient's symptoms.
