Q19. How long do I have to wait after my vasectomy before having sex?

A19. The answer is as soon as you feel comfortable to do so. Some surgeons will ask you to wait for a week until you are completely healed before resuming sexual relations. Still continue to use condoms and for up to three months after surgery as it will take this long for any remaining sperm to be cleared out of your tubes.

This is discussed in greater detail in our results of your vasectomy section.
