Will a vasectomy lower testosterone?
A vasectomy is a safe and effective form of permanent contraception for men. It involves the sealing or cutting of the tubes (vas deferens) that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. Importantly, a vasectomy does not affect the production of testosterone, the hormone responsible for male sexual development and function.
It’s crucial to note that testosterone levels may naturally decrease with age for some men, but this is unrelated to the vasectomy procedure. If you have concerns about your testosterone levels or experience symptoms such as fatigue, reduced libido, or changes in mood, it is essential to consult with your healthcare provider. They can perform appropriate tests and offer guidance tailored to your specific health needs.
Testosterone is primarily produced in the testicles, and the vasectomy procedure does not interfere with this process. The testicles continue to produce testosterone at normal levels after a vasectomy.
