Leslie, T. A., Illing, R. O., Cranston, D. W., & Guillebaud, J. (2007). The incidence of chronic scrotal pain after vasectomy: a prospective audit. The Elliot-Smith Clinic, The Churchill Hospital, Oxford, UK, 100(6), 1330–1333. doi:10.1111/j.1464-410X.2007.07128.x
In all, 593 (94.7%) men returned the preoperative questionnaires and were entered into the study; 488 (82.2%) of these completed the follow-up questionnaire, giving a mean (SD) follow-up of 6.8 (1.6) months. In all, 65 men reported new- onset scrotal pain at 7 months (14.7%). The mean visual analogue score for this pain was 3.4/10. Four men (0.9%) in the responding group described pain after vasectomy as ‘quite severe and noticeably affecting their quality of life’.
