The Truth about a Vasectomy and Testosterone Levels

Many men who become naturally deficient in testosterone ponder the relationship between having a vasectomy and testosterone levels if thinking about boosting their testosterone levels with testosterone replacement therapy.

The connection between vasectomy and testosterone production may influence their decision as to whether to have a vasectomy or not.

The correlation between having a vasectomy and testosterone levels is somewhat in dispute. Although some facts about the relationship of having a vasectomy and testosterone production seem to be commonly accepted, other studies of vasectomy and testosterone levels have reached different conclusions.

Research on the matter, however, generally agrees that if there is a correlation between vasectomy and testosterone levels it is probably not a negative one. That is, vasectomies do not cause the manufacture of testosterone to decrease.

Some research concerning having a vasectomy and testosterone levels shows no change in hormone level in the blood.

A link between prostate cancer and the amount of testosterone in the blood sheds light on the subject. The association between prostate cancer, and vasectomy and testosterone production research is sketchy.

For men who already have prostate cancer, increasing testosterone advances the condition. A higher incidence of men who have had vasectomies having prostate cancer indicates a higher relationship between those have had a vasectomy and testosterone production increase.

In 1993 two large research projects concerning vasectomy and testosterone levels were conducted. In one, 10,000 men that had a vasectomy had 1.5 times the chance of getting prostate cancer. The other study of vasectomy and testosterone levels came to the same conclusion.

But in June of 1999 a study of vasectomy and testosterone production showed there was no difference in the number of people who had had vasectomies when prostate cancer victims were surveyed.

After the vasectomy, the apparent lack of testosterone production changes prevent any loss of sexual abilities by the man. The surgery affects neither the subsequent desire for sex by a man nor the frequency at which he can perform it.

A question arises if there is a safe way to boost testosterone levels for men who have vasectomies and suspect they are suffering from low testosterone levels without side effects.

One possible solution lies from using a natural herb called tribulusterrestris. Tribulusterrestris is an herb that has been used by many cultures for at least a thousand years to remedy both sexual and also non-sexual problems.

Tribulusterrestris has no known side effects when used to boost testosterone levels. It may be a safe and effective way to increase testosterone for men who want to have or have had a vasectomy.

In conclusion, it has been shown that vasectomy and testosterone production variation is probably small enough in most cases to make having a vasectomy a safe procedure to undertake.
