Hi, about fifteen years ago I had a vasectomy at age thirty. Initially I didn't notice any change in my vigorous sexual response. Over time though my ability to obtain and maintain an erection has reduced significantly. I attributed this to the normal aging process, stress of life and lack of practice as I chose to spend two years celibate.
I am a fit 45 year old, who exercises regularly, five or six days per week, and have never smoked. I do tend to be a little hypertensive but normal BP is maintained with a very low dose medication.
I don't feel particularly hung up about this as my lovers in recent years have been understanding and patient women and 'things' seem to work out OK in the end. However, I wonder if the vasectomy might have effected a hormonal change that is significant to my erectile functioning?
I'm thinking of having the vasectomy repaired - is this likely to be successful (success being able to father a child) and could a vasectomy repair improve my erection?
Thanks for your help/
