I know even the title makes me .

Anyhow, 8 (nearly 9) yrs ago dh had the snip. As soon as he had had it done, he stopped getting (ill use the medical term as its mildly better) smegma. So he hasnt had it all this time. Therefore we assume that it's the actual sperm in the semen that produces this revoltingness. BUT .. Now he notices it has come back. Therefore does that mean his body is releasing sperm again and that his vascetomy has now failed?? I've googled like mad and there is lots of anecdotal 'evidence' that vasectomies can heal themselves after 7/8 yrs. please please does anyone know?? Thank you and sorry for the tmi!

There are two ways to find out:

  1. Your dh goes to the gp and asks for a fertility test

2. You wait and see if you get pregnant

Which one do you fancy?

Haha would the gp laugh like a drain I wonder?! Option b is the one I am hoping for tbh. For about 4 yrs I have wanted one more baby whilst knowing I couldn't have one. We def made the wrong decision with the vascectomy! Just don't want to get my hopes up I guess if this thing is unrelated.

Smegma isn't sperm. If it was, women wouldn't get it too...
