Vasectomy Recovery - Ejaculation?


On Tuesday Oct. 21st at Noon EST, I had a traditional Vasectomy (I assume of a "closed" style).

My recovery appears to be painless, with minimum to no swelling or bruising. I have been off my feet and not left the house since the procedure.  I basically feel great!  Smooth recovery.

I have had continuous regular erections when with My Lady for the past two days, and would like to ejaculate with her NOW! (no intercourse, just ejaculation outside the vagina).

Keeping in mind the need to: 1) not open stitches with physical contact 2) keep stitch area clean at all times, "CAN I SAFELY EJACULATE NOW WITHOUT SETTING BACK MY VASECTOMY RECOVERY PROCESS?", or "WITHOUT CAUSING PHYSICAL DAMAGE TO MY CAUTERIZED VAS OR OTHER SCROTUM/PENILE FUNCTIONS?"

The bottom line is, I do not want to wait 7 days for my first ejaculation, yet I am concerned about physically hurting myself.

What is your opinion on this?

You should not consider resuming sexual intercourse from 72 hours to a couple of weeks following surgery.

Before you do resume sexual activity, remember that you will not be considered sterile for several weeks. Once sexual activity is comfortable for you, it is important to resume ejaculation, since it takes between 10 and 20 ejaculations before any remaining sperm is released. In fact, sperm can remain in the semen for three to six months following your vasectomy.

My opinion is that I would wait at least 1-2 weeks before resume sexual activity and ejaculation so that the incisions can heal correctly.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
