After a vasectomy it is recommended to wear supportive, tight fitting, comfortable boxer briefs for at least the next 48 hours after the procedure. Many recommend to continue wearing snug boxer briefs after surgery since they provide additional support and keep your bits from rattling around inside your pants. While our underwear is supportive, it is also sexy, comfortable and stylish. On top of that, the easy access three-way fly allows for, arguably, the easiest in and out experience provided by any underwear on the market.
Planning on getting a vasectomy? have some underwear related questions?
Here are a few tips to help with your surgery and recovery:
- This pretty much goes without saying but your balls need to be shaved before going to the surgery.
- Check with your doctor, some want you to shave beforehand and others prefer to shave you during surgery prep.
- If they want you to come pre-shaved and this isn’t something you regularly do, my recommended razor is something like the Gillette Pro Guide Power along with lots of Barbasol (or similar) shaving cream.
- If you have lots of hair down there, don’t try to take all off in a single shaving session. It may take a few days to get rid of it all, so plan ahead.
- After your surgery is completed, you’ll want to wear a tight fitting pair of underwear, such as our Anchor Underwear boxer briefs. Other options include compression shorts and jock straps but a pair of our tight fitting underwear will do you well.
- Wear dark or old underwear as there will likely be a little blood which may stain light colored underwear.
- Another key tip is to wear one pair of dark underwear and then another pair of underwear over top of them. This way you can slip a bag of frozen peas between the two pair of boxer briefs.
- Buy and freeze mixed vegetables or frozen peas before your doctor’s visit so that you have them ready when you get home.
- Keep your schedule open for the day of the surgery and the day after and don’t lift anything heavy or strain yourself during the next few days.
- Remember, you’ll be still shooting “live rounds” for the next 4-10 weeks or so (around 20 ejaculates). Your doctor will check your sperm count and insure that you are shooting blanks.
- Check with your doctor regarding these tips and any medical advice you receive from anyone before implementing them.
