In researching vasectomies, I read a brochure from the Couple to Couple League (www.ccli.org) that indicated that an autoimmune response to his own sperm could result after a man has had a vasectomy. I have searched medline and other online databases, and can find no information that supports that assertion. The brochure stated that diseases like diabetes and MS were possible. The brochure gave references, but mostly to old (circa 1970s) studies. Has anyone else heard of this? Have there been any new studies? Thanks!
