vasectomy reversal

Life is constantly shifting and changing. While many men choose to undergo a vasectomy, we understand that circumstances change.

We look after many men in this situation. If you are interested in a vasectomy reversal, we would be delighted to help.

what is a vasectomy reversal?

A vasectomy reversal is a surgical procedure that reconnects the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra.

This allows the sperm to be ejaculated during sexual intercourse and potentially achieve a pregnancy.

The procedure is typically performed under general anaesthesia and involves microsurgical techniques to precisely reconnect the vas deferens. It usually takes 2-4 hours. The success of the procedure depends on factors such as how long it has been since the original vasectomy.

Many people are surprised at our success rates.The success of a vasectomy reversal (seeing sperm in the ejaculate) varies based on the time since the initial vasectomy.

Literature suggests that overall success rates of vasectomy reversal range from 40-90%. It is important to remember that pregnancy rates are heavily influenced by a female partner’s age and fertility status.

Vasectomy reversal is a complex surgery that requires a skilled and experienced surgeon. If you are considering a vasectomy reversal, it is important to speak with a specialist urologist like Dr Blecher who can evaluate your individual situation and determine if this is the best option for you.

Following a successful reversal, men should expect to regain their fertility within a few months. The procedure is generally safe, but like any surgery, there are potential risks, such as infection, bleeding and damage to surrounding tissues.

However, the benefits of a successful vasectomy reversal can be life-changing, allowing men to have the opportunity to father children that they may have thought were no longer possible.
