Approximately five percent of males who have undergone a vasectomy reversal procedure will eventually choose to have it reversed over the course of their lifetimes. The decision to have more children is one of the most important you and your spouse will ever make, which is why it is imperative to select the right reverse vasectomy doctor.
Although there are several solutions available, more often than not the reverse vasectomy procedure teds to be the most successful and most affordable option. There are a variety of reasons that men may consider having a reverse vasectomy, including the desire to have additional children or to become pregnant after a re-marriage. In a few instances, some men have reported having discomfort after their initial vasectomy either immediately following their procedure or several years later. In these cases, a vasectomy reversal is a reliable solution to relieve this discomfort.
If you and your partner have decided to have more children, it’s very important that you pursue your reverse vasectomy as soon as possible. Although the sperm may return to the ejaculate as soon as 2 months after your procedure, in some cases it can take as long as 12 months for the sperm count to regulate. Even if you plan on waiting a few years to become pregnant, having the procedure early on will curb the amount of time you will have to wait to achieve regularity.
Success rates for reverse vasectomy procedures are usually very high, but in some cases sperm does fail to return to the ejaculate or take longer than expected. If sperm hasn’t returned after one year, the reverse vasectomy procedure is considered unsuccessful. One of the determining factors as to whether a procedure will be successful or not is the quality of the initial vasectomy that was performed.
If the reverse vasectomy is selected, it typically takes anywhere between three and five hours to complete the procedure. With no stay over required, recovery is normally short and the patient is able to return to work within three days as long as there is no heavy lifting required.
