How is a vasectomy reversal performed?

A vasectomy reversal is performed under local anaesthetic combined with light general anaesthesia, which ensures a safe procedure. The procedure begins with a small incision made over the old vasectomy site. The two ends of the vas deferens are identified, freed from the surrounding scar tissue, and then reconnected. The surgery usually takes 1 to 2 hours.  You can expect to go home on the same day as a routine vasectomy reversal.

Vasectomy reversal success rates

Chances for success depend on many factors including the method of vasectomy that was done and, most importantly, the length of time since the vasectomy was performed.

Recovery after vasectomy reversal surgery

Pain is mild to moderate, similar to what you experienced in your vasectomy, and can be treated with medication. You should be able to resume normal physical activities, including sex, within three weeks.

How long will it take to conceive after vasectomy reversal surgery?

Results are not immediate; it may be months or more before fertility and a normal sperm count are restored. After a vasectomy, some men produce anti-sperm antibodies that can make it more difficult for pregnancy to occur once it is reversed. A successful reversal can lead to conception, typically within 12 to 24 months.
