So finally you have changed your mind about having Vasectomy Reversal, and wish to know a few things in order to understand if it can actually be reversed. But let me tell you that surgery is a much more complicated process when compared to vasectomy.
During the entire process of vasectomy, the doctors would cut the tubes or the blocks, that help in carrying your sperm from the testis to the penis. But when it comes to the Vasectomy Reversal, your doctor will have to rejoin the tubes together so that the sperm can reach the penis at ease.
Who should have this done?
If you have actually changed your mind and wish to start a family of your own, then Vasectomy Reversal is for you. Even individuals who have lost their child consider this process. For a small number of men the entire process might be helpful to relieve the pain that was caused due to your previous Vasectomy.
How Effective is this procedure?
Sperms usually start appearing in your semen after a few months of Vasectomy Reversal. This even increases the chances of your partner getting pregnant. You might have to wait a bit longer before the sperms appear again. And this happens only when your doctor finds any kind of a blockage in the vas deferens or say the epididymis.
The chances of having your partner get pregnant will be around 30 to 70 percent. And might even turn out to be low if it has been more than ten years for your Vasectomy. The other factors that might turn out to affect the ability of having children include:
- Your age
- Partners age
- Your partner fertility
- Blockage of sperm due to scar tissue.
What’s recovery like, especially for this procedure?
Your doctor would turn out to give you a ice pack or a cold compressor right after the surgery. This will in turn help you to keep your scrotum from the swelling. You might even be asked to wear a tight inner wear, as this would help to keep your scrotum from moving around too much and the incision does not turn out to open up.
After the surgery there might be a few complications as well. Seek your doctor's help immediately if
You get to have some pain or redness around the incision
