Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy is a surgical procedure, a form of male birth control that will cut the supply of sperm to the semen. This is done by cutting the tube that carries the sperm. Getting a vasectomy means you will not father a child in the future. Although it can be reversed, vasectomy is considered a permanent form of male birth control. But vasectomy won’t be able to protect you from sexually transmitted infections. To know more about vasectomy, please visit

But some men who have undergone vasectomy will later want reversal. Often, it is because of a new partner or when he has simply decided that he wants more children. Additionally, a percentage of men who undergo vasectomy develop chronic scrotal pain, often requiring a vasectomy reversal to ease the pain.

In a vasectomy reversal procedure, surgery is performed to reconnect the vans deferens that was cut during the vasectomy procedure. There are two vasectomy reversal procedures that can be performed should you wish to push through with the procedure:

  • Vasovasostomy – where ends of the cut vas deferens are stitched together
  • Vasoepididymostomy – where the blocked vas deferens is reconnected to the unblocked epididymis by creating a bypass around it

Vasovasostomy has generally had a higher success rate of 90-95 percent than that of a vasoepididymostomy procedure, which only has a 65-70 percent.

After undergoing a vasectomy reversal, you will be advised by your doctor to stay off your feet for a few days. Take a rest. Although the pain will be manageable, it might be possible that you will still need pain medication. You will also need to apply ice packs to your scrotum to reduce the swelling. You can return to work and to your routine activities three (3) days after the procedure, but strenuous activities and ejaculation should be avoided for two (2) weeks.

One of the most common misconceptions about vasectomy reversal is that it is no longer possible after a period of time. Although your age can be a factor, there is no cut-off where vasectomy reversal will not work. Vasectomy reversal can be done even after 30 years from when you had your vasectomy procedure.
