Vasectomy Reversal Information

 

Vasectomy is a sterilisation operation i.e. it will make you unable to father further children.

 

Whilst vasectomy can be reversed, you should consider this operation to be permanent as reversal is technically quite difficult, expensive and by no means always successful.

 

Vasectomy Reversal

 

This operation involves removing the blocked and scarred portions of vas and mobilising the two ends sufficiently for them to be rejoined using micro-surgical techniques. Because of the fine nature of the surgery and the equipment required, this operation on average takes 2 hours.

 

In approximately 85% of men sperm will return to the ejaculate. However, only 50% will father a child successfully. The operation is expensive and the bottom line is that if you are not really sure whether you want to have more children in the future then vasectomy is not the operation for you.
