    Making Pregnancy Possible After a Vasectomy Reversal

    Last updated 12 days ago

    The success rate of couples trying to conceive after a vasectomy reversal is comparable to that of couples who have not been affected by a vasectomy. However, it may take some time to conceive. After a vasectomy reversal, it may take 12 to 18 months for sperm to be present in semen. You can improve the chances of conceiving a child by evaluating potential factors that may contribute to female infertility, such as medical conditions such as endometriosis and uterine fibroids.

    What You Need to Know About Home Semen Analysis

    Last updated 19 days ago

    After you have a vasectomy reversal, it can take a while for sperm to once again be present in your semen. Previously, laboratory testing was required to check for the presence of sperm. Now, you can use a home semen analysis kit to evaluate the success of a vasectomy reversal. However, bear in mind that a home testing kit will not offer results as accurate and comprehensive as those you’ll find from a doctor’s office.

    Using the Test

    The home semen analysis kit you use may offer slightly different instructions; follow the instructions on the label. In general; however, you can expect to ejaculate into a collection cup. Then, you’ll mix the semen with a solution, provided with the kit. A certain number of drops of the mixed solution are then placed on a testing device. In a few minutes, you’ll have a positive or negative result.

    Evaluating the Results

    A positive result indicates that your sperm count is above 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen. This is on the low end of a normal sperm count and it’s the minimum required for pregnancy. A negative result means that you may need to wait for a longer period of time after the vasectomy reversal. However, a home testing kit doesn’t analyze other factors that contribute to male infertility, such as sperm motility and sperm morphology. For comprehensive results, it’s best to work with a doctor.

    Improving Male Fertility

    In addition to undergoing a vasectomy reversal, there are a few steps you can take to improve the concentration and vitality of your sperm. Eat a healthy diet that emphasizes fruits, vegetables, and monounsaturated fats. Quit smoking, if applicable, and avoid taking hot baths.

    Dr. Green at the Center for Vasectomy Reversal has extensive training and experience in helping countless couples conceive a child after a vasectomy. When you choose to have a vasectomy reversal at our clinic, you’ll have access to comprehensive patient education and the highest quality of care.

    What Fatherhood Is Like for Older Dads

    Last updated 25 days ago

    Often, a change in life circumstances or a change of heart leads men to consider a vasectomy reversal. Men who undergo a vasectomy reversal may be more apt to be older fathers. Becoming a father later in life thanks to a vasectomy reversal grants a man a unique perspective on parenting. Older dads may not have the same level of energy they once did; however, they do have a great deal more life experience, and quite often, more patience for childhood antics.

    Setting Priorities

    After having a vasectomy reversal, older dads may be more apt to find that after taking care of work obligations, errands, and other requirements, they have less energy available to play with their kids. By necessity, older dads learn to prioritize activities and events to ensure that the kids get a fair share of their attention.

    Applying Life Lessons

    Adults may notice that the older they become, the better able they are to learn practical lessons from making mistakes and to apply those life lessons to future scenarios. While younger men may take it personally when plans go awry, older men may be more likely to rise to the occasion. This healthy level of self-confidence serves older men well when they become fathers. Happy, confident parents often translate to happy, well-adjusted kids.

    Living Mindfully

    Men experience stress at every age. However, younger men may be more likely to let the pressures of life influence their reactions and attitudes. With their years of life experiences, older men may be better able to live mindfully, to moderate their reactions, and to prevent the pressures of life from influencing their mood. Living mindfully lends itself to stability at home and the ability to treasure the little moments of life.

    The Center for Vasectomy Reversal provides state-of-the-art treatments with a personalized approach for men who wish to become fathers after having a vasectomy. You can learn more about vasectomy reversals by scheduling an appointment with our vasectomy reversal surgeon, Dr. Green. Connect with our office by calling (941) 462-4647 or visiting our website.

    Spotlight on MESA

    Last updated 1 month ago

    If you and your partner plan to conceive using in vitro fertilization after you’ve had a vasectomy, the MESA procedure could be the perfect solution. Rather than being a true vasectomy reversal, MESA is a procedure during which your doctor will harvest sperm to be used for in vitro fertilization. 

    MESA stands for microscopic epididymal sperm aspiration. During MESA, the surgeon uses an operating microscope to find and remove sperm directly from the epididymis while minimizing blood and fluid contamination. Thanks to the precision allowed by the microscope, success rates for MESA are extremely high. Before the procedure, your doctor will review anesthesia options with you. Although the procedure can be performed with a local anesthetic, most men opt for some kind of sedative in addition to the local anesthetic to help them stay still during the surgery.

    If you’re planning to conceive using in vitro fertilization, find out how undergoing MESA at the Center for Vasectomy Reversal can help. You can learn more about vasectomy reversal by calling (941) 462-4647.
