How Soon Can Sperm Be Present in Semen After the Surgery?

When you undergo vasectomy reversal surgery, it’s normal to be eager to know if the reversal was successful, particularly if you are trying to start a family. There is a high rate of success for vasectomy reversal in most cases, but there often is a delay between the procedure and when sperm can again be detected in semen.

About three months after surgery, your doctor may recommend that you undergo a semen test to see if sperm are present. If the semen does not contain sperm, your vasectomy surgeon may recommend repeating the test monthly to until sperm is detected. Generally, vasectomy reversals are considered to have failed if sperm cannot be found in semen 18 months after the surgery.

Since each case is unique, Dr. Joshua Green at the Center for Vasectomy Reversal will review your individual circumstance in full and help you understand what to expect.
