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.
