What to Ask Your Doctor About Your Vasectomy Reversal Options

Vasectomy reversal can restore your ability to have children naturally with your spouse. If you are considering this procedure, it’s important to discuss your options with your vasectomy reversal surgeon to ensure you understand the type of procedure that is best for you, as well as what to expect after your vasectomy has been reversed.

Which procedure is best for me?

There are two types of vasectomy reversals performed today: the vaso-vasostomy and the vaso-epididymostomy. While the first type of procedure is more common, your condition may necessitate the second procedure if there is an obstruction in or damage to the vas deferens or epididymis. Thus, the type of vasectomy reversal that is best for you is based on your personal condition; your surgeon will explain why the procedure he recommends is the best solution for you.

How long will recovery take?

Vasectomy reversals are outpatient procedures, meaning you can return home immediately after the surgery. In most cases, recovery takes approximately three to four weeks from the day of your surgery to the complete return to your normal schedule; however, you’ll be able to return to most normal activities after four to five days, and will only need to restrict heavy lifting or physical exertion for up to four weeks.

How soon can we conceive?

Most couples who successfully conceive following vasectomy reversal achieve pregnancy within one year. However, it can take longer than a year for your fertility to be restored. Vasectomy reversals result in successful conception in 40-75% of cases; if you are concerned about the potential for infertility after the procedure, talk to your surgeon about further steps you can take.
