How Life Changes When You Become a Dad

Father and Son

Men seeking vasectomy reversals are all after the same, life-changing experience: becoming a dad. No matter how sure you are of your decision to enter fatherhood, you’re bound to wonder about the some of the profound changes that inevitably accompany having a child. Once your partner conceives after your vasectomy reversal, what can you expect when your little one enters the world? Here is a look at some of the things new dads report about their new lives.

You Have to Work Harder for “Me” Time

Everyone needs a little downtime in his or her days. Before you have kids, it’s easy to grab 30 minutes here and there for working out, seeing friends, or just relaxing. Babies are demanding, and that makes it a little harder to fit in time for you. Work with your partner to give each other breaks. Taking some time for yourself doesn’t make you selfish. Instead, it will help you become a better dad.

Family Time Takes Precedence

Before you have a child, your social life may revolve around a circle of friends. After your baby is born, social time is more likely to mean outings with the family. While you’ll love spending time with your growing family, don’t forget to keep in touch with your friends and to continue to develop your interests and hobbies. Encourage your partner to do the same.

You’ll Have New Financial Demands

Kids have a lot of financial needs, from diapers and formula to college tuition. It may seem like you could never make enough money to cover them all, but relax. Look around at all of the families with kids who make it. You can too. Spend some time with your partner mapping out a budget. It will make you feel more in control and give you an idea of how your money can best be put to use.

Being a dad will change your life, and undergoing a vasectomy reversal can help you begin this new journey. If you dream of fatherhood, let the Center for Vasectomy Reversal help you achieve that goal. Schedule a consultation today by calling (941) 961-4581 to find out more.

How to Finance Your Vasectomy Reversal Procedure

The first step in financing your vasectomy reversal procedure is determining whether your insurance plan will cover it. Unfortunately, many of them do not provide coverage for infertility treatments. Consult the vasectomy reversal surgeon and obtain a quote for the cost. Be sure to ask if there will be any additional fees. Then, consider sources of funding, such as a savings account or Certificate of Deposit (CD).

Doctor who explains to patient

Many men choose to fund their vasectomy reversal procedures with multiple financing sources. For example, after contributing some of the money with a savings account, you might put the rest of the balance on one or more credit cards. It’s also a good idea to ask the surgeon if his or her office is willing to consider a monthly payment plan.

At the Center for Vasectomy Reversal, we strive to make your vasectomy reversal as affordable as possible. We offer an upfront, all-inclusive quote with no hidden fees and we accept a variety of payment options, including a monthly payment plan.

Can Acupuncture Boost Male Fertility?

Many women visit an acupuncturist to improve their chances of conceiving a child. However, men can also benefit from this complementary therapy. One of the ways acupuncture may help is by improving the quality of sperm. Acupuncture may boost sperm motility, or the movement of sperm to the egg, in addition to sperm count, or the total number of sperm.

A Woman's Guide to Her Partner's Vasectomy Reversal

Dealing with infertility is among the most difficult issues facing couples. Fortunately, if your partner’s infertility is caused by a vasectomy, the two of you do have the option to choose a vasectomy reversal. Vasectomy reversals have helped countless couples experience the incomparable joy of parenthood. Before your partner has the surgery, the two of you may wish to meet with the vasectomy reversal surgeon together to discuss the procedure and what you can expect afterward.

Understand the Procedure

You can support your partner by learning about the procedure itself. Bring a list of your questions and concerns to the consultation with the vasectomy reversal surgeon. You may wish to ask about the chances of conceiving a child afterward, for example, and how long it typically takes for sperm to reappear. You might also ask about the techniques the surgeon may use and what your partner will experience during the recovery.

Consider the Potential Results

The outcomes of vasectomy reversal procedures are generally favorable; many couples have successfully achieved pregnancy after the surgery. The more recent the vasectomy was, the better the chances. Those who had a vasectomy less than five years ago have the best success rate, while those who had it five to 10 years ago have a success rate of about 90 percent.

Undergo Fertility Testing

Before your partner undergoes a vasectomy reversal, you may wish to undergo fertility testing yourself. This may reassure you that there are no other potential issues that may interfere with your ability to conceive a child.

Facilitate a Rapid Recovery

After the vasectomy reversal, you can help your partner recover by encouraging him to rest. Provide cold packs and remind him to keep the ice on for 20 minutes at a time, followed by a 20-minute break. Remember that your partner will be unable to engage in sexual activity for three weeks.

Dr. Joshua Green of the Center for Vasectomy Reversal welcomes your questions about the procedure. You and your partner can schedule a consultation at our office in Sarasota by calling (941) 961-4581. We also invite you to take a few minutes to browse our website and learn more about vasectomy reversals.


What to Expect as You Recover from Your Vasectomy Reversal

Reading and relaxing

Although a vasectomy is intended to be a form of permanent birth control, thousands of men undergo vasectomy reversals every year because they change their minds about starting or growing a family. Before you undergo a vasectomy reversal, it’s a good idea to discuss your concerns and questions with the surgeon. The surgeon can explain exactly what’s involved with the procedure and what you can expect from the recovery process. In general, the recovery from a vasectomy reversal is rapid and the discomfort is minimal.

Alleviating Discomfort

Most men who have undergone a vasectomy reversal report experiencing only mild to moderate discomfort. The discomfort and swelling typically lasts about 24 to 48 hours. Usually, prescription pain relievers are not required. Instead, your surgeon is likely to recommend over-the-counter acetaminophen. You should also apply a cold pack to the scrotum area for about 20 minutes at a time on the first day. After applying the cold pack, leave it off for about 20 minutes before re-applying it.

Limiting Activities

Follow your vasectomy reversal surgeon’s post-operative instructions with regard to your activity level. Most men find that they can return to light activities and work within a week. Strenuous activities and work that requires heavy physical labor may need to be delayed for two to three weeks. It’s critical to avoid any sexual activity for three weeks after your vasectomy reversal. Additionally, your surgeon will advise you to wear a jockstrap for four weeks to support the area and facilitate healing.

Following Up with the Surgeon

Your surgeon will let you know when you should return to the office for a follow-up visit. In addition to a follow-up procedure the day after the surgery to remove the drains, you can expect to visit the office in about two to three months for a semen analysis. It can take between two to 15 months for sperm to reappear after the surgery.

If you have any questions about an upcoming procedure, contact the Center for Vasectomy Reversal at (941) 961-4581. Dr. Joshua Green remains dedicated to providing the utmost in patient care and education, and in helping each patient make an informed decision. Our office is conveniently located in Sarasota, FL.

What You Need to Know About Recovering from a Vasectomy Reversal

During a vasectomy reversal, the surgeon reconnects tubes to allow sperm to combine with the semen. Before you undergo the surgery, speak with the vasectomy reversal surgeon to discuss what you can expect afterward. Follow the surgeon’s post-op instructions carefully to ensure a speedy and healthy recovery. Here are some general guidelines for recovery:

Reducing Activity

Most men can return to light activities the same day of surgery; however, you should follow your surgeon’s instructions regarding your activity level. Refrain from vigorous activities for at least one to two weeks, and do not lift any heavy objects during this time. Assuming that you have a job that is not physically demanding, you can expect to return to work within a few days.

Wearing a Scrotal Support

Wear a scrotal support for at least a week. Your doctor may recommend that you wear it for several weeks. The supporter limits movement of the area, keeps the bandages in place, and applies pressure to reduce swelling. Wear the supporter all day and night, and take it off when bathing.

Applying an Ice Pack

For the first 48 hours after your vasectomy reversal, periodically apply an ice pack to the scrotal support. This helps suppress the swelling and alleviate discomfort. Your vasectomy reversal surgeon will tell you how long to keep the ice pack on the area and how often to use it. Follow these instructions carefully to avoid freezing the tissues.

Alleviating Discomfort

Discomfort after a vasectomy reversal generally isn’t severe. Still, you may experience some cramping. Your surgeon might prescribe a pain reliever or recommend an over-the-counter remedy to help you feel more comfortable.

Refraining from Sexual Activity

After a vasectomy reversal, it’s critical to avoid all sexual activity and ejaculation for two to four weeks. Your surgeon will let you know when you may resume sexual activities.
