How Your Lifestyle Affects Your Sperm Count

If you want a family, a low sperm count can affect your chances. A sperm count above 20 million per milliliter is considered normal.

Many men don’t know that a number of lifestyle factors can have an effect on fertility. This video explains that factors such as drinking alcohol, smoking, using recreational drugs, and feeling stressed can all play roles in male infertility. These factors can have a cumulative effect over time, so the longer you engage in unhealthy behaviors, the more it can affect your fertility.

If you have questions about your fertility and lifestyle, the doctors at the Center For Vasectomy Reversal have the answers you need. Call us today at (941) 225-2317 to learn about vasectomy reversal and male fertility. You’ll find more information by clicking through our website

Helping Your Partner Recover from His Vasectomy Reversal

Although vasectomy reversal surgery requires relatively little downtime, some care is needed following the procedure. Your surgeon will explain what to expect following your partner’s vasectomy reversal. Providing a helping hand during the healing process will ensure a smooth and rapid recovery.

Assist with Aftercare
Aftercare is often minimal, but still important following a vasectomy reversal. You can help your partner by encouraging him to rest and helping to apply ice packs to minimize swelling after the surgery. If pain medication is necessary, keep it on hand and available to your partner. Supportive underwear or an athletic support should be worn for a month following a vasectomy reversal, so ensure that these items are purchased beforehand.

Discuss Conception and Birth Control
Once the vasectomy reversal is complete and success has been confirmed, your partner is once again fertile. Make sure both of you agree if you believe you are ready to conceive immediately. Talk about ways you can increase your chances of pregnancy by reducing stress and improving your health. If you are not ready to begin your family immediately, talk about your preferred methods of birth control. In some cases, a visit to a gynecologist may be required, so remember to schedule accordingly.

Take Your Time
Even after post-surgery healing is complete, you and your partner may not be ready to resume sexual intercourse immediately. It’s best to maintain an open line of communication between you and your partner during this time. The success of your partner’s vasectomy reversal will not fade, so remember that you can take as long as you both need before resuming intimacy without feeling pressured.

You and your partner can learn more about vasectomy reversal and recovery following surgery by calling the Center For Vasectomy Reversal at (941) 225-2317. Dr. Joshua Green is here to help you through the surgery and recovery process so you can enjoy the family you want.

Improving Your Sperm Mobility after a Vasectomy Reversal

1st place!

During your vasectomy reversal, your surgeon reconnects the vas deferens, or the tubes that transport sperm. Despite the anatomical restoration, some men experience reduced sperm motility. If your doctor tells you that you have poor sperm motility, use the following tips to give your fertility a boost.

Get Tested Regularly

You might be tempted to have your sperm tested immediately after a vasectomy reversal. However, bear in mind that it can take up to 15 months to see the full results of the procedure. Have your sperm tested regularly to evaluate the sperm count, motility, and quality.

Eat a Healthy Diet               

Following a heart-healthy diet, such as the Mediterranean meal plan, can improve your fertility. These diets are low in saturated fats and rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seafood, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Try to reduce the amount of red meat and processed foods you eat. According to The Telegraph, one study found that following a Mediterranean-style diet improved sperm motility by 11 percent.

Try Supplements

Talk to your doctor about using supplements to fill in any nutritional gaps in your diet plan. You might consider taking L-carnitine supplements, for example. Although more research is needed, it has been suggested that L-carnitine can improve sperm motility.

Make Lifestyle Modifications

Other healthy lifestyle changes can improve your overall fertility, including your sperm motility. For example, if you smoke, now is a good time to quit, as tobacco use greatly inhibits fertility. Talk to your doctor about smoking cessation strategies and local resources to help you quit. Also, limit or avoid alcohol consumption and avoid illicit or recreational drugs.

Questions to Ask Before Deciding to Become a Dad

Fatherhood is great!

Many men who have a vasectomy later change their minds and wish to start families. If you’re one of them, you have the option to pursue a vasectomy reversal. Before you schedule your vasectomy reversal, however, ask yourself the following crucial questions to determine if you’re ready to become a father:

Why Do You Want Children?

Carefully consider your reasons for wanting to start a family. Poor reasons to become a father include fulfilling someone else’s expectations of a traditional family or to conform to societal norms. Some men consider having a vasectomy reversal because they believe having children will solve relationship problems. On the other hand, a good reason to become a father is to experience the pure joy of parenthood and the close familial bond of parent and child.

Does Your Partner Have the Same Mindset?

Successfully raising children depends on both partners sharing the same mindset. Both you and your partner should explore your mutual reasons for wanting to be parents. If one partner wishes to have children and the other doesn’t, then becoming a parent can greatly strain the relationship.

Is Your Relationship Strong?

Studies have shown that having a stable marriage is a precursor to having a strong, stable family. If you and your partner maintain open communication and are committed to working through difficulties together, then you are better equipped to deal with the challenges of parenthood.

Are You Financially Prepared?

Before you undergo a vasectomy reversal, consider whether you and your partner are financially prepared to raise a child. Diapers and baby food are just a fraction of what children need. Consider the cost of education, healthcare, and other vital aspects of your child’s life.

If you and your partner are ready to raise a child, consider having a vasectomy reversal. Discuss whether you’re a good candidate for a vasectomy reversal at your consultation with the Center For Vasectomy Reversal. We invite you to call us at (941) 225-2317 or visit us on the Web to learn more.

How Long Does it Take to Get Pregnant after a Vasectomy Reversal?

Vasectomy reversals have helped many couples achieve their dream of beginning or growing their families. Sometimes, however, it can take a little while for your partner to become pregnant after you have a vasectomy reversal. Although vasectomy reversals have a high success rate (80 to 90 percent of men have functional sperm production afterward), it takes an average of one to two years before couples achieve pregnancy. Men who wait for a long time before having a vasectomy reversed may need to wait longer to see a positive pregnancy test.

If it’s been a year or two since your vasectomy reversal and your partner isn’t yet pregnant, there could be other issues involved. Both of you may need to undergo fertility testing to determine if there are other medical conditions affecting your sperm or her eggs.

The highly skilled vasectomy reversal doctor at the Center For Vasectomy Reversal can help you and your partner grow your family. Please call us today at (941) 225-2317 to schedule your consultation.

Reasons that Vasectomy Reversals Are on the Rise

Portrait of mid-aged man

Though some consider a vasectomy to be a permanent method of birth control, it is possible to get a vasectomy reversal. There has been an upward trend in recent years of men who regret their earlier decision to go through with a vasectomy. Opting for a vasectomy reversal is a big decision, but the reasons in favor of it are compelling.

Common Misconception

Many men do not fully grasp the implications of a vasectomy when they undergo the initial surgery. Some men have the misconception that a vasectomy can be easily remedied at a later date. In a way, they’re right—however, a vasectomy reversal is perhaps not quite as simple as these men might imagine.

Insurance Coverage

While insurance carriers often cover the cost of a vasectomy, many of them did not reimburse patients for vasectomy reversals until recently. One of the driving factors behind the increasing popularity of reversals is the greater willingness of insurance companies to cover the cost.

Advances in Technology

More men are choosing vasectomy reversals thanks to advances in technology that have contributed to a rising success rate. Innovative magnification techniques have helped more than 90 percent of men who undergo vasectomy reversals to begin producing sperm again.

Change of Heart or Circumstance

Most men decide to get a vasectomy because they are done having children or do not wish to have children at all. A vasectomy reversal can be the ideal solution if a man and his spouse experience a change of heart. For instance, a man may pursue the surgery if he is divorced and wishes to start a family with his new partner.

Regardless of your reasons for seeking a vasectomy reversal, the professionals at Center For Vasectomy Reversal are ready to help. Schedule a consultation with the Center For Vasectomy Reversal to discuss the procedure. You can reach us at (941) 225-2317 with any questions you might have.

Talking to Your Partner about Getting Your Vasectomy Reversed

As a couple, you and your loved one likely enjoy shared experiences and consult each other about routine matters. Considerate collaboration is a vital ingredient of any successful relationship—especially when it comes to one of the most important decisions the two of you will make together: deciding to have a child.

When both of you have agreed that you want to have children, you or your partner may need a vasectomy reversal. If you or your partner has previously undergone a vasectomy, a vasectomy reversal can provide you with the opportunity to grow your family. The two of you should meet with a doctor together to learn more about the procedure. Make sure that both or you are fully informed about the procedure itself, the recovery process, and the success rates.

The experienced team at the Center For Vasectomy Reversal will walk you through each step of the process and answer any questions you might have. Call our practice today at (941) 225-2317 to schedule your consultation for a vasectomy reversal.

Do Men Have a Biological Clock?

The symptoms of menopause are well known—but did you know that men also undergo a form of menopause? It’s called andropause, and it refers to the natural decline in hormones as a man ages. Unlike menopause, which develops rapidly in a woman, andropause can begin when a man is in his 40’s or 50’s, and develops gradually from there. Andropause is associated with male infertility and lower testosterone.

Watch this video to learn more about andropause and its implications for male infertility. Dr. Harry Fisch, an expert on the subject, also explains the two key components of healthy aging for men.

If you have had a vasectomy, but have recently decided that you wish to have children, there is hope. Call the Center For Vasectomy Reversal at (941) 225-2317 to find out if a vasectomy reversal is right for you.
