Sperm Mapping on The Doctors

Fertility issues can be very troubling for couples desiring to have children, but there are medical solutions that can prove helpful. Male-factor infertility can be attributed to a lack of sperm in the ejaculate, which may seem like an impossible problem to overcome in order to achieve pregnancy.

However, as this video explains, there may be sperm in the testicles even if it is not present in the ejaculate. Sperm mapping can identify whether sperm is present in the testicles so that it can be retrieved through microsurgical procedures before in-vitro fertilization takes place.

For more information about sperm mapping and aspiration, schedule a consultation with the Center for Vasectomy Reversal. We can help you accomplish your family planning goals when you might think that hope has been lost for fertility treatment. Learn more on our website or call us at (941) 343-4020.


Is the MESA Procedure Right for You?

MESA (micro-epididymal sperm aspiration) is a procedure in which sperm is taken for in-vitro fertilization directly from the epididymal tubes through microsurgical techniques. The surgery may be used for several different reasons, as it is a safe and effective method to retrieve healthy sperm for optimal chances of achieving pregnancy through ISCI during in-vitro fertilization. Here are some signs that indicate this procedure may be right for helping you and your partner overcome infertility:

  • You are already planning to use in-vitro fertilization: If your partner is diagnosed with female-factor infertility, you may be planning an in-vitro procedure to improve the chances of pregnancy. Pairing the MESA procedure with in-vitro fertilization can further improve the likelihood of success, because it guarantees the purest sperm sample available. The procedure has a minimal chance of interfering with structures surrounding the epididymal tubes, and it prevents contamination of the sperm from other bodily fluids.
  • An obstruction is preventing adequate sperm count in ejaculation: Injury, infection, or other types of trauma can lead to an obstruction within the male anatomy that prevents sperm from traveling properly. MESA is a minimally invasive procedure that can eliminate this problem by acquiring a sperm sample that will be adequate for in-vitro fertilization procedures.
  • You want to improve the chances of pregnancy: Success rates with MESA are better than other fertility procedures used for male-factor infertility. The procedure is performed with incredible accuracy because the epididymal tubes can be seen directly through a microscope as the doctor performs the procedure, so the chances of successful fertilization are high.

What to Expect After Your Vasectomy Reversal

Latinamerican family

When you decide to undergo a vasectomy reversal in order to meet the changing goals of your family plans or eliminate symptoms from complications of the original vasectomy procedure, you might wonder what the recovery process will entail. There is some discomfort that can be expected during recovery, but it is generally minimal and lasts only about 24-48 hours. Some precautions will need to be taken to prevent tearing at the site of the repair, which are explained below.

  • Reduction in physical activity: You will need to rest for the first few days after the procedure and refrain from rigorous exercise for about one month. Light physical activity should not pose a problem, but always discuss it with your surgeon to be certain that it is safe. You should be able to return to work fairly soon after your procedure as long as your job does not require heavy lifting or other tasks involving physical labor.
  • Use of supportive clothing: A scrotal support will need to be worn for about one month after your procedure. It should be worn at all times except for when you are in the shower. This snug support will prevent the testicles from hanging down, so damage is less likely to occur at the surgical site.
  • Break in sexual activity: It is important that patients do not participate in sexual activity or ejaculate for at least three weeks following surgery. When sexual activity is resumed, more sperm will appear in the ejaculate over a period spanning about 12-15 months. Achieving pregnancy after vasectomy reversal can take up to two years, occurring with about a 50% success rate in this period of time.

How Semen Analysis Can Help In Overcoming Infertility

Couple talking with doctor in IVF clinic

Semen analysis is a specific procedure that measures the amount of semen produced as well as the number and quality of the sperm within the sample. If your male infertility specialist has recommended semen analysis, you may be wondering how this procedure can help you start a family.

Uses and Indications

Semen analysis procedures are generally the first tests performed in order to determine if a male partner is suffering from infertility. Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive a pregnancy after one full year of consistently trying. A semen analysis can be used to measure:

  • The volume of the sperm and how much semen is present in one ejaculation.
  • Liquefaction, or the time it takes for the semen to liquefy following ejaculation.
  • The number of sperm present per milliliter.
  • The morphology of sperm or the percentage of sperm that are normally shaped.
  • The motility, or movement, of the sperm.

A semen analysis can also help determine if male infertility is caused by a pH imbalance, the presence of white blood cells within the sperm, or an abnormal sperm fructose level. In some cases, a semen analysis may be performed to ensure the success of a vasectomy reversal procedure, ultimately determining if proper fertilization and conception is likely to be achieved following the procedure.

What to Expect

Your vasectomy reversal doctor may request that you avoid any sexual activity that results in ejaculation for at least two to five days prior to your examination to ensure that your sperm count is at its highest level. After obtaining the sample, your infertility specialist will analyze the findings and discuss the results.

Are You Ready for Fatherhood?

"Surprise! Guess who!"

A number of men undergo vasectomies during their late 20s and early 30s so that their personal or professional lives remain unchanged. However, a number of men regret the decision to undergo a vasectomy when they later realize that they do wish to father children. Fortunately, qualified surgeons offer vasectomy reversal procedures to help men regain their ability to start a family. Continue reading for an overview of steps you’ll need to take to prepare for fatherhood before contacting your vasectomy reversal doctor.

Caring for another Life

Becoming a father means putting the life of another person ahead of your own. This can often be a big transition for new fathers who are not used to putting their own needs aside in order to care for a newborn. While this doesn’t mean completely changing who you are as a person, fathering a child will require you to change your personal priorities so that your main focus becomes caring for your child.

Ensuring Financial Stability

Most individuals underestimate the costs of raising a child and how it will affect their professional lives. It is important to consider how fathering a child will affect your career, such as how much time you will need to take off immediately following your new son’s or daughter’s birth. You will also want to consider creating a budget beforehand to ensure you are financially able to support a child. Also, discuss with your partner her career goals and setting aside funds for the baby’s future; it’s never too early to plan for college.

Making Changes to Your Home

You will need to make certain adjustments to your home before bringing home a newborn. This includes installing child safety cabinet and drawer locks, removing hazardous items, and creating a nursery.

One helpful way to determine if undergoing a vasectomy reversal and starting a family is right for you is to consult your male infertility doctor. Call Dr. Joshua Green with the Center for Vasectomy Reversal at (941) 343-4020. You can also learn more about our vasovasostomy procedure by visiting us online.
