• Reasons that Vasectomy Reversals Are on the Rise

    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.

  • 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.
