Trying to Conceive After a Vasectomy Reversal: How Long Should You Wait?

Like any fertility treatment, vasectomy reversal involves a period of recovery and rest. When you have a vasectomy reversal, the general guideline is to wait three weeks before participating in sexual activity. If you try to conceive earlier in your recovery, you may run the risk of tearing open your stitches.

It is important to remember that conception could still take several months or even a year following the reversal procedure. Even the healthiest couples may not conceive right away when fertility issues are not present, so patience is important in your attempts to have children. You will also want to promote open communication with your partner so that you are comfortable expressing when sexual activity is uncomfortable or painful.
