How Common Are Vasectomy Reversals?

You might think that an elective surgery such as a vasectomy reversal might not be all that common. But in fact, thousands of men undergo this particular procedure every year. According to The Baltimore Sun , vasectomy surgeons perform about half a million vasectomies each year in the U.S. Each year, about 50,000 American men decide to undergo a vasectomy reversal. 

Happy family portrait

The reasons for choosing a vasectomy reversal are just as varied and complex as the reasons for undergoing a vasectomy. Each man’s experience is unique, yet many men consult a vasectomy reversal surgeon because of changes in life circumstances. The loss of a spouse or divorce, and a subsequent remarriage can make a man rethink his decision not to have children. Sometimes, the tragic loss of a child can lead a couple to consider having more children. On average, men who undergo the reversal procedure decide to do so within six to 12 years following the original surgery.
