• A Look at Semen Analysis Following Vasectomy Reversal

    A vasectomy reversal procedure is considered an effective option for restoring male fertility to those who have previously undergone permanent male sterilization. However, it does take a little while to conceive a child following the procedure because the sperm will need some time to be present within the semen again. This is why men are advised to undergo semen analysis periodically following the vasectomy reversal.

    Typically, vasectomy reversal surgeons recommend undergoing semen analysis about two months following the procedure. After the patient provides a semen sample, the lab will test it for volume, sperm count, and motility. Motility refers to the ability of sperm to move properly, which is necessary for egg fertilization. Men are generally considered fertile and able to have children when sperm count reaches a minimum of 20 million and the sperm are properly motile. Men with a lower sperm count may still be able to father a child; however, they may have more trouble doing so.

    Those who are struggling with male infertility are invited to contact the Center for Vasectomy Reversal to discuss whether this procedure might be right for them. Call us today at (941) 343-4020 with any questions you may have.
