  • Deciding Whether Vasectomy Reversal is Right for You

    There was a time when it made sense for you to get a vasectomy, but things have changed and now you’re thinking about reversing the procedure. But how do you know if a vasectomy reversal is the right decision? The first step is to consider your needs. Regardless of your situation—whether you’re exiting an old relationship, entering a new one, or in a better position to have children—if you’ve changed your mind about your vasectomy it’s time to talk to a vasectomy reversal surgeon in Sarasota about your options. In the meantime, here are some things to think about that will help you feel more comfortable about the decision you make.

    Consider the Risks

    As with any surgical procedure, you should first consider the risks. Thankfully, complications resulting from a vasectomy reversal are uncommon. Infection is arguably the most serious risk, but Dr. Green takes every precaution before, during, and after the procedure to minimize the risk.

    Consider the Success Rates

    You should also consider the chances of success. Although it’s difficult for any surgeon to provide you with an estimate of success until a preliminary inspection or consultation has been performed, success rates for vasectomy reversal procedures are generally high. If you are seeking vasectomy reversal less than five years after the initial procedure was performed, there is better than a 95% chance of sperm in the ejaculate. Rates go down slightly the longer its been, but even vasectomies that were performed over 10 years ago have between an 80-90% success rate.

    Consider the Alternatives

    Finally, you should consider all of the alternatives available to you. For example, te MESA procedure can remove sperm from the epididymis, which can then be used for in vitro fertilization (IVF). However, vasectomy reversal offers the most natural and cost effective option for achieving pregnancy.
