Vasectomy reversals are often successful for men who change their minds about parenthood. The sooner the reversal is performed after the original vasectomy, the greater the chance of success will be. However, it’s important to remember that your sperm count and quality are both affected by your age. Since you’ll naturally be older after your vasectomy reversal, you may have a lower sperm count and poorer quality of sperm.
The reversal procedure itself shouldn’t affect the quality of sperm. When sperm count and motility are affected by a vasectomy or reversal, it’s usually due to the buildup of scar tissue. At periodic intervals after your reversal, you’ll return to the clinic to provide a semen sample for analysis. This allows you and your doctor to keep track of your sperm count and quality to maximize your chances of becoming a father.
