Vasectomy is a procedure in which a male’s vas deferens tube is sealed, cut or tied to prevent the passage of sperms to the urethra. This is a permanent contraceptive technique to avoid fertilization of egg through sexual intercourse. The reversal of this method is known as reverse vasectomy. In this procedure, the ligated vas deferens tube is re-connected. It is an expensive and complicated procedure with not a great success rate. After going through this, the fertility of a male is restored and he is able to get his partner pregnant. Reverse vasectomy can be performed at any time even after a gap of 10-15 years as the sperms are continuously been produced and are viable. The pregnancy rates after this can be as low as 30% to as high as 90% depending upon the procedure used. Only 6% of all the men gone through vasectomy go for a reversal technique.
The recovery time after a reversal vasectomy varies from person to person. It usually takes 5 days to 2 weeks for the recovery. In the first few hours, the patient is woozy due to anesthesia. There is nausea, muscle pain, swelling, fatigue, and sore throat. After the effects of anesthesia fade away the day after surgery, pain is elevated. The recovery process is completed in 2 weeks.
The success rate is variable and depends upon the individual case. Sperms come into the semen after 4 to 6 months of surgery. Your doctor regularly checks your sperm count till it returns to normal. In vasovasostomy, 6 to 12 months are required to restore the normal sperm count in the semen. While in the case of vasoepididymostomy, it might take longer. Once the sperms come back to the semen, chances to conceive can increase with the passage of time. the success rate also depends upon a number of other factors including any other illness or disease, age of female partner and the quality and quantity of sperms present in the semen.
