Following are answers to several questions about vasectomy reversal surgery.
We don't plan on trying to conceive right away. When would be the best time for me to have a vasectomy reversal?
Even if you plan to postpone attempts to conceive, it’s a good idea to move ahead with scheduling it. Remember that sperm must return to the ejaculate. This can happen as quickly as as three weeks after surgery, but it can take up to 12 months to receive a stable semen analysis result. The average time interval from a vasectomy reversal until pregnancy is 12 months, and it takes 24 months postoperatively until the highest percentage of pregnancies is achieved.
Also, having a vasectomy reversal as soon as a man has committed to having more children translates to a shorter timeframe between when the man had his vasectomy and when the man schedules the vasectomy reversal. This can increase the likelihood of a successful outcome.
