Vasovasostomy / Vasectomy Reversal

Vasovasostomy, or vasectomy reversal, is possible and is becoming increasingly popular among modern couples

It is important for the couple to come to a common consensus regarding vasectomy and realize that it should not be thought of as a reversible procedure. Nevertheless, with increasing divorce and remarriage rates, vasectomy reversal (referred to as Vasovasostomy) is becoming increasingly popular. In cases where the marriage is stable, clearly the desire for more children or the loss of a child is what prompts the man to present for vasectomy reversal, which is technically very difficult and associated with poor success rates. It has been projected that 2-6% of vasectomised men would seek reversal, sometime later in life.

Success of a vasectomy reversal depends on factors such as:

a) The length of time elapsed since vasectomy procedure

b) The technique used for vasectomy

Sometimes, even in the best hands, fertility may not be restored. The general success can be predicted to be between 20 to 30%.

Having had a traditional bi-lateral vasectomy myself over 29 years ago, I can tell you that it is a very easily done procedure with minimal pain. I had my surgery done in very early afternoon and was working already that evening due to the fact that I had to as I was a dairy farmer and had cows to be milked. Other than the milking and routine chores, I did take it easy for several days and tried to ice my scrotum area whenever possible. I had a very quick recovery, went for sperm check in two months and was given the "all clear" for safe sex. Best decision my wife and I did during our entire marriage. Forgot to mention that we had two children and our family was complete before having the vasectomy. I am writing this for educational purposes hoping that it will encourage men contemplating vasectomy to go ahead with it.

Is this article real? The author must be in third or fourth grade. There are grammar errors all over the place and that is what makes me deem this article completely unprofessional. Although the information was helpful, the author should see to it that he/she take a grammar class prior to wtiting another medicle article.
