Are Vasectomies Reversible?

Answer: Yes.

People have vasectomy reversals for multiple reasons such as the loss of a child or a spouse or a new marriage. Some couples have a simple change of heart. Reversals done within ten years of a vasectomy have high natural pregnancy rates. After ten years it is still possible to conceive a child “naturally” after a vasectomy reversal however the quality of the sperm declines making “normal conception” difficult. There are now multiple less expensive infertility techniques that can be utilized as long as viable sperm are present. After a successful reversal, it is common for sperm production to decline. I believe this is due in part to scarring at the site of the reversal procedure. I am recommending that as soon as sperm are present, we begin banking sperm as even “normal” conception can take some time.

Expectations for Getting Pregnant After Vasectomy Reversal

The success rates of a vasectomy reversal can vary depending on the length of time since the initial vasectomy procedure. According to a study conducted by Belker et al., patients who undergo a vasectomy reversal within 3 years of their initial vasectomy have a patency rate of 97% and a pregnancy rate of 76%. These are relatively high success rates, indicating that the chances of achieving a successful reversal and subsequent pregnancy are quite favorable in the earlier stages after the vasectomy.

However, as time passes since the initial vasectomy, the success rates tend to decrease. For example, patients who undergo a reversal between 9-14 years after their vasectomy have a patency rate of 79% and a pregnancy rate of 44%. Similarly, those who wait more than 15 years before attempting a reversal have lower success rates, with a patency rate of 71% and a pregnancy rate of 30%. These findings highlight the importance of timing when considering a vasectomy reversal and suggest that earlier reversals may offer better outcomes in terms of patency and pregnancy rates.

I believe the pregnancy rates will improve with the banking of sperm.
