We currently recommend that couples who desire this alternative to vasectomy reversal or for those who have non-correctable duct obstruction, that the man have his sperm retrieval and freezing before the wife starts her IVF cycle. In this way, both partners do not need to have medical procedures performed on the same day, and the entire situation becomes less stressful while maintaining high success rates.
However, since sperm retrieval combined with IVF-ICSI costs much more than vasectomy reversal on a cost-per-pregnancy basis, we encourage our clients to consider vasectomy reversal with sperm freezing at the time of reversal, as your most cost-effective option. As of February 1, 2004 our package price for vasectomy reversal is $8,300 (this includes surgeon’s fee, hospital and anesthesia fees). Sperm freezing adds $500 to this cost. Please note that there is an additional $400 charge for redo reversals and call ahead to verify current vasectomy costs.
