The type of reconnection greatly determines the vasectomy reversal success rate. The exact type of reversal needed can only be determined at the time of the procedure. However, where a straight forward vasectomy reversal (VV) can be performed on both sides, regardless of the number of years since the vasectomy, sperm return in 99% of our cases, with a corresponding 65% or greater pregnancy rate. (Please note that of all couples trying to conceive, only 80-85% will achieve a natural conception at the end of one year).
When a bypass to the epididymis (EV) is required on both sides due to a secondary blockage or “epididymis blow-out,” we still achieve return of sperm in 85% of such cases, with a corresponding 50% or greater pregnancy rate.
With nearly one quarter of our cases being complicated redo cases of previously failed vasectomy reversals from other surgeons, our overall statistics are 94% for return of sperm and 60% natural pregnancy rate, with an average of 11.5 years from time of vasectomy to time of reversal. This is why you must choose the right vasectomy reversal doctor
Major Factors That Can Impact Vasectomy Reversal Success Rates:
The amount of time since your vasectomy, until time of reversal. After 10 years, the need for bilateral bypass to the epididymis increases greatly.
Men will produce sperm their entire lives, however age is a factor in that with age, sperm viability will generally decrease
This is determined by a semen analysis, which measures activity, shape, energy levels and density per milliliter of semen.
