Vasovasostomy: Reversal of vasectomy is seldom covered by insurance. It has variable success rates depending on length of time since vasectomy, technique of vasectomy and most importantly the experience of the urologist with the procedure. The best success rate (as measured by successful conception) under ideal circumstances is generally 50%. ...Read more
Here are some...: Recanalization of the vas is suspected by reappearance of sperms in semen after being free of sperms as shown in post-vasectomy semen exam, or by unexpected pregnancy after declared to be sperm-free, & occurs usually within 6 months after vasectomy if happened. Post-vasectomy semen exam is mandatory to declare infertility, but less than 45% of men will follow through this advice until unexpected.. ...Read more

Vasectomy in 1996.
Depends on severity: Usually, we recommend simple non-steroidal anti-inflammatory therapies like Ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) to be taken on an as-needed basis. If the pain is constant, make an appointment with the urologist or physician who performed the procedure. They may order an ultrasound to evaluate the anatomy. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Time since vasectomy: The time since vasectomy is critical. Both tubal patency (open) and fertility decrease with time since the vasectomy. If you have had 10 yrs since vas then success is likely less than 30%. Also remember that the female partner age is also important, perhaps more so. If there is no or poor quality sperm, then ivf/icsi is possible. We virtually always get sperm with aspiration for icsi. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very good: In the hands of an experienced Urologist who does micro surgery, there is about 90 % plus chance of sperm return to semen after a vas reversal. Influencing factors can be: time since vasectomy, and age of patient. Even with sperm return, female factors have to be considered in trying to achieve a pregnancy ...Read more
Yes: Yes. Fertility can be obtained after a tubal ligation either through surgical repair (if amenable to reversal) or through ivf (tubal bypass). Tubal reversal success will depend on health of the tubes as well as chances to conceive overall. Ivf does not require tubes and therefore success will depend on the age of the female as well as presence of other infertility factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Semen analysis: All male fertility evaluation starts with a semen analysis, and usually ends there. Men needing further evaluation may include consultation with a urologist, scrotal ultrasound, testicular biopsy, and the list goes on. For costs you need to inquire locally because they vary; in our area semen analysis is usually in the $100-$200 range. ...Read more
Excellent: Excellent in the right hands. The expertise of the surgeon is a very important determinant of the ultimate success. Time out from the vasectomy is also important but there is no strict cut-off - the "10 year mark" is a fallacy - just not true. So, find a Urological Surgeon like my self who specializes in Vasectomy Reversal (microsurgical). My practice at Boston Medical Center keeps costs low. ...Read more
May be & mat not...: Of course, that depends on the specific policy of a health insurance; so, check yours out. Usually, health insurance would not cover vasectomy reversal; that is why I told my patients to consider vasectomy as a permanent procedures with a high cost to reverse with a price tag up to 10-20 thousands US dollars depending where and who the procedure is done. ...Read more
It's a time issue: The most critical factors in vasectomy reversal success include length of time since the vasectomy as well as the specific location along the vas where the procedure was performed. This latter item may not be determined until the surgeon is doing the reversal. Success rates tend to decline after 9 to 10 years, however successful reversals have certainly occurred beyond that time as well. ...Read more
What is a better medical choice with tubal ligation to obtain a pregnancy; IVF or tubal reversal?
Depends: There are a number of factors in making that decision including what type of tubal ligation you had, how many years ago it occurred, and what your fertility is like now according to labs that would show how your ovaries function. If you are making that decision, you should have a consultation with a reproductive endocrinologist to see if he/she thinks you are a good candidate for either. ...Read more
