In brief: Depends

You should sit down with a fertility specialist to discuss that.
That may be a reasonable option but if you truly want a boy it may not be the best option. Both of you should have a complete evaluation before making any decisions on how to get pregnant.

In brief: That specific ?

If he wants just a boy, and your ovaries are healthy, contact a fertility center. Reversals don't always work, and if you did get pregnant, it might get stuck in the tube (not survive) and might be a girl.
You could have your eggs harvested, have his sperm fertilize some eggs, and do gender selection and place the boy in your womb to start the pregnancy. Expensive but available.
