In brief: 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.

In brief: 5-50%

Success after vasectomy reversal depends on the time since the original vasectomy and the female partner's age.
In a young couple reversing less than 15 years after vasectomy, cumulative conception rates of up to 50% are possible. Bear in mind that fecundity, the chance of conception in the next month, is much lower.
