Fertility rates in men who have had a vasectomy reversal?

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.
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.

What are the success rates for vasectomy reversal?

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...

It depends... It depends if ; why it’s low. In the healing phase(approx 6mos) counts can be low, sometimes because the channel that was reconnected is not fully open. Some drs have patients wait 6mos to see what the sperm count looks like at that time while others put patients on anti-inflammatory meds. Sperm counts can also be low due to a production problem. A physical exam/hormone profile can dertermine this. Read more...
Not likely possible. In your question, you did not indicate what the sperm count is that you are interested in increasing. After a vasectomy reversal, the overall sperm count and quality of the sperm (motility, morphology) are variable, but are usually less amenable to any type of treatment than a low sperm count that occurs without vasectomy and reversal.
