Is a Vasectomy Reversal Really Effective
Study after study conforms the same fact: A microsurgical vasectomy reversal is far and away more cost effective than In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and or Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) for a couple to have children - and at about 1/3 of the price. This is especially true for women as they get older.
Vasectomy reversal microsurgeons that focus exclusively on providing the most technically advanced microsurgical vasectomy reversal procedure are able to achieve the highest levels of success. In other words, the more specialized your microsurgeon, then the vasectomy reversal success remains high whether a patient is 2 or 42 years out from a vasectomy.
There a few things a couple can actively do to improve their chances for a safe a successful vasectomy reversal. Following a healthy lifestyle by incorporating a healthful and nutritious diet can contribute to vasectomy reversal success. In addition to diet, regular exercise will also play a role in reversal success. An attentive microsurgeon should also discuss general health, cessation of smoking, any current medications, and sperm health prior to the original vasectomy and the number of years since the vasectomy.
Every responsible vasectomy reversal microsurgeon will use these factors to help you decide whether you should consider the vasectomy reversal as a legitimate option. However, there is a possibility that a vasectomy reversal may not work regardless of how suitable a candidate may appear. On the other hand, there are patients that do not appear to be "good candidates" and have chosen to proceed with a vasectomy reversal and now have fathered health children. Just as there no guarantees about conception before a vasectomy, there are no guarantees after the vasectomy reversal procedure.
