A Second Chance to Be a Father: Vasectomy Reversals

Vasectomies are commonly considered a permanent form of birth control, and the thought of needing a vasectomy reversal is probably the last thing that comes to mind. Reversals are expensive and complicated surgical procedures, and success is not guaranteed. But many doctors report very high success rates from vasectomy reversals. For many years doctors thought that the farther out you are from the vasectomy, the lower your chances for success. And specialists in the procedure reject the notion -- widely held even in the medical community -- that the procedure is rarely successful in men who had their vasectomy more than 10 years earlier. In fact, it is wrong to impose an arbitrary time limit on when a reversal will work or when it will not. With the right vasectomy reversal microsurgeon specialist, you can expect a minimum of 90% and as high as 96% success rate, whether you are 2 or 42 years out from your vasectomy.
