A vasectomy reversal is a microsurgical operation that re-establishes a connection of the vas deferens, the tube that carries sperm into the ejaculate and was previously cut during vasectomy. This is the only way for a couple to conceive naturally following a vasectomy. The procedure begins with the decision process, evaluating the options and alternatives, and becoming educated about the procedure.
Even if you do not plan to conceive right away, you might want to consider having the vasectomy reversal sooner rather than later. Although there are some cases where sperm returns to the ejaculate within two months after the reversal, it may take up to 12 months until the sperm count returns to an acceptable range.
Please note that many insurance carriers do not cover vasectomy reversal. You should contact your insurance carrier prior to scheduling the procedure to verify your benefits.
