Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy reversals are not always successful and depend on when the vasectomy was performed. The procedure can cause a man to develop other problems such as blockages, immunological problems and an infertility condition called azoospermia.

Symptoms

None.

Cause

Some men who have had vasectomies change their minds and want the condition reversed.

Treatment

Two treatment options are available to men: vasovasostomy or vasoepididymostomy. Both of these are outpatient procedures that either suture the patient's vas deferens back together or stitch the vas deferens directly onto the epididymis.

It is not uncommon for men to develop anti-sperm antibodies in the years after vasectomy. If a man has had a vasectomy for more than five years, the success of a surgery to reverse the vasectomy declines as time passes.
