Nowadays, the proportion of the couple’s divorcement significantly going high, men who used to be done for the vasectomy is now changing their mind and seeking for the vasectomy reversal procedure. Some survey in the US recently reported that 2% – 6% of vasectomized men they need to do the reversal procedure.
Let’s talk about the vasectomy procedure first! The day-care operational for male permanent contraception. This sort of procedure will start with the infusion of the pain killer direct to scrotal skin. After that the surgeon will make 1-cm for the incision then catch both Vas deferens then cut, tie and cauterize them as in the picture shown up. Some surgeons are performing the called “No-scalpel Vasectomy” which is no incision required. This special technique has pros on the less pain and less operational times but we still questions related to the effectiveness on the results. Literally, once I discuss with the patients related to the “Contraception procedure”, they have anticipated 100% success rate ever (I have reviewed the latest literature about those questions would had launched since 2014 – but it remains questionable).
So back to the vasectomy reversal procedure! It is not just a minor operation like the vasectomy one. To do this we required the patients access procedure under the general anesthesia several hours in the operational duration, when the job done the patients need to stay overnight in the hospital.
After the operation, the patients must strictly follow the doctor’s advices as following:
Taking shower or bathing will be allowed after 48 hours passed by
All-time wear scrotal support (except in taking shower only) do this for 6 weeks
Scrotal support still need to wear while you performing the heavy activities or sports, unless you’re getting know the sing of pregnancy confirmed
Desk works can be resumed in 3 days
Avoid any kind of sports for 3 weeks
No ejaculation for 3 weeks
Semen analysis shall repeat as scheduled the 1st , 3rd and 6th of the month after the operation
With the microscopic surgery and to obtain the superior outcome so it might needs the well-trained Urologist or Andrologist to perform this operation. Once the reversal procedure has done, 70% – 95% of the patients will getting sperms as well as their ejaculated fluid ,and finally getting pregnancy naturally from 30% – 75% of the couple.
Anyway, there still a magic number on this operation! Well! Will you make the decision to undergo the reversal procedure just because for 5 years vasectomy and plan to get young wife to become more fertility? Is it better when you get divorced too early and finding another younger wife at the same time in order to gain more beneficial from that? Just little joke.
