Vasectomy Reversal after 10 Years
Although vasectomy is considered a permanent method of birth control, if you have had a vasectomy in the past you may have reasons to consider a reversal of this procedure. There are many good reasons to decide to reverse a vasectomy, including remarriage, or the desire to have another child after the loss of a child. If you have had a vasectomy and circumstances of your life are causing reconsideration of that decision, don’t despair – there are options available to restore fertility. Dr. Larish, the best vasectomy reversal doctor in New York City, can discuss the many options for reversal of your vasectomy to restore your fertility.
When you have a vasectomy, the sperm duct is cut, preventing fertility. A sperm duct, known as the vas deferens, is located in each side of your scrotum, and can be reconnected. There are other surgical options available, including the connection of the sperm duct to the epididymis, a small testicular organ where sperm mature. There are a number of procedures available to restore fertility after a vasectomy, and an experienced urologist, like Dr. Larish, the best vasectomy reversal doctor in NYC, can guide you to the best option for your situation.
Vasectomy reversal is usually performed in an outpatient clinic, and is performed under general anesthesia, depending upon the surgeon and patient preference. Typically, a small opening on each side of the scrotum will allow the urologist to remove the scarred portions of the vas deferens that result from a vasectomy. A fluid sample will be obtained by the urologist to ensure that sperm is present, and that there is no blockage between testicle and sperm duct, or in the epididymis. If sperm is present, the ends of the cut vas deferens can be re-connected to allow the sperm passage, and this procedure, called vasectomy, restores fertility. If there is no sperm in the fluid, other approaches to restoration of fertility by vasectomy reversal are utilized.
