Vasectomy Reversal

For more than 50 years, the vasectomy has become the most commonly used birth control method. Of course, when a man decides to have a vasectomy he intends it to be a permanent solution. However, there are many reasons why an increasing number of men want to have their vasectomies reversed.

The internationally recognised rate of success of vasectomy reversal is 80%.

Benefits of the operation

This operation reverses the vasectomy and means that couples do not have to go through hormone treatment or use artificial insemination.

Medical-technical description

Vasectomy reversal is an out-patient procedure. No hospital stay is involved and it is performed under local anaesthetic with light sedation to prevent nervousness in the theatre.

About the operation

An incision measuring approximately 2 cm is made in the mid-scrotal area. A 10x microscope is used to identify the vas deferens that has been cut and the ends are joined together.

Before the operation

  • A full study of your medical history to determine the details of the surgery.
  • To guarantee optimal hygiene during surgery, the night before you should shave your testicles (scrotum) and the surrounding groin area.
  • On the day of your surgery you should shower and wash the area with normal soap.
  • You must not eat or drink for five to six hours before your treatment.
  • Do not wear underwear or removable dentures. You must remove all metal objects (such as rings, bracelets, earrings, body piercings, etc).

Post-operative care

  • In most cases, you will only notice some mild discomfort in the site of the operation. However, you will be given antibiotics and analgesics.
  • Although you will be given local anaesthesia, you should ask someone to come with you for the surgery.
  • You should not drive after surgery, because you may feel discomfort in the testicles, which may interfere with your ability to concentrate.
  • You must rest for 48 hours after the operation. This means avoiding making any strenuous efforts, long walks, sport and similar activities.
  • You must clean your wound every day and cover it with antiseptic and a sterile dressing for 5 days.
  • The sutures will be reabsorbed and so there is no need to remove them.
  • Two months after the operation you should have your sperm tested to see how successful the surgery has been.
