Tips In Increasing Your Chances With Vasectomy Reversal

in Procedure
About 500,000 men seek for vasectomy to avoid fathering a child. However, there are about 5% of these men taking their chances each year to become a natural father by submitting to vasectomy reversal.

Men, at some point in their lives, tend to change their hearts because of several contributing factors such as change of partner, change of financial status, recent divorce, death of a kid, and simply longing to have a child. Obtaining this dream is motivation enough for these men to resort to vasectomy reversal and regain back fertility. If you belong to this group, you should learn more about vasectomy reversal especially the technique and the cost associated with it.

Cost of Reversal

The estimated cost for vasectomy reversal is about $10,000 to $15,000 in the United States. However, this cost largely depends on the state or location, skill of the doctor, and the clinic used during the surgery. Expected add on cost would be the anesthesiologist professional fee and the anesthesia procedure. Choosing your doctor well requires a little research and bit of interview with past reversal vasectomy patients. The skill of the doctor as well as the experience matters greatly for this procedure because of the nature of the surgery. You must know that this surgery is conducted under a special high-powered microscope because the size of the vas deferens is like the size of the smallest spaghetti. Therefore, it is important that the doctor you choose for the vasectomy reversal is highly skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable on this procedure.

Choosing a Reversal Vasectomy Micro Surgeon

Reversal vasectomy regardless of how simple this may sound brings its own complications during the procedure. The doctor would be able to determine the type of reversal vasectomy technique only during the surgery. There is no accurate way of determining any development of blockage or scar tissue but through surgery itself. So, expect that during the surgery, your technique may have greater possibility to change from the simple one to the complicated one. This goes with your cost also. Each technique may present different cost levels. It is important to discuss everything with your surgeon before you proceed with the procedure.

Take note of the skill and experience of your micro surgeon. These important factors could affect the success rate of your surgery. Know about the doctor's accreditations as well as expertise. Ask questions and don't hesitate to ask for referrals from the micro surgeon's past patients related to reversal vasectomy so you will know more about the success rate of the procedure.

The Hospital or Clinic

The cost of the clinic or hospital also contributes to the total cost of the reversal vasectomy. Make sure that the clinic specializes in the reversal of vasectomy procedure. The facilities offered by the clinic or hospital greatly matters to the success rate of your microsurgery procedure. The knowledge and services offered by the hospital staff or clinic also matters greatly when assisting the micro surgeon during the procedure.

Most of the clinics offering other fertility options beside the reversal vasectomy would attempt to sell you the In Vitro Fertilization instead of the reversal vasectomy. This is because the IVF generates more profit than the reversal vasectomy. The rate of success for the IVF is lower than the reversal vasectomy.

Alternative Options for Fertility

As previously mentioned, the IVF is an option for fertilization but this has a lower rate of success. IVF is a very expensive, highly intrusive, and very painful process. This method is performed in different stages and has no guarantee for pregnancy.

The other option is to store your sperm in an Andrology lab for later use in case the vasectomy reversal fails. This would be your last chance to father a child naturally when the reversal procedure does not work.
