Many patients ask about the chance of a vasectomy reversal being successful if the vasectomy was performed many years ago. Good question!

In fact, frequently couples are discouraged from even considering a vasectomy reversal strictly based on the time from vasectomy.  Is this the right thing to tell couples?

I was curious about this, so together with a colleague we looked at our outcomes and discovered that vasectomy reversal remain a good options for couples seeking natural fertility even after many years.

Check out what we discovered!

Hi,
for those wondering about success after a long time. I had a reversal done after 10 years with success! We have 2 boys as a result.
