Vasectomy Reversal? A patient journey.

This a drawing done for me by a urological professor in Italy. I had asked him to draw his interpretation of pregnancy after a reversal.
  • It all starts with the decision to begin the journey that is a vasectomy reversal.
  • The procedure is not coveredĀ  by insurance.
  • Success can’t be guaranteed.
  • Once the procedure is performed, it takes the testicles about three months to begin producing sperm again.
  • If pregnancy occurs, it is usually six to eighteen months after the procedure.
  • A lot of things have to come in to place and in many ways a pregnancy is “miracle.”

Many times I have said to the vasectomy reversal couple that you have to begin with the procedure to start the clock. Then live your life… as this is a “patient journey.”

What is tenderness on one side or the other after a vasectomy?

This is a common question and maybe more common for me than other urologists. Why?

I make one mid-line opening using the no scalpel instrument. This is done at the peno-scrotal junction (upper aspect of the scrotum in the middle.) Through this opening the right side vas deferens is brought to the surface and the vasectomy is performed. This vas then returns to the right. Same thing is done on the left. (Many urologists make two openings, one on each side.)

What can be confusing to the patient is that days or weeks later he notes the mid-opening that is healed, but he feels a small knot on the left or right. What is going on? Something must be wrong.

The knot is where the body has begun the healing process. This varies from left to right, so that one patient may feel something on the right another the left. Because the opening is in the middle the assumption is that the swelling should be in the middle.

Now you know why it is left or right. The middle is where we access the left and right vas deferens but then it returns to its normal location and the healing process then begins.

If it is a small area and minimal discomfort, then this is the normal healing process and no need to call your doctor.

We offer vasectomy conscious sedation, fair all inclusive pricing for self pay patients and accept most all insurances. Call us when you’re ready to consider a vasectomy. We’ve done thousands.

Microscopic vasectomy reversal-Top three FAQs.

Is a reversal like having had a vasectomy? No, a vasectomy takes about 15 minutes and a reversal usually around two hours.

If I was very fertile before my vasectomy, will I have better results with a reversal? No, however it won’t hurt. Often times the success rates are related to the interval between the vasectomy and the reversal. I.e.- a vasectomy done two years ago has better odds than one done five years ago. (As a rule-sometimes other factors can play a role such as the experience of the surgeon and having a sperm granuloma.)

Is it covered by insurance? No, most reversal urologists will off a price package that will cover everything from the facility, staff, supplies, anesthesia and surgeon fees. At Northeast Georgia Urological Associates, we own the surgery center and this dramatically allows our pricing to be more competitive than most. (The facility fee such as having to pay a hospital for surgery time, is usually the biggest portion of the cost.)
