Vasectomy Reversal Success Rate

Most Common Vasectomy Reversal Question

Vasectomy Reversal Success Rate: In addition to concerns regarding  cost, the most common question the couple seeking information about a vasectomy reversal  is, ” What is the success rate?” This question is tricky and the answer is, “Well it depends.” When one inquires about success there are several factors to take into account and the particulars of each will vary from patient to patient. There are three primary factors that are important in the success of a vas reversal. In addition to these factors one must also remember that there are variables that pertain to the female. In other words, if everything has been done right and the male’s factors are maximized, there is still the possibility that there may be an issue of the female that will thwart pregnancy.

Three Factors Influence Vasectomy Reversal Success

The three factors that are important to vasectomy reversal success are: The number of years since the vasectomy was performed, the experience and skill of the surgeon, and the findings at the time of the procedure.  The details and an explanation of each of these factors will be discussed at the time of the vasectomy reversal phone consultation. A thorough discussion with pictures can be found in Dr. McHugh’s eBook about Vasectomy Reversals.

Vasectomy Reversal Success Rates:

Less than 3 years  Patency 97% Pregnancy 76%

3-8 years             Patency 88% Pregnancy 53%

9-14 years           Patency 79% Pregnancy 44%

Greater than 15 years Patency 71% Pregnancy 30%

Other Reversal Success Factors

So you see the answer to the question, ” What is the success rate?” is a complicated one. If the male after a vas reversal has sperm in his ejaculate, that does not necessarily mean that the couple will achieve pregnancy. The time it takes for sperm to regain its former motility varies as well. Then of course as a backdrop to all of these issues are the normal impediments to pregnancy that all couples face. This is why in the chart above you see the disparity between patent and pregnant.

Fantastic experience. The staff are friendly friendly and professional. Dr. McHugh walks you through the entire process step by step and his staff did a wonderful job of making sure I was informed about insurance and the procedure along the way. The operation itself was painless and quick. I can't recommend Dr. McHugh enough!

The procedure was quick and the anesthesia was perfectly executed. The best part of the procedure is that they let me pick one of my favorite bands to play over the speakers while drifting off.
