There are two key questions that people ask themselves when realising that a vasectomy is not right for them (for whatever reason):
1. Can a vasectomy be reversed?
2. How do you reverse a vasectomy?
Well, a vasectomy can be reversed and the question of “How to reverse a vasectomy” is answered here. Here at the Vasectomy Reversal Centre, we help Dads become Dads again.
Can You Reverse A Vasectomy Naturally – Possible?
Around the middle of the 20th century, it was noted that the failure rate of vasectomy was too high. Today, there is a population of people who were all conceived as a consequence of failed vasectomy. It was found that using the old method of vasectomy, a cut was just made in the vas deferens on both sides. What wasn’t known is that there was (and still is) a built-in capacity to self-heal meaning that the two ends of the vas deferens re-found themselves, joined together and enabled the passage of sperm. So for some men, their vasectomy did reverse itself naturally but without them knowing.
The technique was then changed around 50 years ago to improve the chances of successful vasectomy and this is now done by removing a segment of vas deferens and either tying, burning (cautery) or stitching each end to stop them from rejoining naturally. A vasectomy is now considered to be 99% effective. It is no longer possible to reverse a vasectomy without surgery.
