Here at The Vasectomy Reversal Centre, we pride ourselves on having a high success rate following our procedures. For the reversal of vasectomies performed within the last seven years, we boast a 98% success rate, and we are constantly aiming to improve this figure. However, a very small percentage of operations are not a success, and there are things that you can do to severely limit the chances of this happening to you.
Basically, maintaining a healthy sperm count is the key to vasectomy reversal success, and living a healthy, happy lifestyle is the way to achieve this. Small changes can really make a difference to your health, well-being and fertility.
Smoking lowers fertility, due to the toxins in tobacco smoke, and excessive drinking will also negatively affect sperm count, as alcohol virtually stops testosterone production.
Weight training is the best form of exercise to boost testosterone levels, but don’t worry, you don’t have to turn into a gym rat. Just three 45 minute weight sessions per week should do it. Split your body into three parts and train each part once per week. Now throw in some gentle cycling, jogging or swimming to help that fat along its way. You will be pleased to hear that, contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to produce huge lung burning efforts to lose fat. The ideal intensity for fat burning is without getting out of breath, but breaking a sweat.
Having a healthy diet that is low in saturated fats, and high in nutritious, vitamin dense, whole foods, will help fuel your body with all it needs to stay fit and healthy. Avoid processed foods wherever possible. Make sure you keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water too; dehydration has a negative effect on virtually every single bodily function.
Make sure you get plenty of quality rest. Rest is the key to recovery and staying healthy. If you have trouble sleeping, try relaxation therapies, such as yoga, meditation and deep breathing techniques.
