There are several questions that you need to tackle when deciding whether you are ready for a vasectomy reversal. To help make the choice easier, we’ve compiled a list that will help you understand the most important ones.
1. How has your life changed since your vasectomy?
It’s important to think back to your original reasons for choosing to have a vasectomy. Are those reasons still relevant or have your circumstances changed so much that this is not the case? If your original reasons for getting a vasectomy are no longer relevant, having a vasectomy reversal may be the best option for you. If, however, your circumstances have not changed significantly, it may not be the right time to consider a reversal.
2. Are you ready to have children?
A vasectomy reversal will allow you to have children. You may be considering a reversal for the specific purpose of having children, in fact. However, it is important to ask yourself if you’re ready for the level of commitment that having children entails, or if you may change your mind after having the reversal. You should be comfortable with the idea of having children before you commit to a vasectomy reversal.
