Here at The Vasectomy Reversal Centre, we understand that vasectomies are sometimes incredibly useful and beneficial to male health. While our job is to reverse vasectomies, we know that many of them were necessary when they were originally carried out. Many of the men who come to us wish to have their vasectomies reversed because their circumstances have changed and they feel they no longer need the benefits a vasectomy can give. They didn’t make a mistake when they had the operation carried out; their lives have simply moved on since then. If you are thinking about having a vasectomy, you may wish to consider what to do when your own circumstances eventually change. You might need the benefits of a vasectomy now, but that may not always be the case. If you accept this before you have your vasectomy, you can start thinking about your eventual vasectomy reversal in advance.
But why should you think about vasectomy reversal before you’ve even had your vasectomy? There are two major reasons. Firstly, planning a future reversal can make the initial vasectomy seem a lot less daunting. If you have your vasectomy carried out without specifically planning to reverse it one day, it can seem very final, which can make the operation psychologically traumatic. By researching reversals and planning to get one (even at an uncertain point in the future), the initial operation can seem more like a simple and temporary precaution. The psychological benefits are incalculable.
Secondly, researching and understanding the reversal process can help you decide if a vasectomy is right for you at all. If you haven’t made up your mind yet, thinking about the reversal process may help you. If you feel that you would be happy to go through the reversal process one day, you may feel more inclined to have the vasectomy. If, however, you would prefer not to go through the process, you may wish to reconsider getting a vasectomy in the first place. Your decision should depend entirely on your personal preferences and what you feel comfortable with.
