Vasovasostomy is the procedure to reverse a vasectomy.
- Post-vasectomy pain syndrome
- Male infertility
A small cut will be made on each side of the scrotum. The scarred ends of the vas deferens are trimmed where they were closed by the vasectomy. A sample of fluid from the vasal end closest to the testis is removed and checked to see if sperm is present.
If sperm is present, the pathway will be reconnected for the sperm to get into the semen through a vasovasostomy. During this procedure, the cut ends of the vas deferens are reattached or the ends of the vas deferens are joined to the epididymis.
After the Procedure
Medication should control any pain you may experience over a few days or weeks. Generally, you can return to your normal routine and light work within a week. Sexual intercourse is not recommended for two to three weeks.
