Q4. Am I a suitable candidate for a vasectomy reversal?

A4. This will be decided during your consultation with the surgeon. Your reasons for wanting this surgery, your age, your reproductive health and that of your partner will be taken into account. This procedure is difficult and takes longer to perform that a vasectomy and does not guarantee success. These are all aspects you need to be aware of and your surgeon will want to be sure that you understand these before making a decision. If he/she feels that you would not be best served by a reversal then he/she will recommend an alternative. A vasectomy reversal is often recommended for patients suffering from ‘post-vasectomy pain syndrome’. Find out more in our why vasectomy reversal section.
