Have you had a change of heart about your plans for having a child? Do you ever wish you could go back on that decision you made some time ago to get a vasectomy? Well as you may know, there is always the option of getting a vasectomy reversal. And in case you have any friends or family who have undergone a vasectomy reversal, yet continue to struggle with conception, don’t let this discourage you. There’s probably a perfectly reasonable and legitimate explanation. You just have to do a bit of research. We’re here to make your doubts disappear, so that you can get the vasectomy reversal New York service you need to get your plans back on track for the future.

The Doctor Knows Best
First and foremost, we cannot emphasize enough that whatever doubts you and your partner may have, you should always confer with your doctor for professional advice over any online publication. There is no blog or magazine that can tell you precisely what the best course of action is for you and your particular circumstances better than a trained physician who knows you personally. However, in the interest of spreading some peace of mind to our readers, we just wanted to reassure you that there’s a decent chance that you worry a bit too much.

Dealing With The Anxiety Following A Reversal
All too often, couples tend to assume the worst when they don’t see the results they want as soon as they had hoped. Men may assume the reversal didn’t work. Women begin to ponder whether it was their fault all along that they’ve been having trouble conceiving. Albeit, the variety of causes of infertility among men and women is vast. But it’s important to keep in mind that these things take time, and it is quite likely that the two of you just need to wait a little bit longer.

A Few Facts About The Process
Doctors frequently hear from their patients and their patients’ partners that there’s something wrong, when in reality, it’s only a matter of time. A vasectomy reversal will usually take a number of months for a man’s sperm count to replenish. If he has had a vasovasectomy, he shouldn’t be concerned until some three months have passed without any appearance of sperm in the ejaculate. But there are also more complex procedures that have a high rate of success, but can take anywhere from six months to a year to see results. Then there’s the additional step of the sperm normalizing. Again, it is very important to remain in touch with your physician as opposed to drawing any of your own conclusions based on limited information.

Turning Over Sperm
In most cases, getting pregnant can take anywhere from six months to a year following a vasectomy reversal. That’s because even if sperm appears in the ejaculate after three to six months, it will still usually take up nine or so months and sometimes longer before the semen contains an adequate quantity of sperm for conception to be a realistic goal. So if you’re tiptoeing along the ten month mark and still getting negative pregnancy tests, don’t worry. You are still in the realm of normalcy.
