Definition

Vasectomy reversal is surgery to undo a vasectomy. It re-connects the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles into the semen. After successful vasectomy reversal, sperm are again present and you may be able to get your partner pregnant. Vasectomy reversal works for most men, but for some men vasectomy reversal isn't successful.

Why It's Done

Men decide to have a vasectomy reversal for a number of reasons, including loss of a child, remarriage or improved finances making it feasible to raise a child. Vasectomy reversal can be attempted even if several years have passed since the original procedure.
