What is the success rate for vasectomy reversals?

back to FAQ list

The chances of resulting sperm in the ejaculate after a vasectomy reversal are excellent. Although this does not guarantee pregnancy, the chances of a subsequent pregnancy are still high. However, the chance of pregnancy declines with increasing time from the reversal procedure.

If a vasectomy reversal was performed less than 3 years after the vasectomy, the man has a 97% likelihood of having sperm in the ejaculate and the couple has a 76% chance of becoming pregnant. At 3-8 years, 88% of the men will have sperm and 53% of the couples will become pregnant. At 9-14 years, 79% of the men will have sperm and 44% of couples will become pregnant. If a vasectomy reversal was performed over 15 years after the vasectomy, 71% of men will have resulting sperm and 30% of the couples will become pregnant.

Keep in mind that the sperm produced from the resulting vasectomy reversal can also be used with additional assisted reproductive techniques to significantly increase the chances of a pregnancy.
