Even for Men Over 50, Vasectomy Reversals Equally Successful

Even for Men Over 50, Vasectomy Reversals Equally Successful

Studies have now shown that vasectomy reversals (at Z Urology) are as viable in men over 50 as in those who are younger. About 20% of American men who have had a vasectomy want to father children in the future. About 6% will seek a vasectomy reversal, previous research shows.

However, it’s been unclear how a man’s age may affect his chances for a successful reversal. The jury was always out on this.

In studies, researchers analyzed the outcomes of vasectomy reversal in about 3,000 men older than 50 (average age: 54) and 350 younger men (average age: 39). All of their procedures were performed by one surgeon. After a vasectomy reversal, the partners of 33.4% of the younger men and 26.1% of the older men got pregnant.

The study found that the chances of pregnancy were better when the woman was under 35 and/or the man had had his vasectomy fewer than 10 years before. On a side note, the odds were lower if the man smoked.

Researchers noted that one other variable was that older men in the study were statistically less successful than younger men in getting their partners pregnant because older men tended to have older partners.

The research is especially timely because fertility doctors are seeing an increase in the number of men interested in vasectomy reversals as couples focus on family planning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Couples wanting to get pregnant after a vasectomy have two choices: vasectomy reversal and sperm extraction with in vitro fertilization (IVF).

IVF has risks, such as psychological distress and multiple births, and typically costs more than a reversal, making reversal a better choice for many couples, Samplaski said.

These findings were recently published in the journal Urology.

The Effectiveness of a Vasectomy

The Effectiveness of a Vasectomy

 

Men all over the world consider different ways of birth control. When most people think of birth control, they usually think of the pills that women take in order to stop the pregnancy cycle. However, there are tons of different types of birth control. Condoms, IUDs, birth control implants, birth control shots and of course, a vasectomy. A vasectomy is a permanent form of birth control that involves removing or blocking the van deferens from being able to transport sperm from the testicles to the penis. Out of all of the birth control options, a vasectomy is one of the most effective forms.

 

Procedure of the Vasectomy

 

The first step of a vasectomy is finding a trusted Urologist to take care of one of the most sensitive parts of your body. Z Urology is home to fellowship-trained and very experienced South Florida urologists. Your traditional vasectomy consists of making a couple slits within the scrotum with a scalpel. Through these slits, the surgeon will enter the scrotum and remove the vas deferens within. Once the vas deferens have been removed, there will no longer be any transfer of sperm from the testicles to the penis. Your scrotum will then be stitched up and sealed in order for the surgery to complete and the recovery period to begin.

 

Recovering After a Vasectomy

 

As all surgeries, after a vasectomy you may experience pain and discomfort within the area. As long as this doesn’t become worse or an intense pain, then everything is going according to plan. The recovery period isn’t as long as you would assume. A wait period of 2 – 3 days is recommended after the completion of a vasectomy before returning to work. If pain is bothering, an ice pack is also recommended. Do not be shocked by having blood within your semen for the following few weeks. Your body must drain itself of the remaining semen in order to completely nullify the chance of pregnancy. After 8 – 15 weeks, your sperm count should be close, if not already, zero. Your urologist will help guide you through the recovery phase as well.

Wikipedia defines vasectomy as the following:

“Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilization or permanent contraception. During the procedure, the male vasa deferentia are cut and tied or sealed so as to prevent sperm from entering into the urethra and thereby prevent fertilization of a female through sexual intercourse. Vasectomies are usually performed in a physician’s office, medical clinic, or, when performed on an animal, in a veterinary clinic—hospitalization is not normally required as the procedure is not complicated, the incisions are small, and the necessary equipment routine.

There are several methods by which a surgeon might complete a vasectomy procedure, all of which occlude (i.e., “seal”) at least one side of each vas deferens. To help reduce anxiety and increase patient comfort, men who have an aversion to needles may consider a “no-needle” application of anesthesia while the “no-scalpel” or “open-ended” techniques help to accelerate recovery times and increase the chance of healthy recovery.

Due to the simplicity of the surgery, a vasectomy usually takes less than thirty minutes to complete. After a short recovery at the doctor’s office (usually less than an hour), the patient is sent home to rest. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, many vasectomy patients find that they can resume their typical sexual behavior within a week, and do so with little or no discomfort.”

Planned Parenthood defines a vasectomy as “a simple surgery done by a doctor in an office, hospital, or clinic. The small tubes in your scrotum that carry sperm are cut or blocked off, so sperm can’t leave your body and cause pregnancy. The procedure is very quick, and you can go home the same day. And it’s extremely effective at preventing pregnancy — almost 100%.”

Since vasectomy is such an effective type of male birth control it is very popular. Each and every year, more than 500,000 men in the United States of America choose vasectomy as their preferred choice for male birth control. A vasectomy prevents pregnancy better than any other method of birth control available today, except abstinence. Only one to two women out of 1,000 will get pregnant in the first year after their partners have had a vasectomy.
