Hi
I read your message and felt I should reply, my partner had a vasectomy 13 years ago and had a reversal in January of this year. It was unsuccessful. We were both heartbroken. We are told it failed because of a blockage and the thorough job that was done on the origional op. We are unsure where to go from here - we are seeking ivf but also considering adoption. my partner is not considering a redo, He has decided this for a number of reasons, the blockage could be being caused by scare tissue and in our mind, more ops could result in more scar tissue, and also more ops - more risk of testicular cancer which is a real concern for my bloke. We have been told that there is a more sophisticated way of doing the reversal which might result in a better prognosis but we have decided to go for the ssr route.

It is really positive that you have good quality sperm as it means that maybe its just a matter of persevering with it -
I found a good message board where there is the chance to talk to a micro surgoen specialising in reversals - have a look on there it was really helpful for me. http://www.vasectomyreversal.net/
He is an american surgeon but really kind and helpful and answers you questions as fully as possible. there are loads of success stories too!
good luck x

Hiya

I agree with you to be honest.  I am desperate, but have to respect my partners feelings.  As I am childless I will do anything to have a baby of our own, my partner however has a child from a previous  relationship and is coming from a different place and has limits to what he prepared to do to get what we both want.  It is a heart breaking situation but one we are trying to deal with and pull together on. 

I would love to hear how you get on and who the consultant is you are seeing.  At the end of the day you have to make choices based on how you and your wife feel, and yes, need to know you have done what you can or else i think regret will gradually creep in. 

good luck to you both  and let me know what you decide to do
