Vasectomies are the most effective form of birth control, secondary only to abstinence. It is a permanent form of birth control that needs serious and full consideration before obtaining it. Most doctors have criteria they follow when determining if a patient is a good candidate for a vasectomy, such as asking the patient if they do not want any more children and their partner is in agreement. Most are hesitant to perform a vasectomy on a man who has never had children unless the patient is absolutely certain that they never want children.

Even after the careful screening of patients before performing a vasectomy, life circumstances are notorious for throwing changes into a person’s life that may make them change their minds about wanting children (or more children). So, since vasectomies are permanent, what happens then? You call Magic Valley Urology in Twin Falls, Idaho, to schedule a consultation about vasectomy reversal.

The vasectomy procedure cuts the vas deferens and seals them to prevent sperm from being mixed with seminal fluid before ejaculation, but sperm are still being produced. If a man changes his mind about fathering children after a vasectomy, it is possible to have a reversal done to reconnect the cut vas deferens and try to get the sperm flowing to the seminal fluid once more.
