    Hi there my friend had a vasectomy reversal which worked. The success rate is 80% if the vasectomy is reversed within 5 years of the original vasectomy being done. So the odds are in your favour for it to work!!

    The doctor normally checks the ejaculation sample for sperm three months after the reversal to see if it has worked. I don't know whether it would be possible to get preg before that though!

    He'll need to avoid strenous exercise and lifting for about 4 weeks after as well. He'll feel really sore for a few days as well as my friend was and he had to have a general for the op as well.

    Good luck with it all x

    Oh thats great thank you!! Its good to hear that it does actually work!! x
  • Hi my friends partner has just had this done after 2 years of the orginal op and like the dr's said the sooner it's done the better the chance of it working. They just have to wait for his sample to be checked to see if it's atually worked, but the clinic where he had it done seemed pretty optimistic. Good luck xxxxx
