First of all, it is important to understand that getting pregnant without having a vasectomy surgically reversed is very rare, but not unheard of. In fact, getting pregnant after a vasectomy is rarer than getting pregnant after having your tubes tied.
However, if you want to have a better chance of getting pregnant after a vasectomy, you might want to consider having a vasectomy reversal. Some women do end up getting pregnant by “chance” after their guy’s vasectomy, but there is no way to tell who that will be, it is just a game of chance as to which vasectomies “fail” and which ones “stick”.
Vasectomy reversals are basically a surgery to reattach the tubes that allow a man to impregnate a woman. Around sixty percent of vasectomy reversals are successful, meaning 3 out of 5 men go on to impregnate a woman after a reversal.
It usually takes around a year from the time of the reversal for a woman to become pregnant, but that is only an average, and everyone’s experiences are different. Vasectomy reversal is also relatively low risk, and usually just uncomfortable rather than painful for the man.
However, you should definitely be aware that vasectomy reversal is a very expensive procedure. The average cost is between $3000 to $5000 and it is often not covered by insurance. So make sure you’re certain of your future plans when planning that vasectomy in the first place.
There is also another option for getting pregnant after vasectomy, and that is sperm retrieval combined with in vitro fertilization. You should be aware, however that this method is even more expensive than a vasectomy reversal.
Basically, the bottom line is to be very sure if you want to get a vasectomy, because having children after that can be difficult, not to mention expensive. Also, keep in mind that the more time passes between the vasectomy and the reversal or the desire to have children, the less likely it is to happen.
