Brief Answer: Repeat seminal analysis 3 months after surgery Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. After vasectomy it may take around 3 months to get nil spermatozoa in seminal analysis. In vasectomy only the passage of spermatozoa is occluded and usually the production will continue. Spermatozoa produced before vasectomy can be present in the pathway in front of surgical site. So, usage of contraceptive measures for 3 months after vasectomy is recommended to avoid pregnancy. After 3 months of surgery go for repeat seminal analysis to confirm the success of vasectomy. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.

Thank you Dr Gouri, yes will use condoms & have another test later. But for now just to clarify my understanding, appreciate your confirming my thoughts i.e.- Motile Sperm has more chance of successful pregnancy than Non Motile sperm - correct?
