Brief Answer:
No guarantee for reversal

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Success rate of scalpel-less vasectomies is not better than open ended. The best results are when the reversal is done within 3 years. If the reversal is done after 3 years then the chances of pregnancy is always less than 50% and after 10 years it is less than 30%

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

I wish you good health

Hello

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for getting back

I am very happy you are starting a new life and all the best.

I suggest the following things to you

1. Get a semen analysis done to see for the amount of sperms after reversal
2. If the sperm count is less and natural method has not worked out then in vitro fertilization is ideal for you
3. There are no magic prodcuts, herbs or medications to help you with this situation
4. Approach a fertility clinic for professional help

With right guidance from a fertility clinic you will definitely conceive.

My sperm count tested @ one lab is 17.6 million/ml Actively motile 70%,liquefaction within 30 minutes.Dr.Prescribed me to take M-Gam (Glenmark) tablet daily up to 2 months.After taking tablets for 2 weeks I tested at another lab & the reading shows 95 millions/ml, 50 % actively motile & liquefaction with 30 minutes. I also encounter knee pain while this medication.I doubt whether my first lab reading is right & knee pain is side effect of this tablet. I feel my sperm count cannot increase from 17 to 95 within 2 weeks medication. SHall I stop medication? Kindly advice

My husband and I are trying to concieve but just recently had a sperm analysis done that came back as "no sperm". After an ultrasound we found that he has a right epididymal head cyst. Could this be the cause of our sperm analysis results and will we be able to correct it so we can concieve?
