    What does calcified vas deferens mean?

Posted on Mon, 16 Mar 2015 in General Health
Question: Does a calcified vas deferens mean you are sterile? How long does it take to get a calcified vas deferens
Answered by Dr. Ivo Ditah 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
Are both calcified?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this query.

This is unlikely to mean that you are sterile. We each posses two and if one is calcified, one is largely enough to ensure that we get enough sperms for reproductive purposes. However, if both are calcified, it becomes very concerning. There is no solution to get it unblocked. The best approach would be to analyse your semen to see what it look like as it provides the greatest information on what the chances of fertility are.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
