Oh going for VR op end of this month....


Hi girls, I am 33, OH is 40. I have 2 kids from previous marriage and my OH has 3! They range from 4 yrs to 12 yrs. We want one between us now to join us all together as a proper family. OH had vasectomy about 7 yrs ago. We went for consultation at BMI Droitwich Spa and were told that we have around 75% chance of getting pregnant. It is a lot of money but we have decided to go for the op at the end of Jan and then just let fate decide..
I'll keep you posted on any news and will keep an eye on here for success stories to keep my spirits high..
...if its meant to be, it will be..

@Foxy, Good luck with the VR. I hope it is a success and that your OH gets lots of healthy !!!

MY DH's vasectomy was 14 years old and when we reversed it it was successful and he had even though his count was low.

Wow! Where has the past month gone??

I'd meant to pop back on and update you sooner but life has been manic!

Thomas James arrived on the 14th January at 13.31 weighing in at 8lb 2oz. His birth was everything I'd hoped for and planned - he was born in the birthing pool in my living room after a very easy 5hr labour. I used my homeopathy, aromatherapy, tens and had a whiff of entonox through transition - I can't recall being in pain at anytime (thanks to the natal hypnotherapy!) and just feelings of intense pressure.

I'm so in love

Sperm success!


Hi, ladies, hope all is well! It's been a long time since I've posted, but need to update and give anyone dealing with a tough surgery some hope!

Recap: DH had a hernia repair and undescendent testicle surgery at a very early age (newborn hernia and about 2 or 3 yrs old for the other one). Due to these surgeries, his left testicle never formed, and his right testicle only partially formed. He had a TON of scarring down there, and thus, had zero sperm in ejaculate.

September 28th, 2012, DH had a surgery to by-pass the blockage (the most complicated vasectomy reversal surgery, the Vasoepididymostomy). The surgeon at that time found all the scarring and we learned about his poor testicles. The surgeon said the surgery was VERY difficult, and that it was a 50/50 shot on whether the surgery would be successful. He did find live sperm at surgery time.

Early December 2012, 2 months post-op, SA results = zero sperm.

Yesterday, we had an appointment with our fertility clinic to say "let's do IVF". The Dr. informed us that we would have to travel to Toronto (we live in Alberta) to do IVF, as no one in Alberta does the surgery my DH needs to extract sperm (I think it's a tough surgery for DH as he's already had two surgeries in 2012 down there). So that was kind of a blow, the added travel costs. But you do what you have to, right? Anyways, the Dr. said, "we should do another SA b/c it's been 3 months since your last one, and even if we find only 10 sperm, we'll freeze them, and elimate the TESE so that you guys can do IVF here locally!" We totally agreed, so hubby did an SA this morning at the fertility clinic, AND OMG he had 600,000 sperm show up!!! 30% motility! We COULD NOT believe it!

We are EXACTLY 5 months post-op, and we are hoping that over the next few months, with some follow-up SA's, that we see some progression! (The surgeon emailed me back after I told him our good news, and said it is possible to see progression on count and motility up to a year post-op.)

At the very least, IVF costs will be lower, but MAYBE we could do IUI's if we get the sperm count up!

So ladies, there is TOTALLY hope; we had the most difficult surgery with the most difficult outcome, and we now have sperm in ejaculate!!!!

Please PM me if you have any questions!

Ive been lurking for quite some time now and thought it was time to start sharing our journey.
My dh had a vasectomy in 2009 on advice from my cardiologist (i have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, icd), after he had the V we looked further into my condition and discovered this 'advice' should have never been given. At first we just shrugged it of as we already have 2 gorgeous children but last August, dh got very broody and told me he wanted a vr. And so the saving began! We had our consult a few days ago and booked his vr in for the 19th April!

He told us our chances of success are 85-90% which is great. So in approx 10 weeks we can finally start TTC the final addition to our family. I will keep u updated!

Thanks!
