Recanalisation of the vas deferens and the Fallopian tubes, Both can be undertaken via laparoscopy or open procedure
The duration of vasectomy/tubectomy are also important , longer the duration the lesser the chances of success
Tubectomy reversal has a 70% chance of success which should be followed up by a HSG(Hystero-salpingogram) in 3 months

A vasectomy is a procedure in which the vas deferentia tubules are detached to prevent birth control. In vasectomy reversal the detached tubes are again joined for the sperm flow. To determine how successful the vasectomy reversal is based on the duration of time in between the two procedures. As the time gap is prolonged there is a possibility of blockages to form in the tubes.
Vasectomy reversal is a daytime procedure beginned by giving some local anesthetic to the individual, while the surgery takes anywhere between 2 to 4 hours. The procedure begins by making an incision which is made on either sides of the scrotum and the vas deferentia tubules are traced.Using a microscope and with help of some other surgical medical tools the ends of the tubes are cut and smoothened and joined using fine micro sutures or stitches.
The detached tubules are joined there by making the sperm movement or flow from testicles to semen is allowed, there by the male remains fertile. Post reversal surgery, your doctor suggests some medications to pacify the pain and avoid threat of any infections. Afterwards sperm test is done to conclude if the surgery was successful or not.

After the vasectomy reversal surgery there are around 20 to 75% chances of men to to conceive. Vasectomy reversal success rates is based on which procedure has been followed as given below:
- 50 to 70 % of men conceive after vasovasostomy (VV)
- 20 to 40 % of men conceive after vasoepididymostomy (VE)
Tubectomy reversal is a surgical procedure where the fallopian tubes are sealed or blocked thereby preventing the eggs from discharging into the uterus. Also it restricts or prevents the sperm's passage making its way into the fallopian tubes to fertilize with the matured egg. In tubectomy reversal this fallopian tube is blocked so that union of egg and sperm is restricted.
Prior to the tubectomy reversal, the infertility specialist doctor shall ask you to go for some blood tests and scanning to make sure that the ovaries are active and fertile. A HSG test is done to determine the efficiency of the fallopian tube.
In the tubectomy reversal surgery, general anesthesia is given and the doctor makes a cut in the abdominal region and implants laparoscope to visualize the fallopian tube end images for better clarity. If needed the doctor uses other surgical tools to make further incisions to cut the ends of the fallopian tubes, they are then detached and stitched.
Post surgery, your doctor prescribes some meditations to ease the pain and minimize the discomfort after the surgery and eliminate chances of bleeding or infections.To determine if the tubectomy reversal surgery was success or not, factors like age is considered.
