Vasectomy is the procedure of cutting up the tubes (vas deferens) of the male reproductive system in order to prevent conception. For couples who did not want children early in their relationships, vasectomy is a common procedure. However, after a certain time, when the couple decides of conceiving, vasectomy can be reversed.
However, it is noteworthy that the success of Vasectomy Reversal has a direct correlation with the amount of time that has passed since the vasectomy was performed.
What the procedure does is that it reconnects each of the tubes that carries the sperm into the semen. This reversal then helps couples in conceiving through natural means as the sperms are back into the semen and can fertilise the female egg again.
