Has the wife or the partner been lately asking how to get pregnant after vasectomy? And has this question been bugging you because it was you who opted for vasectomy? Do not worry because there might still be hope. But all that later – first let us find out how pregnancy occurs naturally and how vasectomy affects or stops this. When the couple has successfully engaged in sex, the sperm enters the woman from the vagina and then goes on to penetrate the egg and this is when fertilization happens. This leads to pregnancy. But there are many ifs and buts in this – for example if the man has poor quality sperm, then fertilization become very difficult.
Who are the people who opt for vasectomy? These are the men who want to enjoy sex and yet, do not want a baby. This is actually a surgical process in which the tubes that carry the semen of the man is either cut off or it is tied up and as a result of this, the sperm cannot move from the testes and make his partner pregnant. Because of this process, you may call this process scientific castration. But there can be cases when there is a renewed interest in having a baby and so, the couple begins to wish for one and gets frustrated because the man has undergone the vasectomy surgery. Thus the partner begins to ask – how to get pregnant after vasectomy?
But the good news is, not all is lost. There are still ways in which the couple can have a baby and it is these ways that we are discussing here.
o Luckily (in these cases at least), vasectomy is yet to become an absolutely faultless process and so keep trying. There is still a chance that the man may be able to impregnate the woman. Yes it is possible that the sperm’s supply may not have been entirely cut off. But before doing so, you may want to go in for a sperm analysis to find out whether everything else seems to be all right or not, because the sperm’s quality may also suffer after vasectomy which we will go into later.
o The process of vasectomy can also be reversed and this is known aptly as reverse vasectomy. But this is a more complicated surgery than vasectomy itself (and less successful as well) and it is also costly. Further it is also not covered by insurance. In this, the tube that carries the sperm from the testes is re-connected but this can happen only when the tube was tied up and not when it was cut off. However technically this remains a possibility and when done successfully, it can allow the man to impregnate the woman because the sperm can again travel to fertilize the egg within the vagina. But vasectomy also tends to affect the quality of the sperm. What happens is that after a person has gone for vasectomy, the immunity of the body begins to fight the sperm and develops anti-bodies against the sperm, and this is not good news. Thus the need to analyze the sperm’s quality.
o There are other options too and they involve assisted methodologies such as ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) and IVF (In-vitro Fertilization). In these processes, the sperm is collected from the male and the egg from the woman and the embryologist completed the fertilization in the lab in a test tube. If a person has opted for vasectomy, the sperm may be collected from the testes and the embryologist will need just 1 good sperm, and it can still work out. There’s yet another option for the couple and this is to approach a sperm bank for donor sperms.
Opting for conventional treatments for infertility is a common practice among many, but most of them do not know that these treatments have a poor success rate and that, they often come with harmful side effects. The conventional approach promotes assisted technologies without trying to find out the real problem. On the other hand holistic remedies do just this at the beginning. And once the real problem has been identified, the right remedy can be suggested that can be Chinese medicines, herbs, exercise, diet and lifestyle changes and acupuncture. So before asking how to get pregnant after vasectomy, it is always advisable that you enhance your chances of a successful pregnancy by opting for holistic treatments. This is sure to work out.
