19- What alternatives are there to vasectomy reversals?

In certain circumstances it may be worthwhile considering vasoepididymostomy or sperm extraction (sperm banking). In these cases, the assisted reproductive techniques inducing intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) combined with in vitro-fertilization would be utilized.

Possible circumstances can include blockage of the partner’s fallopian tubes, spinal cord injury, men born without a vas deferens, testis cancer and a failed vasectomy reversal.

The cost of sperm extraction in conjunction with in vitro fertilization is considerably higher than a reversal. Therefore, very few "vasectomized" men will choose sperm extraction as the first procedure to restore their fertility.
