While you my very good reasons and intentions for wanting to make a child after a vasectomy, keep in mind that for all intents and purposes, a vasectomy is considered a permanent form of family planning.

A reversal is not guaranteed to succeed.
The longer the time between your vasectomy and your reversal, the lower the success rate.
A reversal is more complicated and takes about 3-4 hours, while a vasectomy requires about 10-15 minutes.
Likewise recovery for a reversal can take anywhere from 5 to 14 days, while a vasectomy requires just a few days.
It is likely to be 10 times as expensive and insurance does not cover the procedure.
There are whole countries where there’s not a single reversal specialist.
Despite the limitations of the procedure, we believe that a viable vasectomy program should also be able to offer a reversal service.
Banking sperm is a relatively easy process, but not necessarily available or affordable to everyone nor everywhere.  To get more specific information, look on line or visit Dr. Stein’s website
Other possible options besides a reversal are called ART or Assisted Reproduction Techniques. They are mainly used for couples experiencing infertility challenges. They are significantly more expensive than a reversal and are not guaranteed to succeed. Always consider a vasectomy a permanent form of family planning.
If  decide on a vasectomy, yet still want to leave open the possibility for having a biological child or children in the future, you should consider freezing your sperm.  This is option is expensive, is not available in every country and it is not 100% reliable.  That said, many doctors recommend this option for young men or men who have not had any children. and want a vasectomy.
