Having a Baby After Vasectomy

Vasectomy is safe and long-lasting contraception, but sometimes life circumstances change and you may want to have another child. ICSI offers a way of using your sperm in an IVF cycle, without having to reverse your vasectomy.

If you’ve had a vasectomy and then your circumstances change, you may want to have another child. ICSI is a way to use your sperm in an IVF cycle, without having to reverse your vasectomy.

Bronwen is 35 and Robert is 41. They both have a child each from previous relationships, and Robert had a vasectomy before he met Bronwen. They now want to have a child together.

Their friends recommended talking to a fertility specialist at Queensland Fertility Group on the Gold Coast. So they ask their GP for a referral for a specialist in andrology (male reproductive conditions).

He recommends that Robert undergoes a sperm retrieval procedure and the couple then undergo an IVF cycle using IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).

Fertility treatment considerations

Robert could have his vasectomy reversed, but the chances of pregnancy following a reversal depend on many circumstances, including how long ago the vasectomy was performed.

ICSI is one of the most common techniques used in Assisted Reproductive Technology, and involves the direct injection of a single sperm into each egg using very fine micromanipulation equipment.

Their specialist carried out the simple sperm retrieval procedure at Pindara Hospital. Bronwen underwent her first IVF cycle, and they have six embryos created using ICSI. One was transferred, four were frozen and one was found to be unsuitable for freezing.

Four weeks later she had a blood test, but was not pregnant. One of her frozen embryos was then implanted two months later, and this time they were successful.
