“Should I use a sperm bank before a vasectomy?” This is a regular question we get asked by men considering a vasectomy .  In this article, we take a look at some questions around this subject.

Can a No-Scalpel Vasectomy be reversed?

In some cases it’s possible to reverse a vasectomy however a person must seriously consider the risk of the procedure not being reversable. Sometimes unthinkable changes may apply to a mans life such as – a new partner, the loss of a child, the loss of your partner therefore a man and his partner should be aware that reversing a vasectomy is not always possible.  We definitely recommend that you consider vasectomy a permanent form of contraception when making your decision. Pre-vasectomy Sperm Banking (cryopreservation) is a good idea for anyone considering a vasectomy.

If you’re considering a vasectomy you may want to consider using a sperm bank

Choosing to have a vasectomy is a serious decision because it is carried out with the intention of creating permanent sterility. Our experience with patients over the years has shown that some men who opt for a vasectomy later change their minds about their desire to have children.

The decision on whether to store sperm as a way to potentially conceive a child in the future is an important one. Conception using stored sperm is not certain, and the necessary medical insemination process can be costly. Cryogenic sperm storage is a good insurance policy but is not a fully reliable method. If you are concerned to ensure future ability to conceive a child, then the vasectomy itself should be reconsidered.

Should I use a sperm bank before a vasectomy?

In the unlikely event that you will want to have kids again in the future, and vasectomy reversal is not an option, or successful, sperm storage may be a way of allowing yourself to procreate again. Please consider storing sperm prior to your vasectomy.
