I am doing my research on the above topic and came across this article by Michael Feinman, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.
My husband is 52 and had his vasectomy 13 years ago and had it reversed 4 years ago. After the reversal they said it was a success, but once we started trying to conceive (about a year later) we were challenged and learned that he had a zero sperm count. The doctor who preformed the reversal said a blockage could have occurred and that our best bet to conceive would be sperm retrieval and IVF. I am very regular and my OB was the one who suggested he get a sperm analysis done because she thought that the problem did not reside in me.
I am 38 and healthy.
Given these few facts, what would be our best success rate to conceive? And how long does the process take?
And we are also concerned about going through this process and conceiving a child with defects either mental or physical. How likely is this?
Another challenge we face is that this will be a total out of pocket expense.
Thank you.

Hello Rockwell,
At age 38, you have an excellent chance of success with IVF and sperm extraction. I recommend you get started by making a new patient consultation so I can explain the in vitro procedure in detail to you, including the costs. The biggest risk to you is having a twin gestation,which can be overcome by transferring a single embryo. Please feel free to contact our office for more information and details regarding financial costs.

Thank you
