Can the sperm be effective after a vasectomy was done 35 years ago?

Answered by John C. McHugh, MD

It is possible for viable sperm to be aspirated from the testicle or after a vasectomy reversal. The likelihood decreases as the time from the vasectomy increases. I'd start with a call to your local reproductive clinic for the percentages. So...possible but the percentage of success is on the low side.
