No real average - depends but the most important consideration is the expertise of the surgeon, which impacts the results more than anything. Unlikely insurance covers. My website can provide you more details and my own figures.

Insurance, as a rule, does not cover a reversal. It costs between $3,000-$15,000. The higher end involves having general anesthesia in a hospital. The priced decreases downward depending on the type of anesthesia and location, i.e. hospital vs. clinic setting.

Cost depends on region and what the market will bear. In Memphis, the total cost is around $8,500. Insurance rarely covers, with the exception of some Massachusetts-based plans.

Price depends on the practice, and insurance does not cover the procedure >90% of the time. Average cost in US is around $10,000 (our cost is $6,300).

All depends on who does it and what part of the country you have the procedure. I've seen it for as little as $1700 in the southwest and as high as $15,000 in New York (done by world renown surgeons). Some insurances will cover it for around $500, but I know of no surgeon willing to accept that rate.

I had a vasectomy before meeting my partner and now that we will be marrying soon, we'd like to start a family. So I had a vasectomy reversal three months ago. I have not ejaculated more than 10 times for purity purposes before marriage. I had my sperm tested after the reversal procedure and it shows that the sperm has not returned. Can we hold out hope? Is there a chance the sperm will return?
