I want kids but don't know how to go about it or who to see about vasectomy reversal?

My partner (53yrs old) had a vasectomy over 20yr ago on NHS; now we want kids of our own. How do we go about it? Will it work? I'm only 31 and have 2 daughters myself from a previous relationship.

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?

I'm 35 and I don't think I want to have children. If for some reason I do find someone later on in life, and I want to have kids does it matter how old I am? Could I be 45 and get a reversal? Should I not get a vasectomy if I think I'll want kids?
