I suppose was there are some very rare situations where that would be appropriate. If the 18-year-old had a serious congenital disease that would be a significant enough reason for him to be an acceptable candidate for a vasectomy. However, there is no socially acceptable reason in someone of that age

Absolutely. There just needs to be appropriate counseling for the patient to understand long-standing implications.

Yes, and usually under special circumstances. In these cases, I prefer to have the parents and their primary care provider involved. Although legally there may be no issue in certain states, I want a consensus opinion. Regardless of the reason why a young man would want a vasectomy, there is still a whole lot of life ahead. Trust me, things and situations change.

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?
