in vitro fertilization with vasectomy
In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technique with a wide range of opportunities to achieve pregnancy, in the case of couples in which the husband has vasectomy the treatment of in vitro fertilization will be the most indicated.
It is important to be clear that vasectomy is a non-invasive surgical procedure, in which the deferential ducts of the man are sectioned and linked to avoid having children, so it is considered as a permanent and irreversible method of contraception, since it prevents the release of sperm in ejaculation. This surg
ical intervention is very effective and has few side effects, however there is the possibility of being reversed through the so-called vasovasostomy, but sometimes this reversal does not allow to recover the seminal quality, that is then how much assisted reproductive techniques such as in vitro fertilization can help these men to fulfill their illusion of being parents.
In order to perform in vitro fertilization after a vasectomy, a man must first undergo certain low-complexity surgeries such as:
Sperm aspiration, in which as the name implies sperm is removed from the testicle by aspiration, these are microinjected in the eggs of the partner or a donor is the case through in vitro fertilization (intracytoplasmic sperm injection)
Testicular biopsy, in which a very small portion of testicular tissue is removed, by an incision that is performed under local anesthesia for about 15 to 2o minutes, seeking to find sperm that can be used in the in vitro fertilization of the e
ggs. In both cases the process of in vitro fertilization will be carried out normally, i.e. the woman must undergo ovarian stimulation to then remove the eggs by follicular puncture, in this way obtain a greater number of embryos in in vitro fertilization, which will be implanted in the patient's uterus.
