Currently seeking advice.I am 25 years old and my partner of 3 years had a vasectomy 10 years ago. He already has 2 children and seems happy to stop there. I told hm in the beginning of his relationship that I was unsure about having children but would like to have some in the future now.
I have read that after a vasectomy its very difficult to have a successful reversal after 10 years and the possibility of me conceiving would be 25%. And its not free on the NHS (but it is available in some areas).
Every time I address this subject with him, he changes the subject. I asked him to speak to the GP and see if its available in the area. He hasn't done it and wont even mention it.
Now although I don't want children now, time is not on my side. Its been 10 years since his vasectomy so the chances of being successful only 25%. If available on the NHS, the waiting list is very long. And advice I have read says that after reversal, you shouldn't attempt to conceive for at least 6 months. This equates to a long time! Plus I would need tests to check my fertility before the reversal goes ahead.
How would anyone else approach this situation? Sorry its so long, just wanted to give all the details.
