Testing the success of your vasectomy is the only way to know for sure that you are no longer fertile and not able to conceive. The Fellow Vasectomy Test is:
While most vasectomies are sucessful, they are not 100% guaranteed. That's why patients need to use another form of birth control to avoid pregnancy until vasectomy test results show zero sperm in a sample. In some cases, achieving zero sperm takes weeks or months longer than expected, and in rare cases, a second vasectomy is required. Testing is the only way to ensure you will not conceive a child.
The American Urological Association recommends ejaculating at least 15-20 times during an 8 week period following your vasectomy. During this time you and your partner should use other forms of birth control because there may be lingering sperm cells in your reproductive tract.
With a Fellow Vasectomy Test you can produce a sample at home and mail it back (shipping is already included). We'll analyze your sample in our CLIA-approved lab to look for any sperm.
We'll email you a secure webpage with your comprehensive and physician-approved results in just 1.5 days after we receive your sample. If your physician recommended this test for you, we'll also send them a copy of your results if you wish.
If your results indicate you have sperm in your sample, or if your doctor requires two tests to deem a vasectomy successful, test again conveniently at home. Some doctors advise to get tested a year after your procedure to ensure that your vas deferens (what was cut during the vasectomy) did not repair itself.
