Vasectomy Testing Frequency & Other Tips

Generally, your physician will confirm the number of tests required to confirm your sterility, along with the frequency of those tests.  If you are unable to consult your physician on these points, we recommend the following:

  • Test yourself at two different time intervals in the first three months after your vasectomy. Generally, it’s best to test 60 and 90 days after your procedure.

  • To detect possible recanalization, or the formation of a new channel in the vas deferens through which sperm can move, test yourself six months after your vasectomy. It’s also best to perform additional testing once per year for the first three years after your vasectomy.
