@StillHopeful How you feeling Hun still poas hehehe hope you are well
Dh just wants to enjoy each other and in 3 yrs he will get the vasectomy done again if not fallen pregnant by then , his idea is truthful and relaxed so will go with that . I mean we haven't fallen pregnant in 2.5 yrs if good trying I think we're pretty safe
ds will be 11 yrs by then so I think I will be fully moved on with the baby land
Any VR updates? @monroe78 , would love to hear how your story turned out!
I'm from the Gold Coast and my husband is two weeks into his recovery. A local urologist, Dr Chris Tracey, did his op at Pindara. The total cost was $1,200 including gap, PHI excess and aneathasist costs.
We had originally booked at the Metrocentre but heard of the cheaper alternative just days before the his op was scheduled there. It looks like the Metrocentre is closed down now?
Anyway, so far so good. We have a follow-up appointment with Dr Tracey this week. We're so excited to be just that little bit closer to starting our family.
We've heard so much mixed advice on recovery/when is an okay time to start trying so I'd love to hear what everyone else knows!

we jumped off the ttc wagon 2.5 yes after VR - haven't gone back to dr leichet.... Metro centre - Maybe never if it's closed down? Is that at gold coast that's where my DH had is surgery
Good luck with your results I sure hope you get a great result !!!!
we weren't allowed to start trying untill 3 months
Aww no, sorry to hear that!
Yeah, the GC Metrocentre looks like it's gone.. unless it's just moved.
Thanks for letting me know the timeframe to start ttc. I think I've been a little bit excited/naive to think it's a quick process. I'm still optimistic though!
Good luck to you, hope you are one of the lucky ones! The only advice I can give is make sure you get copies of your post VR semen analysis results! I know some of the girls have basically been lied to by their surgeons and were given a lot of false hope! Ours didn't, he was very realistic and forthcoming with our results-just makes it easier to get your head around!
Hi surfergirl, I wish you all the best for a short and successful TTC journey.
Great advice from Onedaymaybebaby x
We had our VR over 2 years ago now at MetroCentre GC, he does have a brissy clinic too so I wonder if he has just kept 1 going/moved etc. Cost us 10k which stung a bit as like Onedaaybebaby's it was a technical success (return of semen) but the numbers/quality etc never came good enough and even began declining after a year. Started IVF ICSI in December and after FIVE rounds and a miscarriage (and another near year of my life down) I am now 8 weeks pregnant 🎉 I never thought our journey would be this long and heartbreaking, after reading some of the USA threads I was waiting to post our success after just weeks. I wish someone had of told me our serious chances but either way I was impatient and determined to be the 'lucky' case. I don't regret the VR, it made the ivf journey much simpler, We still aren't out of the woods but with constant morning sickness and huge boobs I'm taking them as great signs and have never been happier as right now. Maybe to want and wait for something so desperately has made it all the more sweeter?
Again, good luck xx
Thanks for the responses! And congratulations StillHopeful, so exciting!! I'm very envious.
The USA posts were confusing me. They start trying so soon! And some of them said they got a bfp within weeks!! I was expecting to wait the four weeks like onedaymaybebaby. Metrocentre said three months before ttc but I think that was their own recommendation. I think our urologist had different advice but we'll double check at our appointment this week.
I'll keep you posted!
I think stats suggest on average 1-1.5 years from time of VR until pregnancy but everyone is different! I think we may have sperm antibodies which may have either happened at the time of reversal or even at the initatial vasectomy! We tried to test for antibodies but there weren't able to on the day, that was at our last analysis which showed a further decline grrr! Really hope you have a positive experience with your path surfergal-we sure need it in here lol!
