Dear Lady

Certainly the sperm aspiration technique is a more effective option bearing in mind your age and the likelihood of natural conception after vasectomy reversal being extremely low. However the treatment option if not AI but would require IVF/ICSI, which has a significant cost implication. However if there are no gynaecological problems then the ICSI could be able to be accomplished for a reasonable fee and I would refer you to the BioART website for a special promotion.
