Abstract A group of 29 re-anastomosed men were examined with respect to semen quality, anti-sperm antibody titres in serum and seminal plasma, presence of anti-sperm antibodies on sperm, and success rate in inducing pregnancy. Results indicated no association between pre-reversal serum anti-sperm antibody titres and post-reversal semen quality, but a pregnancy induction rate of zero was associated with serum anti-sperm antibody titres greater than 160. It is recommended that men considering reversal, with anti-sperm antibody titres of this level, should receive counselling about the possibility of postreversal infertility.
