Dear Granny in the wings!!
There are basically two options in your daughter and her husband trying to achieve a pregnancy. The first one is a reversal of vasectomy. This procedure is highly dependent on the length of time the vasectomy had been done, the presence of anti-sperm antibodies, and the recanalisation of the tubes and the skill of the urologist performing the procedure. These procedures do not always have a very good chance of successful reversal, but may but worthwhile trying it. Their best option would really be In-vitro fertilization a procedure called ICSI. Sperms are obtained directly from a testis biopsy. Her chances of achieving a pregnancy would be in the region of around 40% per cycle.
