Pregnant after a Vasectomy?
Mon, 07-11-2011 - 8:43pm

My husband got a Vasectomy, cauterized and all December of 2008 and now Im a week late. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. I am really tired lately, and very crampy. I keep thinking Im going to start but nothing. I just dont know what to do. Is it possible to get pregnant after having that type of vasectomy?

Vasectomies do fail sometimes, but it is rare. Did you husband have a semen analysis done to be sure that the vasectomy was successful back in 2008? There are many reasons for being late and some woman even have a month without a period sometimes. Have you had any stress lately or major changes in your life lately? Those things could cause your cycles to be out of whack. I hope it all works out for you.
