User :   To start my husband had a vasectomy in August of 08. We have four children the last being born in Dec. of 08. My problem is that for the first time since my last child was born my period is two weeks late and now my breasts aren't only sore they are leaking (sometimes heavily) over the last few days. Pregnancy doesn't seem like a suitable answer considering the vasectomy as well as the fact that the last time we were intimate was the middle of June (since he was sent overseas) and I had a normal period in July. What could the problem be? Thank you so much for your time!
Doctor :   hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   Dr. XXXXXXXX here. please let me read what you have typed.
Doctor :   sometimes vasectomy can get recanalized, resulting in pregnancy
User :   I understand that. So to you that would be the most reasonable answer to this?
Doctor :   do you have any other symptoms suggesting pregnancy like nausea, bloating, headache, back pain, abnormal discharge, frequent urination, increased tiredness, hunger and sleep?
Doctor :   was the period in July completely normal? or dis you have less cramps and/or less bleeding? or altered bleeding?
User :   some symptoms not too noticeable. Normal bleeding MUCH less cramps.
Doctor :   then it could be a possibility that you are pregnant
Doctor :   get your blood beta HCG levels tested along with an ultrasound scan to confirm your pregnancy
User :   Ok, well thank you for help I have not taken a test because it didn't seem like it was possible.
User :   I will though thank you.
Doctor :   ok. sometimes urine pregnancy tests can show false negative results
Doctor :   go ahead with blood beta HCG test
User :   Ok I will.
User :   Ok I will.
Doctor :   is there anything else I can help you with?
User :   No thank you thats all.
Doctor :   thanks for consulting me. bye for now.
