Brief Answer:
There is no chance of pregnancy .

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query .

Your semen analysis after vasectomy has detected presence of less than one sperm which could be left over in Vas Difference..With this analysis there does not seem any possibility of pregnancy with unprotected sex .

You may repeat semen Analysis after two weeks as two consecutive semen reports are supposed to be mandatory to make authentic and precise comments about success of surgery .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
