Any possibility of pregnancy after vasectomy?

I am having some pregnancy symptoms now for a week and my period is not due for another 9 to 12 days; I've had 3 other pregnancies with similar symptoms but the question here is that my husband had a vasectomy 5 years ago and that is the last thing on my mind; so I am not sure if it possible to get pregnant??

Hello and welcome,

It is sometimes possible for recanalization to occur after vasectomy and pregnancy may be possible. But it occurs during the initial months after vasectomy and rarely occurs so late. Also you are still in the ovulation phase, so pregnancy takes at least 5-6 weeks to give rise to symptoms.

The best way to know this is to get a semen analysis done for presence of sperms. If they are present then it indicates a failure.

So most likely these symptoms are due to gastric trouble and stomach upset. Try eating yogurt and clear soups and take B complex vitamins. If the symptoms do not improve with this, you may need to see a doctor.

Hope this satisfies your query.
