hi welcome to health care magic.it is possible only when operation fail.now you are at the age of menopause so periods may be irregular but you rule out your dout by urine pregnancy test.

Hello there..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
yes..it is possible if the tubes get re canalized...Did you miss your periods?Or u r having your problems with your periods?? Pregnancy can occur at any age if you are ovulating well..So please get a pregnancy test done and you could go ahead from there..
Hope this helps.

Hi my husband recently had a vasectomy and he was tested 2 months later and tested negative for sperm. I have since stopped using birth control (marvelon ). I have missed a period and am hoping its just due to going off my pill and my body readjusting. Whats your opinion o this ?

I had a vasectomy when I was 24 years old. I am now 50. I am married to another woman now and we would like to have a child together. The Doctor that did my vasectomy told me it was the non reversable kind meaning he tied a knot and used stiches not a clamp. Can this vasectomy be reversed? Do I still make sperm? Can this sperm be extracted and artifically implanted in my wife?
