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.

I'm 30 years old, I am in good health, I had a vasectomy a week ago. Since then my scrotum has been extremely relaxed, or in other words "saggy balls". They have yet to constrict, which has made recovery even more uncomfortable. Is this something to be cocerned about, is this normal?
