Pregnant After Vasectomy

For all you ladies out there I want to give you hope. I married my husband 6 years ago. He was married previously and was convinced that the best thing was for him to get a vasectomy after his first son. He was only 27 and didnt want to do it. A little while after we got married we started talking about reversing it so that we could have children. I had one son from a previous marriage but had always wanted more. It was a costly procedure and we soon ended up fighting a dirty custody battle of his son so we didnt have the means. I prayed so hard that God would bring us a baby. I knew I was obviously fertile because I got pregnant when my first husband and I were together only once. Yes I know they tell you it only takes one time but if you read about conception you have a limited window so getting pregnant is a miracle. Well I started nursing school about 2 years into our marriage. He and I finally sat down and said you know its better if we dont have children. We have such flexibility. We can give my oldest son to my ex on weekends and go and have fun together. I had even received a word from a lady at church, she said God will bless you with many children. I was like um okay. I will probably end up being a foster parent and adopt some later. Well shortly after my husband and I had that talk about being happy with the children we had. I begin feeling sick. My b___sts were tender. I told him I am 11 days late I think I am pregnant. He was like no your not. So I took the test. It came out positive. He didnt believe it. So he sent me to the health department. Again a positive test. We both just laughed and still couldnt believe it. It was so surreal. I was suppose to be starting nursing school in the fall. I had just finished all my pre-req so I was just in disbelief. I couldnt believe it. We went to our first appt with the ob/gyn. We got our first ultrasound to find out if there was actually a baby and determine a due date. For the first time we saw that little bean of a baby. Swimming around. Looking absolutely perfect. Our due date was December 17. We asked the doctors several times how it was possible. They gave us that look like yeah right its his....she must be cheating on him. No one believed us. But birth day came around and that perfect baby was born. He was truly a blessing from God. God is the only way I can explain how after nearly 11 years of him having a vasectomy that we conceived a child. Now we are trying to conceive another. My miracle baby will be 3 this November. We have bought ovulation tests and are hoping for another. If it doesnt work then we will seek information from fertility doctors. But I still think about that word the woman gave me, that God would bless me with many children. With God all things are possible.

My fiance had his vasectomy about 3 1/2 years ago after his second son was born. When we got together we discussed getting it reversed because I don't have any children of my own and we both wanted one. The doctors have told me it wouldn't be a good idea if I got pregnant so my fiance decided he didn't want to risk it. We have decided to go into the foster system and are very happy with that decision; However, it has been 40+ days since my last monthly present and I'm hoping with everything I have that I am. So scared to take the test.

This raised my faith level to just trust God! as I was reading this I had tears coming down my face and my husband asked me so I read your story to him, he got so happy. We found a doctor in OK that does the reversal procedure for a ministry to help people like us, he charges 1700.00 but because hes out of state it would also be so much more. We don't have the finances right now. My prayer has been truly to release it and lay this desire down to enjoy the time we have together and not miss out on these momments that we may never get back....because like you I also have been told that I was going to have many children and I thought the same thing to foster or adopt how would this be possible...God gave me a husband that cant produce...for a while I was a little angry about it...but I walked throught that and now I am at that place of letting it go and not allowing to consume me like it has. We both have had dreams and pictures of this little boy and our descriptions are the same...so I will just belileve God and wait. Please keep in touch I would love to hear more on what happens.

Well... well.... well..... I can not believe I am posting this! :-) My Hubby had a vasectomy well before him and I meet. We discussed getting a reversal if we decided to have children. We love being married and continue to strive to keep God first. We celebrate our marriage! I also know that I have a cyst on my ovaries and this may be my bodies way of hadeling it. I had a small sample pd in November, but we were very very SUPER active that month. I a__sumed my body was trying to recover. The month of December came and went without any signs of a pd. I have taken a test alone and it came up negative. I have taken a test with him watching me and it came up negative. I have been completly exhausted some night and have become a vegatable lover almost over night. Some days I feel extra bloated. I am getting my enery back! Today we go to the doctors to see what is going on. We wanted a child when we got a larger home, but...All I know is Gods time is perfect timing.. so I will keep my mind on him and try to restrain from anything other then perfect peace.

Im glad i found this site. My husband had a vasectomy 5 weeks ago sept 12th 2012. We have 4 beautiful kids ages 10,6,4,2. We decided together that a vasectomy is probably best. I wanted more children and have struggled for the last yr about what to do. So we figured getting the vasectomy done would help me get over wanting another baby. In fact it's made it 100 times worse.. dont get me wrong im so thankful for the 4 blessings God has given us but i cant help but feel so terribly sad about not being able to carry another life into this world.I listened to family too much and almost felt pressured into the decision I know we made our decision to quick hubby is only 32 and im only 29. We tried this past month and i seemed to have every symptom under the sun even threw up 2 times. but my period showed up yesterday which was the day day i was gonna test.. I know there is a short window of time following a vasectomy. Im very fertile and always get pregnant first month trying. Im trying not to loose hope but i was told usually only 20 ejaculations after vasectomy and male is usually sterile. its definately been more then that because we were acttivly trying. i called a urologist in my area (OTTAWA[CANADA) today and just awaiting a return phone call to see about vasectomy reversal, but i heard it's very expensive and OHIP or insurance wont help pay..guess ill wait and see. best wishes to everyone on here trying to conceive after vasectomy.

Has anybody had success? My husband had a vesectomy right after his son was born in 1998. We've been married 5 years and have 2 foster babies (since we couldn't have our own...) but now I'm late and have tons of symptoms that make me wonder. I'm 37 and he's 52 but I've heard it definitely can happen especially after almost 17 years. 

Hoping and praying!!!

This seems to be an old board, not sure if anyone checks it now, but I'm in a wait period right now trying to figure out if I'm experiencing perimenopause or am pregnant. If I'm pregnant again, it's a vasectomy baby! We have two wonderful kids, a girl age 8, and our boy is 7. Shortly after our son was born, my husband got a vasectomy. I secretly wanted a 3rd, but agreed that with two kids so close together, and the fact we were blessed with one of each, it was a good time to shut the babymaking operations down. And I've been fine with that idea, things are busy but FUN with our kids, and it's getting easier now that they're in school. But skip ahead to last Wednesday and I had a hot flash. The last 3 times I had one of those, I was pregnant each time (the first pregnancy was a BO m/c). If I'm right about the date of my last period, I had the hot flash right at the point that would have implanted had I got pregnant that cycle. My boobs are sooo sore now, too, and I'm a few days late. I tested like the day before AF was due, and it was negative, but now I'm 3 days late, and still nothing. Confusing! So now I'm wondering if at age 41, my secret dream of having a 3rd kiddo is coming true, and beating the 1 in 1000 odds. But the odds that this is perimenopause playing games with me is also very likely! I used to haunt this site when I was going through fertility issues, wishing so hard for a baby, so either way I know I'm blessed to have the 2 healthy kids that I do have, but I'd be beyond thrilled if I got a 3rd miracle out of this deal! But if it's perimenopause, well, that's okay too. Still, I'm enjoying the fantasy that I'm pregnant now with a post-vasectomy miracle baby!
