Pregnant after permanent birthcontrol

who here has become pregnant after either a tubal or their partner's having a vasectomy? How long had it been after the surery that you became pregnant. When did you start to think you might be?

  • I don't know about a vasectomy but for a woman to get her tubes tied (only tied and not cut, burned and tied) it is a very high chance of her becoming pregnant again. My Aunt got pregnant appr. 4 years after getting her tubes tied.

  • I've heard of several women getting pregnant after the surgery. It's more common than most people realize.
