Pregnant post vasectomy?

Anyone had this happen? I don't really know what is going on. My husband had a vasectomy almost 3 years ago. I didn't have a period last month, and a pink spotting for 2 days 10 days ago. I am very hormonal. I have 4 kids, and yes, the pregnancy signs are all there. HPT negative, but I read that it can take 14 days from implantation (Maybe that pink spotting was implantation???) SO, I was wondering what thoughts might be about this. Could it be something else??

  • my ex- sister in law was a post vasectomy baby. It turns out they had tied one of her dad's tubes twice. BUT that was a very long time ago, i'm sure they are much better at checking everything out now days.

  • It could be pre-menopause or other hormone variation.

  • To anon 8:03, My DH is going in for a vasectomy next month, and I specifically asked his doctor about this. He said that it generally takes 3 months for the tubes to clear out, and it is VERY important for him to have a sperm count done at the end of that 3 months. But after that the only thing that could make me pregnant by him again is if his tubes fused back together.

  • Have your hubby go to a urologist and get checked, that will tell you if he can or can't get you pregnant. Good luck.
