Pregnancy after vasectomy

Vasectomies are considered to be one of the most effective procedures for permanently preventing pregnancy. They are considerably more effective than tubal ligation procedures, but still, are not 100% effective 100% of the time. The average chance of pregnancy occurring after a man has a vasectomy is somewhere between one half of a percent and one percent. That means that vasectomies are around 98-99.5% effective in preventing pregnancy from occurring.

What can cause pregnancy after vasectomy?

The most common cause of pregnancy after a vasectomy is when a pregnancy occurs very soon after the vasectomy is done. There is usually still a small amount of sperm in the semen for a few weeks after the vasectomy is done, so this is when pregnancies do occur most of the time. Sometimes, even when tests have been done that show that there is no sperm in the semen, a man can later become potent again, and pregnancy can occur. The chances of this happening however, are very low.

Pregnancy after tubal ligation

Tubal Ligation is in most cases, effective to permanently prevent pregnancy. However, it is not 100 percent effective, and it is a little less effective than vasectomy. The success rate for tubal ligation preventing pregnancy is somewhere around 96-98%. There is usually around a one to three percent chance that a woman will become pregnant after a tubal ligation. The studies show that within one year, around five in one thousand women will become pregnant, and within five years, around thirteen in one thousand women will become pregnant.

What can cause pregnancy after tubal ligation?

The main cause of pregnancies after tubal ligation is when the tubes become “untied”, or “grow” back together. Some tubal ligation procedures are performed improperly, and they do fail sometimes. Sometimes, in women who have a lot of scar tissue, it can be hard to properly perform the tubal ligation. Tubal ligation procedures that are done via the “clipping” method are also much more likely to fail than tubal ligations done using the burning method.

    Knowing that you’re just 19, there is still a good chance for you to get pregnant as long as you don’t experience any infertility issue. I do suggest that you already track your ovulation dates and start taking fertility pills to help increase your chances of getting pregnant as soon as your partner arrives. Aside from this, it is important that you avoid stress, quit unwanted habits, and eat a balanced diet for you to conceive soon.

    Since you have had your tubes tied and your husband has had a vasectomy, you may need to discuss with your fertility specialist about IVF or in vitro fertilization in which the ovum id fertilized outside the body and planted in your uterus.
