How much is pregnancy likely after vasectomy?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 09/06/2018

The likelihood of pregnancy in a couple whose man has had a vasectomy is virtually zero. There is a possibility that the tubes may recanalize on their own, but this occurs rarely and, moreover, with current surgical methods it is very rare.

It is important to remember that pregnancy can occur in the first few months after a vasectomy, so it is recommended that an additional method of contraception be used.
