Is there a risk of pregnancy after vasectomy?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 09/01/2022

Vasectomy is one of the most effective contraceptive methods available. However, if unprotected sexual relations are maintained before having passed all the post-vasectomy controls, it is possible to become pregnant. In addition, there are cases of women who have become pregnant years after their partner's vasectomy, although it is highly improbable.
