Vasectomy is a simple surgical procedure that involves cutting the canal that carries sperm to the testicles. What happens if your partner gets pregnant after a vasectomy? Some men consider a paternity test because they believe their partners have been unfaithful. The urologist often mentions that the canal that is cut during the vasectomy may reattach, allowing sperm to pass into the semen. Alternatively, part of the canal may open up and allow sperm to pass through. It is best to do a SpermCheck vasectomy test two months after the vasectomy and again two months after the vasectomy test. The first test is done two months after the vasectomy and the second test four months after the vasectomy. This is the best way to ensure that the results are reliable.
Two negative results
When you buy a test, it is important to read the instructions carefully. Some men don’t read the instructions and make mistakes that end up getting their partners pregnant. When you take a test to see if the vasectomy was successful, you need to get two consecutive negative results. If the test you do at two months is negative but the test you do at four months is positive, you will have to buy another SpermCheck vasectomy test and repeat them in the same 2-4 month pattern, counting from the last test. If in the second set of tests you do not receive two consecutive negative results, you will need to contact your urologist because it is likely that the vasectomy was unsuccessful and you are fertile again. It is advisable to use a condom during this time until you can confirm with your urologist that everything is in order.
A yearly test for life
Professional urologists around the world recommend men who have had a vasectomy have an annual test to certify that they are still infertile. With the SpermCheck vasectomy test, you will receive two tests. Remember that you should always do one two months after the other and that both must be negative. Although it is not very common, some men have been known to become fertile again years after having a vasectomy. Current methods have reduced the incidence of these cases, but there is still a small percentage of chance. Annual testing will help you avoid unwanted pregnancies and is much cheaper and easier than starting the journey to parenthood all over again. It is advisable to contact your urologist if you have any doubts about the effectiveness of this type of test.
