It sounds like the word "after" was left out after "child."
So that would work out as Blissful_maia said:
They already had three children (we assume) then they had a child after each failed vas. Two failed vas makes two kids, then one successful vas, making three vasectomies.
My dh had a V about 1.5 yrs ago. His first sample wasn't clean (in spite of his heroic efforts to "clear the pipes"), but his second was.
I read recently that the new recommendation is for men to get checked every three years. Even if the procedure is initially successful, those sneaky vas deferens can figure out a way to regrow sometimes. Dh's urologist claimed that because he cauterized the vas in addition to cutting them, that he is not at risk, but I am unwilling to take that chance.
The "test" merely involves looking at a slide of semen under a microscope. Swimmers are pretty easy to spot in a fresh sample! If you have any scientist geek friends you could check yourself.
You said you have only had a couple of PP afs, right? I had some really wierd cycles with lots of pg symptoms during the first few months it was back. I even used up all the pregnancy tests I had left from my TTC days. Hope it's just a false alarm!
Within 45 minutes??
Would the presence of dead sperm be just as convincing as the presence of live sperm?
Dh's "sample' was way more than 45 minutes old...it was like...3 hours old....
