I have been trying to find info on how likely it is to become pregnant shortly after a vasectomy. My husband had one on 11/23/10 and has not gone back yet for the semen analysis. Any info would be appreciated~

If he hasn't done the post-operative masturbation / sex with protection for the prescribed number/length of time, it's extremely possible. There are plenty of post-V babies around to attest to that.

If you're ovulating, then your chances of conceiving is very high.  I've seen the recommendation to use barrier type protection for up to 6 months after a vasectomy.

Thanks for the replies! I ovulated about 3 1/2 weeks or so post-op and we were having unprotected s*x. My husband wouldn't care if we had baby #5, but he says he is done, thus the vas. I was  really wanting to try and find out stats on baby chances within the first few weeks post-op, but I am guessing I am out of luck. These next few days are going to be the longest ever! I just keep praying that I will be blessed with one more.
