<div style="font-style:italic;">There are plenty of other reasons for the nipple pain though.<br><br>
Bad latch<br>
Disruptive nursing<br>
Yeast<br>
On and off while pulling<br><br>
Etc.. I had nipple pain now and then during my daughters toddlerhood and it wasn't from pregnancy. I would test to make sure and have your hubby go get his spermies tested.</div>

He has been somewhat disrupted & he's not feeling well so he's been pulling on and off.

Well you most certainly *could be* pregnant. I would send DH back immediately to make sure that there is ZERO sperm in his semen. Then & only then will you know that the V was succesful.

They do the follow up tests for this very reason. You *could* be pregnant. I would definitely send dp in for the test. And, I would go pick up a few HPTs. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">

Your husband really needs to go in and get tested. Failed vasectomies are not common but they absolutely do happen. Usually they catch the failed ones when they retest and take care of it for free. If your husband never tested he could very well be fertile.

DH appeared to congenitally only have one vas deferens when he had his done a couple of years ago. The urologist said he'd only ever seen it happen a couple of times in his entire career, but that it can happen.<br><br>
He also started a vasectomy on a man who ended up congenitally having NO vas deferens....but the man had three children. He recommended the man find a counselor and/or attorney rather than a urologist. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Remember that, even when conditions are "perfect" for conception (both partners of normal or better fertility, ideal timing of intercourse) conception doesn't always happen. Don't panic yet- you could have thrush, and/or the flu and/or your child could be "nursing funny" due to teething or illness. You could also have "hormonal weirdness of unknown origin"- ie hormones could be causing your discomfort even if you're not pregnant and even if this has never happened premenstrually before. Our bodies change as we get older.<br><br>
Now, if your DH had a vasectomy, and never had his sperm checked, there's no way of knowing if he was EVER infertile from the surgury. A year later makes no difference- if it didn't work initially, it will continue to not work (or rather, the reproductive system will continue to work <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">) a year later.

Yes but how long after the V did you end up pregnant? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I'm actually not panicking yet. I'm hoping the pain while nursing is due to the fact ds is teething. *fingers crossed*!!!

See, in our case conception DOES always happen! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>
We've had unprotected sex 4 times during ovulation and I've gotten pregnant every single time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes">

<div style="font-style:italic;">I can't really reassure you about the V but I can say that I was *sure* that I was pregnant a few months ago - IUD be damned and it turns out I wasn't. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="carrot"> I had all the symptoms and DH swore I had the <b>"pregnant smell"</b> but I tested and it turned out my hormones were just wonky.</div>

I just wanted to say that I have soreness when I have yeast. So perhaps that is just it.<br><br>
But then again...

At this point I don't know which I'd rather have... yeast or another baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Ok, joking, but I did have very resistant thrush for 8 months with ds so I pray that is not it!

Couple years... but her dad might have been lying about the whole thing. It wouldn't totally surprise me.<br><br>

If he brings in his sample, he'll know in about 2 days if he's 'clean'. That's about how long it took to get the 'you're shooting blanks' call from the doc. If he brings in a sample Monday, you'll get the results on Wed/Thurs, which is still before your period is due. If he's 'clean' you can relax and assume you're just getting sick. If he's not, well, you have a few days to get used to the positive POAS you may be getting.

Very possible - you don't know if the vasectomy worked, and you've been having sex for a year. Even if you only had 5% odds of getting pregnant, that's a lot of trying.<br><br>
They become more effective with time, no less, because the backed up sperm cause antisperm antibodies to form. That's why reversals don't work if the vasectomy was done a long time ago.

Ever since my second was born and I got AF back, my nipples get sore just before and during my period. I also get sore breasts. You could be pregnant, or it could be AF <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> . I hope what you wish for comes to be.

Send your DH in straight away to make sure it worked. I can't believe he skipped BOTH chances to make sure it was a success! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh"> Failed vasectomies are really common!
