Vasectomy Failures: Doctor ordered to pay child support after failed surgery
A vasectomy is a common and effective form of birth control. However, it is not 100% effective. In rare cases, a man can still become his partner pregnant after having a vasectomy.
There are a few reasons why a vasectomy might fail. One possibility is that the surgeon did not remove all of the sperm. Another possibility is that the vas deferens (the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the penis) reconnected.
If a man’s partner becomes pregnant after he has had a vasectomy, it is important to see a doctor to rule out any underlying medical conditions. The doctor may also recommend that the man have a sperm count to confirm that the vasectomy has failed.
If a vasectomy has failed, there are a few options available. One option is to have another vasectomy. Another option is to use another form of birth control, such as condoms or the pill.
It is important to talk to your doctor about the best option for you and your partner if a vasectomy has failed.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind about vasectomy failures:
- The risk of failure is very low, but it is not zero.
- The risk of failure is higher in men who are younger than 35 years old.
- The risk of failure is also higher in men who have had a vasectomy within the past year.
If you are considering a vasectomy, it is important to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits.
