Vasectomy, Miscarriage, and Trying Not to Hope.
KP1985 posted:
Hi There,
My situation is weird, and hard to explain. But the short story is that My husband and I have three children, and in April found out we were expecting #4. We were nervous, but eventually very excited. Then we scheduled a vasectomy for my DH while we were in the US (we live out of the country). We were about 10 weeks along at that point, and a week after his surgery found out we were miscarrying. It has been just terrible.

And I know the odds are not really in our favor, but he had his surgery on May 2, and I was wondering if there was much of a chance of conceiving again at this point. I've had one normal period, and am in (what WebMD calls) my ovulation week now. I dont want to hope, and I REALLY don't want to get pregnant again just to miscarry... I just don't think I could take it.

Anyway, if anyone has expertise in this, please reply. Be kind, but please be honest.
