Okay, I’m freaking out a little here and I guess I’m really just wanting someone to come along and tell me I’m worrying for nothing, but here it is: I finished breast feeding in late June/early July and didn’t get my period back until mid September and it was quite heavy then. I have had nothing since then and I’m now starting to feel tired, low appetite, the odd ache or pain, which may not sound like a lot but that was all I got with my last pregnancy. I’ve read a little about how a vasectomy can heal itself, etc. however, hubby did go back and get tested a few months ago. I am just wanting to know what others have experienced. I am too scared to even do a pregnancy test at this stage in case I am just being paranoid because I do at times suffer from anaemia which could explain tiredness and maybe my period is just irregular at the moment because it is just starting to come back.

  • Very very slim!! Like .01%

  • If your husband has had a follow up test and the results were that it was effective then the chance of falling pregnant is very very very low. But the only birth control that is 100% is abstinence.

  • Thanks guys, I seem to be feeling better now, so maybe I was a little run down. However, still no period, but they are probably just irregular coming back after breast feeding :).

  • Worry isn’t good, so go get yourself checked out to find what explains your symptoms and start doing something to feel ok again.

  • Quite low I would imagine – you could just be really run down! Do a quick test and get it out of your mind,and then work on what it could be. a

  • Some people’s periods are all over the place when the do come back. If you’re worried go and see a doctor and/or do a home pregnancy test.
