Could I be pregnant or just wishful thinking?

Hello! I am 37 years old and my husband had a vasectomy 11 years ago after our youngest was born, even though I did not want him to do it because I wanted a 4th child. Over the years, my kids and I have begged him to get it reversed since they too would love to have a baby brother or sister. After ovulating this month, my breasts are extremely sore and sensitive. So much that I can't even let my husband touch them. The only time they have ever been this sore was when I was pregnant. I also have been very tired lately. My period isn't due for 4 more days. And usually my breasts get sore a day or two before my period, never a day or two after ovulation, and never this bad. Is it all in my head and just wishful thinking, or is there a slight chance that I could be pregnant? I've read stories of this happening so I know it's possible, although it's rare. I just wondered what the odds were of it happenong. I guess I'll know in about 4 days, but until then, my mind will be going nuts lol!

Hi Anon,

Thank you for reaching out to EmpowHER with your question! You're right, even though it is very rare to get pregnant after your husband has a vasectomy, it is not completely impossible. There have been many stories where men get vasectomies and women get pregnant. However, it is rare.

The only true way to know if you are pregnant is by taking a pregnancy test or by waiting to see if your menstrual cycle comes. I'm sorry I can not be more of a help here, but at this point all you really can do is wait the 4 days. If your period does not come then, I would take a pregnancy test to be completely sure.

Please keep us updated! Wishing you the best as you are hoping for another baby. Keep me posted and let me know if you have any other questions. :)
