Kenyan man who underwent vasectomy finds out his wife is pregnant
A Kenyan man, Medgclay is shocked and in disbelief after his 33-year-old wife, Beryl got pregnant despite having undergone a vasectomy.
A vasectomy is a surgical procedure of cutting or sealing the tubes that carry a man’s spermatozoa to permanently prevent him from fertilizating a woman.
The 36-year-old Kakamega native said he had decided to undergo the procedure after they had three children and did not want more.
In a trending video, the father-of-three said the procedure was done in July 12, 2022, and was told he will be safe after about two months.
“I felt like we have always left family planning to women and so after we got three children I wanted to take the responsibility and go through the procedure myself,” Medgclay explained.
However, the family recently discovered that his wife had gotten pregnant and the doctor told them that there were possibilities semen had remained within the pipes or the procedure failed.
Medgclay said; “We decided to have the procedure as it last and is very efficient.
“In November, my wife’s periods were late, and in December, we realised she was pregnant, this is something we did not plan as she had given birth through CS the same year”
“When I was told that I should wait before vasectomy is effective, my wife used daily pills as contraceptive.
“It was such a stressful time for us because my wife had undergone two caesarean sections prior to that.
“We were informed that this happens when there are some sperms left in the ducts or just a failure of the whole procedure”.
“He told me “You will need to continue to use other birth control methods until your semen sample comes back completely sperm-free and you get the okay. This usually takes about two months or 20 ejaculations.”
