NORMALLY when you hear your wife is pregnant there are celebrations all around, however for one bloke it caused more concern than anything else.
His wife had recently revealed to him that she was pregnant with the couple's third child – but confusion hit the fan as he had a vasectomy two years ago.
The bloke, who is anonymous, took to the online forum Reddit to ask for some advice after finding out the news.
The husband wrote: “My wife just found out she's pregnant with our third child.
“I had a vasectomy two years ago. How likely is this child to be mine or could she have had an additional affair?
“After how long we have been together and how well we communicate I honestly don't believe she would have cheated.”

“However with having a vasectomy I'm not entirely sure of how accurate the possibilities are still.
“I have been reading mixed reviews online about this and quite frankly I just feel torn at this moment on what to take in next. Please help.”
Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilisation or permanent contraception, according to the NHS website.
During the procedure, the male vasa deferentia are cut and tied or sealed so as to prevent sperm from entering into the urethra and thereby prevent fertilisation of a female through sexual intercourse
Thousands of people responded to the post, with some offering up advice, with the majority urging the husband to get his sperm count checked out before throwing accusations at his wife.
Doctors also left their thoughts on the thread – with many saying they’ve seen patients whose vasectomies failed.

One person wrote: “I’m a physician and had a patient whose wife conceived after a vasectomy.
“He initially had sperm count of zero, but his vas deferens reconnected and upon testing, he would found to have viable sperm. This is extremely rare, but possible.

“You need to go to a physician to see if you have viable sperm in your ejaculate before jumping to conclusions.”
Another agreed by saying: “Physician here too and I agree with everything here.
“Stay calm and schedule an appointment. Now is fact collection time.”
However, others urged the bloke to get his children DNA tested.
You said additional affair. If she’s done it once I wouldn't rule it out again
One wrote: “You said additional affair. If she’s done it once I wouldn't rule it out again.
“I’d defo get both your sperm and all of your children DNA tested.”
And a second said: “DNA – you need to be sure and have every right to be suspicious.”
After taking the advice into consideration, the husband admitted he doesn’t think his wife cheated.
He added: “I’ve seen quite a few sites saying that you do still have a small possibility and I want to give her the benefit of the doubt.
