We waited till the sample came back all clear. It was only about 6 weeks after the procedure as dh crammed in his required number of "clear outs" to hurry it along lol. Didn't know about the surrounding tissue thing though, we were just told if he cleared the tubes a certain number of times it would be fine.

Just adding I wouldn't be risking it unless the sperm count was zero -
For us another baby was just not a risk we could take. I haven't heard of many having two failed samples, kost of our friends have either never gone back or had a zero result. Hope the next one is clear for you guys!
On a side note I watched the procedure, it is totally fascinating - bit at the same time hard to imagine how it fails as they are tiny tubes, totally cut apart, with one end sealed by burning. It's amazing that the body's desire to reproduce can some times manage to overcome all that and find a way!!

My DH is in his early fourties and believe it not he too was questioned quite heavily as to why he wanted the Snip. The Doctor did say to him if he was under 30 years of age they would counsel him, as under 30 they think your circumstances *may* change etc.
We have 4 kids.

My DF was 33 and I was 29, 3 kiddies here and 1 termination. Like you I struggle with lots of different contraceptions, if you are having lots of trouble convincing a doctor DF said once he told him about the recent termination it *sealed the deal* :/

DH had no issues getting it done, just a "how old are you/how many kids" and my opinion was never considered by the Doctor, DH went alone. However I know some couples where the wife has had to give written consent (which I find incredibly wrong, but that's another thread!).

Thanks for asking your DH, hopefully we'll get the 'all clear' call/email after this last test.

ETA: Yes, I have to agree I think it would have been a bit wrong of the Surgeon to ask for my 'permission' so to speak, as you would have hoped that that discussion would have taken place between the couples 'before' the man goes in for the Op.
