What can my husband do to be more fertile if he had a vasectomy 13 years ago and the doctor said there is only a 5 percent chance of us getting pregnant?

If the vasectomy was done properly, there should not even be a 5% chance of getting pregnant, as this procedure is the most effective way of preventing pregnancy short of a hysterectomy or abstinence. The best thing to do is to have your husband see his physician and have a semenalysis performed, where they can determine whether or not he has any sperm in his ejaculate. Often after a vasectomy, the body recognizes sperm as a foreign substance and "attacks" it with antibodies; this is why vasectomy reversals don't work a good deal of the time.

No not if the vasectomy was done right or if he didn't really have it. There are only three answers here. The vasectomy was done correctly and you can't get pregnant. He didn't do the vasectomy and lied about it. Or you had sex with another man. Otherwise, you can't get pregnant. A vasectomy can only be reversed through another surgery.
