Answer

A vasectomy is simply the cutting and tying back of the vasa deferentia. The procedure has a failure rate of around 0.1% to 0.2% for the first year. Assuming he and the partner are otherwise normal and do not use any contraception, there is an 85% probability of pregnancy during the same time. So there is roughly a 0.15% chance of pregnancy occurring (in the first year after vasectomy).

When the man has had a proper vasectomy it is impossible for him to father a child.

I mean if we're going to be purely analytical, a gay man will have hopefully a great relationship with another man, which doesn't result in children.

The options for a man who wants to avoid fathering a child are abstinence from vaginal sex, using codoms, withdrawal or coitus interruptus, and vasectomy. Abstinence is the most effective, followed by vasectomy, condoms, and withdrawal. In addition, a couple may use methods under the control of the female.

the same way a straight man can be a father, by either fathering a child biologically, or adopting.

You should not be able to get pregnant by a man who has had a vasectomy.

No probability. Neither parent has an "A" for the child to inherit to make an "AB".

By having sex with another man, or multiple men, that have not had a vasectomy.

You can get HIV from a man who had a vasectomy. Vasectomy only eliminates the sperm portion of semen. HIV is still present in the seminal fluid.

It is not risky, it is impossible. Men do not become pregnant. A man of that age is perfectly capable of fathering a child.

Women have their tubes tied which takes a bit more effort then for men to have a vasectomy, either way the end result is that no child results if either the woman or the man has this done to them.

Being Rh negative has NOTHING to do with fathering a child. Other factors such as sperm count or fecundity of the woman would one of the determining factors.

If the man is willing to he can have his vasectomy reversed. If not it looks like you will need to find a new man or donor sperm from a sperm bank.

A vasectomy is a operation to make the man sterile. You cannot get pregnant after that.

Vasectomy is a surgery to prevent a man from being able to get a woman pregnant.

A Vasectomy procedure will cost about $1,300 to any man not wanting to have children any longer if the procedure is done by the Houston Vasectomy Clinic.

There is approximately one chance in 50,000 that a man who has had a vasectomy can have sperm in his semen.

No, they usually cannot. Down syndrome usually causes the male to be infertile. Though there have been some cases of a man with DS fathering a child.

The chief thing that goes wrong is that the man is a little upset, as a vasectomy means he can't be the father.

Only if it didn't work. The whole purpose of a vasectomy is to not be able to impregnate someone.

User Avatar

Yes, it's called vasectomy.

As part of a paternity test it includes a probability value to determine the probability that the man in question is biological father or not. If the probability value is 99.99% and the mother, child and man in question have all been tested then the man is the father. If it is less than that then the man is not the father. It is impossible to get a probability value of 100% unless every man in the world were tested. As it stands a paternity test is as accurate as its probability value. Therefore a paternity test with a probability value of 99.99% has a 99.99% chance of being correct. A paternity test is very accurate and does a great job of showing a childs genetic parents. The test is 99.9% accurate.
