Your husband had a vasectomy 1 year ago you are leaking colostrum and on your period with a lot of cramping what should you expect or can you still get pregnant?

Hello. Most vasectomys these days work and stop the man from being fertile, but there is occurances where the man continues to release sperm spontaneously and this causes unexpected pregnancies. Leaking colostrum is a indication of pregnancy but this usually happens when your 3-4 months pregnant. Most women realise their pregnant this far along but some women don't. Especially if you don't expect to be pregnant. Leaking colostrum is also caused by too much progesterone (female hormone) and this also causes leaking breasts similar to pregnancy. If its caused by progesterone, it isn't pregnancy related hun. I would see your doctor for a blood test. Good luck and please recommend me if I've helped you. :-)
