User avatar Hello,
You can have a test with a urologist to be sure you are still sterile. These tests should have been done a couple of times following the vasectomy. They are quite reliable. If you have insurance, find a provider in your panel under urology as a specialty. If you do not have insurance, you can ask your family practice doctor for a referral or just look in your telephone book or ask a local hospital for a referral.

Good luck.
