Wife is tricked into thinking she’s infertile but discovers husband had a vasectomy

Wife desperately trying for a baby has 29 pregnancy tests and hormone injections before her ‘evil’ husband reveals he’s had a vasectomy

  • The woman was devastated to learn her husband had a vasectomy but never told her 
  • The woman spent three years trying fertility treatments and blamed herself 
  • The anonymous woman shared the story on Reddit asking if she should leave him

A woman who was desperate to have a baby was left devastated after she had 29 negative pregnancy tests before her husband revealed he’s had a vasectomy.

The anonymous woman blamed her Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) as she spent three years trying fertility treatments but was unsuccessful in having her dream family.

She gave her husband a choice between IVF and divorce and it was only then that he told her he’s had a vasectomy.

‘After three years of painful, invasive, and expensive fertility treatment, I find out my husband had a vasectomy before we met,’ she shared in a Reddit post.

‘He let me endure 29 negative pregnancy tests and numerous hormone injections and he never thought to tell me.’

Her husband got the procedure while he was married to his ex-wife because he was afraid she would fall pregnant and he wouldn’t be able to leave the relationship.

‘He also explained that he didn’t tell me because he loved me and was worried I would leave,’ the woman.

‘So I’ve laid out the options: he gets it reversed, he agrees to me using donor sperm or we get a divorce.

‘I love him. But I’m broken. And given his lies, I think we are better off not married. I could still get donor sperm and honestly, that might be for the best,’ she shared.

Reddit users criticised her husband and most encouraged the woman to leave him.

‘This guy is straight-up TRASH. Certified absolute garbage. How do you let someone you supposedly love go through all that?’ one person said.

Another user shared: ‘Good lord. I thought I’d seen some trash, but she’s married to a freaking landfill.’

‘I hope she leaves him. This is unbelievable. A lot of people I know with PCOS are already very stressed about their chances of being able to conceive and this a**hole made it worse for his wife,’ another person said.
