I think there's a very slight chance right after, and if the surgery wasn't completed correctly.

From Webmd:

"How Well It Works
Vasectomy is a very effective (99.85%) birth control method. Only 1 to 2 women out of 1,000 will have an unplanned pregnancy in the first year after their partners have had a vasectomy.3

Risk of failure
Pregnancy may occur after vasectomy because of:

Failure to use another birth control method until the sperm count is confirmed to be zero. It usually takes 10 to 20 ejaculations to completely clear sperm from the semen.
Spontaneous reconnection of a vas deferens or an opening in one end that allows sperm to mix with the semen again. This is very rare."

i have a couple friends that got pg by their husband after so many years i think it was like 7 years later after the surgery. Do you want to get pg after him having one? If not use protection still

If the vasectomy is done correctly and enough of the Vas deferens is removed then sterility is virtually assured and irreversible. HOWEVER, the Vas can repair itself in the rare case and the testes continue to produce sperm though in a relatively low amount. The proceedure can be reversed if there is enough of the tube left to stretch and reconnect but this is rare unless you plan it that way.
Generally once you are 'shooting blanks' you are assured that you will not be able to father a child. It's a simple test to check for viable sperm at any rate and my doctor performs this test for Sigel once a year, if he requests it.
After 14 years he is still effectively sterile.

My husband and a co-worker of mine had their vasectomies on the same day at the same doctors office, back to back appointments. Three years later, my co-worker called me to tell me that he and his wife nearly got a divorce due to her becoming pregnant. Well, even though he had been checked after the surgery and he'd got the all-clear from the doc, the vas did somehow repair itself. He demanded a DNA test to confirm what his wife claimed...and yes that child is his. They have since, had at least one more child. That was 13 years ago. My husband is sterile, my co-worker -- not so much apparently.

The chance is less than 1 %.

This is true. Follow the advice of your doctor.

Rarely does it happen, but it happens. I think the same if a woman gets her tubes tied? Still a chance?

I voted no, because I don't really think you can. Then again I don't know much about this topic.

I have heard of it happening because it was performed improperly, or the sex was consummated too soon (within the first 6 weeks after operation). Once the second check is performed (for sperm), and it returns negative, the man is generally sterile.
On the off chance that the operation was performed poorly, or you are concerned taht there might be an issue with it, have it rechecked every so often. I had mine in 1973, about a year after my youngest was born, and have had no issues with it since. It can take the worry out of being close, and I have never even considered having it checked again.
