Do men still produce sperm even after a vasectomy?

Do men still produce sperm even after a vasectomy they had 20 years ago?

Not if done correctly; since it is usually the reason for having the procedure.

Of course they do. It was a vasectomy, not a castration, lol.

Sperm is still produced, it's just not supposed to be able to make it through when the guy ejaculates.

The only reason I ask is I want to have a baby with my partner, and use his sperm via articial insemination. I guess I just want to know whether it is possible.

Re: Do men still produce sperm even after a vasectomy?

There are ways of removing the sperm without a vasectomy reversal. A web search of sperm retrieval should bring up two. One is called micro epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA), and the other is called percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA, or fine needle aspiration). You need to talk to a doctor to see what could work. Costs may be high.

as long as you have testicals you will produce sperm(as long as your testies are in good health). They simply cut the tubes that transfer the sperm into your ejaculation, they dont somehow stop the sperm being produced.
