Can you ejaculate after a vasectomy?

May 18, 2023

Hey there, I’m Alex, the NP from Austin Urology Institute! If you’re considering getting a vasectomy in Austin or anywhere, you might be wondering what happens to your ejaculate afterward. Well, we’re here to clear that up for you!

Basically, a vasectomy is a type of birth control that involves cutting or blocking the tubes called vas deferens, which carry sperm from your testicles to your urethra. In our clinic, we use cutting, burning, and a suture tied around the vas. So, even though you’ll still be able to produce semen, your ejaculate won’t contain any sperm anymore.

That’s right—after a vasectomy, you won’t be able to conceive children the traditional way. However, it’s important to note that you’ll still be able to enjoy all the other aspects of sex, including orgasm and ejaculation.

Now, if you’re worried about what your semen will look and feel like after a vasectomy, don’t be! Your ejaculate might be a bit thinner or clearer than it used to be, but it should still look and feel pretty much the same.

So, there you have it—that’s what happens to your ejaculate after a vasectomy. If you have any other questions or concerns about this procedure, please reach out to us here at Austin Urology Institute.
