    Hello, having a vasectomy done does not imply virility.. meaning it does not stop sperm production, it may only reduce the sperm producing capacity of the testes. After vasectomy, sperm cells cannot pass from the testes to the exterior because the vas deferens which serves as conduit has being severed.. Hence its literally not possible to get live sperms for IVF after the procedure.. see ur gynecologist for more enlightenment.. take care

    hi, yes please as i said earlier he can still produce live sperms dat can b used for IVF.. only he has to undergo either of two procedures.. one is vasectomy reversal which involves joining the cut ends if the vas deferens.. the second is sperm aspiration(from the testicles) before IVF. I hope i answered ur question. if however u nid more clarification you should see a urologist.. take care
