Can I have a child after vasectomy?

Vasectomy is a permanent male sterilization method, although it is reversible by surgery. Although the sperm cannot go outside in the ejaculate because the vas deferens is cut, there is spermatogenesis.

This means that men after vasectomy continue to produce spermatozoa in the testicles, even if there is azoospermia, that is, the absence of spermatozoa in the ejaculate. This is why performing a testicular biopsy could be a solution to try to become fathers after vasectomy.
