Can sperm be retrieved from a man once he has had a vasectomy and used for artificial insemination?

Yes, a man can. My husband had a vasectomy 7 years before I met him and we now have a four year old and we're trying for another. It just means the doctor uses a needle into the testicles and they take sperm from further up, it is a whole lot cheaper and easier than a reversal. You just go see your local IVF unit or GP.

They either have to reverse it, or go in to his testicles with a needle and remove the sperm that way.

Note: when considering the cost of each proceedure, remember that if you choose IVF, you pay to have the sperm harvested and for each attempted fertilization.

Artificial insemination is when you go to a clinic and they insert sperm into the vagina in order for you to get pregnant.

No, the sperm is tested and the procedure is sterile.
