Dear Johnny

You have not posted any questions so I am not sure what you need to enquire about. If you need to find out how sperm is retrieved after a vasectomy then 2 methods can be used, firstly sperm may be retrieved form either a testicular or epididymal aspiration or alternatively can also be retrieved more effectively with a testis biopsy. This testicular tissue is then frozen and used in an in-vitro fertilisation [IVF] combined with an intracytoplasmic sperm injection [ICSI] cycle.
