Is it possible to father a child post TURP surgery?

Hello ... I am a 56 Year Old Male I had a TURP procedure a few years ago. Before I went into the operating room, my urologist asked me for a final time .... are you sure you DO NOT want to have children down the road ? I said yes. I was fully aware of what he was asking. My question to you, is there a way or medical Procedure for my wife/girlfriend to get pregnant after a TURP ? Whether its Invetro or some other Medical Breakthrough. Just curious. Thanks, Greg

Having TURP may give you problems such erectile dysfunction, retrograde ejaculation or dry orgasms which may make it difficult for you to father a child. Of course, you can do it in vitro or there is a possibility of conceiving naturally.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
