Alf -- i haven't had an orgasm in more than a year so i don't know what to expect. actually i'd be pretty amazed that a prostrate gland that has been carpet bombed by BT and IGRT could still produce semen.
If your entire prostate gland was radiated I believe it would be something of a miracle if you could have an ejaculation and produce viable sperm after BT and IGRT. I asked my oncologist what a prostate looked like after BT and IMRT and he replied, like a dried up prune.
So frankly I think the last thing you and your wife need to worry about
is birth control.
