Normally, during ejaculation, the muscles that contract and push the sperm out of the penis. However, in men undergoing vastectomy, only fluid from the prostate gland and semen is produced by the gland of the semen bag (seminal vesicles).
During this time, the vasectomy effect that is often feared is causing men to experience impotence, namely the inability to achieve an erection during sex. However, reported from Healthline, vasectomy will not affect male sexual ability.

This procedure does not change the appearance of the penis, taste, and the amount of semen released after surgery. Then, the surgical process does not approach the nerve responsible for erection, climax, or orgasm. Libido is also safe because the hormone testosterone which functions as a driver for sexual intercourse is not affected by vastectomy.
This is supported by a study reported by Men’s Health. Four out of ten men in the survey said that their sex lives increased after a vasectomy. Then, 12.4 percent of them reported that they actually had sex more often after a vasectomy.
A study at Stanford found that men with a vasectomy were intimate 5.9 times per month compared to men who did not undergo the procedure, which was 4.9 times per month. This is because couples who do not undergo vastectomy tend to think twice about having sex so there is no unplanned pregnancy.

Therefore, men with a vasectomy should still use condoms as your best protection from the disease.
