Welcome and thank you for your question.

I am reviewing it now and will reply again in a moment.

Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 7 months ago.

Cancer treatment can interfere with ejaculation by damaging the nerves that control the prostate, seminal vesicles, and the opening to the bladder.

It can also stop semen from being made in the prostate and seminal vesicles, or it can cut off the path that semen normally takes out of the body. This causes lack of semen during ejaculation.

Over time, in some men, semen can increase to some extent. In most men however, there will be no semen ejaculated during orgasm.

I am sorry to tell you that there are no treatments for lack of semen after prostate cancer treatment.

I hope this helps.
