In brief: Yes

If you don't ejaculate after a turp, you are still making ejaculate- it is just going "retrograde" into your bladder.
A fertility expert can help extract the sperm so you can use it.

In brief: Usually, yes

Although erectile dysfunction is a possible side effect of the surgery, sperm can still be obtained via another method to fertilize your partner's egg.
