R' Moshe Feinstein zatzal writes that a vasectomy renders a man a p'tzua daka and he could no longer get married nor have relations with his wife. However, a vasectomy can be surgically reversed, and if the procedure is successful he would no longer be a p'tzua daka.

Since this is a very serious and sensitive topic, one should consult personally with a qualified and experienced Rav before taking any actions in this issue.
