My partner is 40+ and had a vasectomy a few years ago. When we have sex he finishes but no ejaculate comes out. Is this normal?

My partner is 42 and had his vasectomy a few years ago. He doesn’t lack ejaculate every time we have sex, only every now and then. He tells me he has “finished” but I worry he hasn’t. He claims this is normal, but I haven’t found anything that backs his theory. It’s wearing on my mental health as I want him to be satisfied.

Some medicines such as Flomax will reduce the amount of fluid with ejaculation. A vasectomy will not do this. No ejaculate is not necessarily normal but it is seldom associated with any untoward medical issue.
