Assuming there are no complications, I imagine the body just starts making more...

Adult human males produce sperm on a continuous basis in the testes. There is a temporary store for sperm in the epididymus, which also allows the sperm to mature over a period of 2-3 months.

When the temporary store is exhausted, sperm count drops and fertility is reduced. You must wait until more sperm matures.

Semen consists of other fluids produced by a variety of glands, including the prostate and seminal vesicles.

The rate of semen production is affected by a number of factors including age, hormones, sexual activity and stress.  In many species semen production is highly seasonal.

For many species, it is a case of "wait until next year".
