A 42-year-old member asked:

Is imperforate anus the same as male infertility?

No: imperforate anus is a ciongenital anomaly where the anus is incompletely formed or not present at all. it is corrected by a series of operations in the first year of life. it should have little or no bearing on male fertility if all reproductive structures were protected during the surgeries.

Odd question: Imperforate anus= your butt hole didn't form.Male infertility=one of many parts of the male reproductive system doesn't work right. The butt hole has nothing to do with male fertility.
