DON'T DO IT: JUST SEE A DOCTOR , UROLOGIST OR ENDOCRINOLOGIST BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

Here's some...: Testicular atrophy after healed orchitis could not be restored, but the remaining normal one will take over to compensate the lost function of the infected. So, before jump, seek professional evaluation and counseling timely. Such work can be done easily.
