Can Retractile Testicles Cause Infertility
My boyfriend fell on his bike at a young age and hit his testicles so hard that he said he urinated blood. Could this cause infertility?
Possibly ...: Testicular injuries may or may not cause fertility problems in later life. If you're not trying to get pregnant assume he's 100% fertile.

The undescended one is often sterile. The best way to answer this question is to check with your surgeon and/or test your sperm count and functionality. ...Read more
