Could Injuries To The Testicle Cause Fertility Problems
Maybe: Testicular trauma, if severe, can rupture the testicle and cause impairment of sperm production but this is very rare. If a man has just had typical playground testicle injuries, it's unlikely to explain fertility problems and he should get a more thorough evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more
Possibly: If the testis both grew in size and produced hormons that sustained a normal puberty, it is likely they are fine frrom a fertility standpoint. If one or both sustained enough injury that one or more withered, there would be a probem. Assessment at a fertility center could give you more information.
Usually no: Unless there is rupture of the testicle which would be result of severe trauma and cause scrotal swelling and pain sufficient to require emergency room care. These injuries are quite rare, & caused by more than a hit. Ruptured testicles need to be repaired because sperm escaping into the tissue could cause sperm antibodies to be produced which in turn could cause infertility.
My left testicle goes very high kind of into the abdomen during sexual relations. Can this cause fertility problems?
Left testicle now horizontal post hydrocele correction surgery, will this create health or fertility problems?
Depends 1 or both: Somewhat & hopefully only slightly reduced fertility with 1 testicle up after puberty & other fully descended. Severe to complete infertility if both testes remain undescended. Fertility should be close to normal if single undescended testis was corrected in very early childhood. Fertility is always reduced if both testes were undescended, worse when they were higher &/or later they were repaired.See 1 more doctor answer
Can I loose my testicle or have fertility issues, if someone squeezes it really hard with hand. What type of injury is caused by squeezing? And cure?
Probably not if...: Squeezing testicle with subsequent pain alone & no bleeding inside testicles and swelling would not affect fertility. If infertility is your concern, seek evaluation & counseling since some 50% of infertility result from female factors, 30% from males', and 20% from both females' and males'. As to cure, cure has never happen but just modify patient's internal & external environments for self-heal
If only 1 testicle: ... Was injured, and the other 1 was fine, fertility should be ok. If both testicles were severely injured, that would have more serious implications for fertility. Minor testicular injuries should have no effect on fertility.
Probably not: Many men experience " a kick or two" to your testicles and generally it does not cause any significant damage that will effect your future reproductive function. Good luck and try to avoid any further insults.
33 year old male. Diagnosed with varicocele in left testicle at age of 18. How serious could problems with reproduction and fertility be?
Varicocele: It is estimated that 15% of men have a varicocele that appears during puberty. Evaluation of male factor infertility identifies varicocele a in about 40 %. Obviously, 15% of men are not infertile! But some subset develops problems. Evaluation is needed if testicular atrophy of left testis occurs, if semen analyses have several parameters off, and sometimes when a man waits to have children later
My left testicle is little larger in size than the right one but has no pain and any other problems. Do I have to worry? Will it affect my fertility?
Testicles: This is normal. All men have one testicle that is the dominate one and one that is the back up. Normal.
Can CP/CPPS cause inflammation in the genitourinary system? Is this common? Injured my prostate. Could testicles be affected? No STD's. Fertility?
Very common: Chronic prostatitis (CP) and chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) may be the same, as you seem to know. Very common. Inflammation sometimes is present, e.g. white blood cells in prostate fluid or urine. I can't judge if past prostate injury is contributing. CP/CPPS pain often is felt in testicles, but no actual testicular problem. It's not known to affect fertility. Keep working w/ your urologist.
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. If you're planning to conceive he should get a full semen analysis with antisperm antibody testing to make sure that he doesn't have a low sperm count, or proteins on his sperm that can prevent them from fertilizing an egg - injury is a risk factor for these.
Possibly: Men who have both testes undescended in inguinal canal will almost definitely be infertile. However most men with a single fully descended testis are fertile, even if the opposite testiscle is in the inguinal canal.
I am suffering wth testicle hanging on cremaster muscle. From past 4 years so is it effects my sexual life & infertility problems? Tell me the solution
Jockstrap may help: You should see your urologist. This is not dangerous. Support of the testicle with jockey shorts or a jockstrap may help.
Does one sided cryptorchidism cause infertility in men? Does a man with one healthy testicle have a lower sperm count?
Likely fertile: Sperm count will probably be within normal limits because remaining testicle will grow larger (compensatory hy[pertrophy) and thus produce more sperm than if it were 1 of a pair, but count may be slightly reduced. Semen volume is unaffected and normal because >95% is produced by the seminal vesicles, prostate and cowper's glands. Sperm is no > 5% of ejaculate..See 2 more doctor answers
