No it won't: You are concerned about patency of your vas deferens. Lumen of vas is normally closed all the time except for passage of sperm. This lumen can not be seen on mri. Best first step to find out if one or both vas is/are patent is by semenalysis. I personally share your concern about wisdom of hernia inguinal repairs with mesh in young men. Of course there will be cases where it is the best technique. ...Read more

Hernia activity: I'm not exactly sure what a press up is. However, as a general rule, activity with a hernia is limited by discomfort.
