Will losing this testicle stop me from producing testosterone and "being a man"?

Will losing this testicle stop me from producing testosterone and "being a man"?

Most likely not.: The second testicle (if normally functioning) is able to "pick up the slack" and produce adequate testosterone without a change in your "manhood". However, if there is already an issue with the testicle (such as it is small or has sustained prior injury) then it may not produce normal amounts of testosterone. All things equal though with a healthy remaining testicle, there should be no changes. ...Read more

If testicles shrink from using testosterone when u stop will theu grow back?

If testicles shrink from using testosterone when u stop will theu grow back?

Yes...once TRT stops: Rx testosterone {exogenous} will cause a feedback inhibition of spermatogenesis and possible "shrinkage" of the testes. You have 4 options: 1) discontinue testosterone replacement therapy and the testicles will go back to baseline 2) continue with trt 3) use HCG as trt 4) continue trt with low dose HCG supplementation - off label http://jcem.Endojournals.Org/content/90/5/2595.Full. ...Read more

If I'm on  androgel 10mg for 6 years it meen my body not produce natural testosterone and the testicle stop producing?

Androgel: Hi, yes, the exogenous testosterone can suppress the FSH/LH?testosterone pathway by suppressing the LH/FSH (the hormones secreted by Pituitary gland and stimulate the testis to produce Testosterone), therefore the natural production of Testosterone decreases and also the Testis could shrink down nd also the production of sperms get disturbed. ...Read more

Losing testicle? same testosterone level? Seeing answers like"having one testicle can still have normal levels" i'm asking"will it be the SAME as two"

Here are some ...: A person only needs one of his/her paired organs if both are healthy to begin with to function and live normally. Likewise, a man with solitary testis resulting from either congenital or acquired cause should be able to function close to the men with two testes. Besides, realize & accept the facts of life since life is a one-way street of accumulation, modification, and continuation from birth to ...Read more

Is it true that if you receive hCG injections while on testosterone, it will stop your testicles from shrinking? Do some men do this while on trt?

Is it true that if you receive hCG injections while on testosterone, it will stop your testicles from shrinking? Do some men do this while on trt?

For fertility.: Giving testosterone (t) stops the pituitary from making hormones that stimulate t production and sperm production. Since most of the testes is for sperm production, use of t shrinks the testes. Giving injections of HCG and msh (which mimic pituitary hormones) can restore sperm production and fertility in some patients. Due to expense, it is only used for fertility, not just to prevent shrinkage. ...Read more

Does just one testicle produce enough testosterone?

Yes: If you're asking whether absence of one testicle will be noticeable, then the answer is no, assuming the other one left remaining is functional. Not only can one functional testicle produce enough testosterone to keep a man masculinized, it's also enough to keep him fertile. In other words, you won't notice any clinical difference after an orchiectomy (surgical removal of testicle). ...Read more
