I am 33 years old. When I was 13 I had my right testicle removed because it was undescended. it would come down in the scrotum if I pushed it down but then eventually it would go back into the abdomen. It was very painful while up there. The doctor said he had no choice but to take it out.
My wife and I have been trying to conceive a child for about a year. I went to see a urologist last year t osee what the chances of us conceiving were with one testicle. He did some checking in my left testicle and found a vericose vein. I did a sperm analysis and discovered my sperm were abnormal in shape. He said my chances of fathering a child were about 30%. He said I could have surgery to correct it but he wasn't sure what the chances are that it would the situation. My wife and I really want to have our own child. I have trying to do some research on people who have had both of these problems and how likely it is to conceive after having the procedure don but I haven't had any luck. Can anyone help me out? Thank you!View Thread
