Well I am trying to not be to graphic here so sorry if it is.

I feel really embarresed about this and sad at the same time.
Basicly i lost one of my male parts the round kind i only have 1 instead of 2 and i am 23 and i went to the medical profession and they could not find any trace of my missing male thingy.

I guess you know what im talking about.

Well i can only guess that i was born with 1 instead of 2.

I have a few questions

1 would this effect the chances of me having children?
2 does it make me any less of a man only having 1?

As i said i am embarresed about this and sad but at the same time i am astonished its a mistery where it went too and how i came to only have 1 instead of 2 male round things.

I hope this did not offend anyone.

You are not offending anyone this is the male issues discussion sub-forum you may even call them "testicles" if you wish. If females do not want to read this they can avoid the sub-forum because that is what it is here for. Also if you do not want females reading/replying your posts simply edit the title and put in there that you do not want them to. I cannot stop them from reading but I can stop them from replying. I will respect your wishes.

Now to answer your questions.

1. I am no doctor but as long as it is healthy that only means your sperm production is cut in half. So all this means is that it will take you longer to "recover" after ejaculation and perhaps affect the amount of sperm in your semen. So I do not think it should as long as that "thing" is working properly. Edit: I forgot to mention that the volume would be minimally effected because semen is mainly comprised of lubricant produced in the cowper's gland I believe. Don't quote me on that though!

2. BY NO MEANS does it make you less of a man. What makes you a man is who your are on the inside not who you are on the outside. Society is so materialistic and focuses to much on what it can see instead of everything that is there. In my opinion you are no less or more of a man for having only one.

Thank you for your reply.

I am not sure if it works well or not. I am ln england and i have been toying with the idea of going to get tested to see if everything works well but iv never done that kind of thing.

I am not 100% sure but i think you have to go to some kind of clinic not sure if i could face going and doing that but i feel i need to find out if all works well.

Also for 20 years of my life i had a hernia which went bad i had to go to hospital 8 months ago and be operated on which leaves me wondering if my hernia that went bad could have any effect on my male parts.

I guess i wont know untill i go and get tested.

I dont know how i would feel if i did find out that i could never had children i think it might effect me in a negative way.

Well I know it would affect me in a negative way if I had "one" and was infertile (please note I am not saying you are I am just posing a situation, I believe you are fertile). Its hard to say or to state something about this issue. Because it affects the part that men usually consider to be the source of their manhood, but it isn't. There are men without any of those "parts" that have lost them various ways that are more manly than the "biggest" of men. Its your heart that counts.

I would recommend testing to find out. Just know we will all be here for you once you find out. My prayers are with you. I am sorry but I do not know much about hernias.

It means a lot to me that you all are here no matter what.
I did some searching on google and found out a little which says hernia operations can cause infertility but im not going to take anything to heart untill i get tested.

I plan to do this as soon as i find out how.
I think i best call my gp or nhs direct and ask for advice on how i can get tested.

I feel a little sad right i just keep thinking what if.

Its alot to process right now so im going to bed.

I will let you guys know what happens i just hope it will be good news.

Well the doctors should have told you if they screwed up or if they had to do something that risked your fertility.

I know things will turn out. I know it is hard but try not to think what if. Try to keep positive thoughts, that will help your test. Being sad can affect how much sperm is in your semen but to my knowledge not to such a degree as to be infertile. My prayers are with ya.

All i can remember is that i was rushed in to hospital for the hernia op it was a life or death situation becuase it ruptured.

All i can remember is that the doctor said i could lose my only testile but he would not tell me about the other risks.

but as i say i wont take anything to heart untill i taken a test.

I might get a home test they do them for men now i think it may be better then going to a clinic as clinics are usualy for couples trying to have children.

the other one could be inside of you they are normally inside the male body until very early age the drop to the sack maybe on did not drop, it doesn't make you less of a man and i know most woman don't care about that woman are more forgiving then men in that sense, don't worry about it bro your still a man
