I have problem with my testical. I have only one big testical when I was born. I`ve merried for three months, i have a normal sex intercourse with my wife but she doesnt know that I have only single testical. We`ve tried to have children but she keep having menstruation. Can I have children with one testical? should I tell my wife that I have single testical?
Thank you very much
Men with only one testicle can certainly father children, provided that the remaining testicle is normal. I would suggest that you have a semen analysis performed. This would determine if sperm production is normal. Secondly, if you have only tried for 3 months with a normal semen analysis, you should be reassured to keep trying for another 9 months before having a complete infertility evaluation (assuming that your wife is not 40 or older).
