Hello, Iv been trying to get pregnant for a couple of years. I had a hernia surgery when i was little and it affected one of my ovaries. The doctor told my mother that i might have problems having children later in life. I am now 21 and would like to have a child. I havnt seen a doctor yet for it for the fact that i am single and in the army. They frown apon single parents and me going to go see a doctor about getting pregnant would start some issues.
Hi there, infertility caused by inguinal hernia surgery is a recognized complication. The cause of the infertility can be related to either the vas deferens or the testicle. The incidence of injury to the vas deferens during inguinal herniorrhaphy has been estimated at 0.3% for adults and between 0.8% and 2.0% for children. Injury to the testicle, which eventually leads to atrophy, is estimated to occur in about 0.5% for primary hernia repairs.
Fertility is usually not affected by an inguinal hernia or the surgery. In men there is a chance that surgery or an incarcerated hernia can cause injury to the vas deferens, the tube that carries sperm from the testicles to the urethra. In rare cases, surgery or an incarcerated hernia may injure the blood vessels that supply one or both testicles with blood, which may cause the affected testicle to shrink - but that is very rare.
Hi, I am a 22 year old male from England. When I was 18 months old I had a hernia operation on my left side. Both my testicles were undecended at this age. When they operated for my hernia they also brought down my left testi into the scrotum. My right testicle was still undecended at the age of 9 and I went to hospital to have this lowered. I did go into surgeory but the doctors decided not to do anything and let nature take its course.
My partner is beginning to think it is him as a result of his low hernia repair, but that was nearly 8 years ago, and as I said before we did have 1 confirmed pregnancy.
HI Jess honestly I'm not sure if a hernia can effect his sperm count. I just wanted to tell you my RE office usually can get the results within 2 days unless they require me to come in for a consult. Then they tell me at our appointment.
Hello, Kate I too agree that it sounds like a hernia. I have had all 3 the hernia which I'm having surgery for Dec 6th, the ovarian cysts, and an ectopic pregnancy-both of which I had surgery for years ago. The ovarian cyst would not be protruding to the outside there has to be some sort of weakness in the lining, or the area for that to happen generally seen with a hernia, and your puking episodes could have caused enough straining to cause it.
Tell him not to worry and have the test done, My husband had a hernia in his testicle and had to have surgery but no insurance at the time, so he actually had to keep pushing it back up in there and live with the pain until he could save up enough money to have the surgery and pay cash, He had it and every now and then when he coughs he has some pain down there but says he isn't worried about it.
Also, he's only in his 30s, and still wants to have kids someday, and we've read stories of infertility resulting from inguinal hernia repair. Any advice/input/experiences?
I stopped the infertility treatments in Aug 2005. Due to infertility and these treatments I have always had a fear of ovarian cancer. I have been having non-specific gastric issues for the past 3-4 months and have undergone an upper endoscopy, a barium swallow and ultrasound of the abdomen where no issues were found except for a small hiatal hernia and a little inflammation of the gastric tract. This was all done as I was suffering from abdominal pain in the epigastric area.
[41,56] Perineal hernias can usually be successfully treated with surgery, and castration at the time of hernia repair is recommended.[42] Perianal fistulas are a chronic immune-mediated disease seen most commonly in German Shepherds and Irish Setters and rarely in other breeds. It occurs predominately in intact male dogs, which suggests some hormonal influence, though a specific causal connection has not been identified.
Surgery or orchiopexy to bring the testicle into the scrotum is the main treatment and having surgery early may prevent damage to the testicles that can cause infertility. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper management. Hope this helps. Take care and regards.
They can be a cause of infertility and there is also a higher risk of hernia and testicular cancer. The only available treatment option is surgery called an orchiopexy.

I have this problem of recent, i had inguinal hernia surgery a year ago. does this mean my body is rejecting the hernia mesh now? What can i do, besides the hospital, i have no insurance.
Hi, probably the pain is due to varicocele only, wearing scrotal support will help in relieving pain. Surgery is the only treatment. For more information visit http://en.wikipedia.
I forgot to say that I have undergone an operation last February because of Hernia, and I've learned that Hernia is usually associated with having an undescended testis. I would just like to ask if how that operation affect my case. THANKS!

At the age of 5, I did have a surgery to take care of my Umbilical Hernia. Let me not forget to mention, I have been diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). Also if it helps, the Dr's never seem to be able to locate a fetus on ultrasound. But sometime in the miscarriage process, my body does evacuate a small tissue filled cacoon looking thing. Where could the babies be attaching themselves to?
I don't know if it is is directly related, but in 2006 I underwent emergency surgery for an incarcerated hernia at the area of the right inguinal region. Even prior to this hernia, my right testicle would still retract when I was cold. It seems sort of ironic to me. In 1999 I had a vasectomy that resulted into a hematoma on the left side and had emergency surgery to get the blood clot removed. This area never healed and had a small fistula.
(my right testicle went into my body again during sex) i had Inguinal Hernia when i was a child and i was diagnosed with chronic prostatatis in 2009)is it possible to be torsion? i dont think i was examined well enough to rule it out.
i been to the ER and the doctor has admitted me because he said something about my gallbladder and slugishy stuff around my liver and organs. well they alread done the appendix surgery first and he said my appendix was growing on top of my uterus and it was abnormal. so the doctor took it out and said that should help my pain but it hasnt.
Or is there an option of having just inguinal hernia surgery to correct the groin swelling problem and wait. 5. Could hydrocele repair have caused zero sperm count? What are the chances of finding the sperms in biopsy?
My situation is quite a bit different. I am 43, been with my husband 19 years, went through infertility for 8 years and then... I developed Breast Cancer at 31. I had a massectomy and then a tram flap reconstruction(They take your muscle and fat from your tummy to reconstruct your breast). Soooo,6 Months later, I had a hernia and had to be opened up again and they put mesh in my tummy.Then, in 2002, I had the endometrial ablation for bleeding.
Hello, Such kind of sharp testicular pain can be due to torsion testis and it needs to be ruled out as soon as possible because it is a medical emergency. Other causes are excessive bicycle riding, hernia or kidney or ureteric stones. Some causes of testicle pain, including testicular torsion, can lead to infertility if not treated promptly. Infections also should be examined and treated right away. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
my obgyn did say that when I go back in December if the arimidex hasn't worked surgery is inevitable. We've tried everything else. I really wanna call my doctor and voice my concern about this but I'm not sure if I'm way off on this one or not. I don't want to sound stupid or that I'm grasping for straws. I'm just in a great deal of pain and discomfort and no one seems to know why...........It's very frustrating! If anyone can offer and help or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.
you might have a hernia or Varicoceles are a dilation of the veins that drain the testis. These are found in the spermatic cord and are called the pampiniform plexus. Varicoceles typically develop after puberty, although many are not detected until evaluation for fertility problems is undertaken. Incidence Varicoceles are very common. In fact, they are the most common cause for male factor subfertility, accounting for up to 40 percent of cases.
Well here I go again and in complete agony just 5 months post op after 14cm left ovarian cyst which stuck my bladder and bowel down, and at the time I was fobbed off by my surgeon, it all came to a standstill when my bowel and bladder virtually stopped working, when ever I tried to open my bladder i would hear a large clicking noise, my surgeon told me this was nonsence and sent me home 2 weeks later i had to have an emergency op, the cyst was begnin, my recovery has been very slow and painful,
This lower temperature is important for the development of the testicle as well as for production of normal sperm. Studies have shown that there is an increased risk of infertility in men with a history of undescended testicles. Relocating the testicle into the scrotum may decrease the risk of fertility problems, particularly if done at an early age. There are other advantages to a location within the scrotum. There is a cosmetic advantage.
I think without insurance my surgery was around $3,000. But, I would have done the surgery even without insurance. We couldn't have afforded it without insurance but I would have found a way to pay for it. The surgery was definitly worth the relief I got. Good luck! Dr. Albee is truly a great doctor. His bedside manner is excellent and his follow through with patients is unbelievable!
