My husband had surgery for a hernia and we are trying to conceive we were wondering if it causes lower sperm counts?
Which was it? A hydrocele or a hernia?
A hydrocele is a collection of fluid around the testicle. It can cause a lower sperm count.
A hernia is when the contents of the abdomen get out and may make the scrotum swell.
Normally a hernia won't lower the sperm count
