  • Will he need hormone therapy?

    Hey all,
    My boyfriend just had one testicle removed, and he's afraid that he's going to have less testosterone and it's going to change him. Does this happen with the loss of one testicle or both?

    The loss of one testicle should not affect his testonterone levels. Now that the one is king of his domain he will step it up a notch. If he is ever in doubt he can have it checked as part of one of the many follow-ups he will need.

      He should be fine. If not like dadmo said it is a simple blood test and can easily be corrected with a patch ,gel, or pill. I'm 28 I use the patch and my wife and I have a healthy sex life.
