My son is 11 months old and today at the Dr's appointment she said his testes havn't come down and that he will most likely have to have surgery to correct it so his sperm won't end up being destroyed... I was under the impression that they didn't come down until a boy entered puberty but I guess I was wrong. Anyone else have this problem. Risks complications?Answer Question

I knew a kid with only one. But as far as I know they "drop " at puberty but are always outside the body. Both of my boys' are outside the body. They just get lower I think. I would talk to the doctor and get all the details prior to scheduling anything. I would also ask them if you weight til he's older is it going to be a case of sterilisation or not. I would think if you wait til he can make the choice as an adult the sperm will be okay. Sperm are constantly being made... I would think if he has it fixed as an adult they would be made from then on just fine...
