Can my boyfriend have children?

Byline: Joan Burnie

Q MY boyfriend only has one testicle. He says the other was removed when he was young because it wasn't growing properly.

We didn't have sex for ages because he was frightened to tell me.

Now we're talking marriage and I do love him. We also have a good sex life.

But although I want to marry him, I also want kids and I need to know if this is possible, given his problem. I don't like to ask him because I know he'll be upset.

A IF you're on the point of agreeing to marry someone, you should be able to talk about these very intimate matters.

That said, men with a single testicle can and do father kids.

I'm pretty sure your boyfriend will have discussed it with his GP.

It's something most men in his situation would want to know.

So time now for you to get him to talk about it so he can reassure you.
