Hello and hope you are doing well.

The hernia may cause a mild dragging type of pain. It is unlikely to cause any sexual problems. But it can get obstructed and strangulated and lead to complications and hence may need surgery.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

I had an inguinal hernia. Got out of surgery around 14 days ago. I had an open mesh repair. I have documented my surgery and recovery here:
