Hi,

The operation itself would likely not have any effect on sexual function. If you are planning to get married in December, then you could have the operation as late as September or October (though of course, it may be better to have it done much earlier so that you may be available for any activities you need to attend before getting married).

The issues that may arise would be capacity to impregnate your wife with only one testicle. Having one testicle does not absolutely mean that sperm count would be low, so chances are there won’t really be a problem here.

Another issue is that the undescended testis may be at risk to harbor cancer. Depending on the findings on the testicle, you may need to undergo more treatment beyond surgery. Some of the treatment may lower your capacity to produce sperm, so that among the options would be to store sperm before cancer treatment (I’m not sure how acceptable this is to your culture).

Please make sure that your spouse is aware of the situation and it would be helpful if she is shown the above reply or maybe you could take her to a doctor and discuss the situation with her beforehand.
