Since I've been looking all over, I really didn't know where in the world to post this in the first place, I just figured that I would give it a shot here. I'm trying to find out about the surgery need to be able to produce sperm again. I've only got one testicle and it's been that way since the age of 3 when the other one was removed after not coming down, so I'm trying to find out about repairing it so that way I can be able to have children at long last. Everything works fine, but instead of the seamen being white, they're completely clear. I know that sergury can fix it, but I've been trying to find out the cost for ages, any chance of help on this one at all please. Thanks.

I'm not sure a surgery is the answer for you. You need to seek the attention of a fertility trained urologist who can evaluate an ejaculate and see if you have any sperm production. Semen color does not predict fertility. If no sperm is see in the ejaculate the next step would be a hormone profile to see if you have testicular failure. A physical exam by the doctor will also help evaluate any problems like absence of vas deferens so the sperm is not able to be ejaculated but possibly still being produced. One testicle can produce plenty of sperm for normal fertility.

Make an appointment and have an analysis done to get the process started and hopefully you will quickly have the answers you need.
