Hello,

The hernia is not related to infertility directly and it will not hamper the fertility of your husband. The hernia need to be operated to avoid strangulation, obstruction like complication. So don't worry about his infertility due to hernia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician

My husband had a hernia about a year ago and had surgery to repair it. Now he has another one around the same spot. He is worried that the doctor is going to have to kill the nerves for long term pain control and is worried about how that will affect his man parts.

hi doctor, i have a swelling in the groin for he past 4 years and it looks like a htdrocle/hernia. Please help me diagnose this and treat this. It has a liquidy feel and it goes down if I apply pressure when I lie down. It is rarely painful and is quite uncomfortable if I stand up or do some heavy duty work. Please advice as to whether I should go in for a surgery or not. I remember that one of my doctors had told me around 8 years back that I might have an inguinal hernia, but I did not have a swelling or pain back then. Please advice. I am in Chennai and It would be great if you could suggest a good surgeon that I can approach for treatment.
