Hi. Thanks for your query. Read and understood your history and concerns: about masturbation, which you have been doing since the age of 16 and now you are 33 that is for 17 years. You also have hydrocele. Now to answer your queries: - Hydrocele does not affect the sexual life unless it is very large. - There is no relation between hydrocele formation and masturbation. - Hydrocele again has no relation whether you can become father or not. It is the sperm count in semen that matters and you can get your semen tests done after 5 days of abstinence meaning no sexual activity of any type. So get semen analysis, get the hydrocele operated if large so that you have a great marital life.
