Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
Why do you need, or why do you want, to have your testicles removed?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
I will opt out so that another expert can assist you.
Dr. Mires here to help assist you with your question. A bilateral orchiectomy (removing both testicles) will, as you said, stop you from producing the hormone testosterone. The long-term effects of this could be: infertility, loss of muscle mass, decrease in sexual drive, weight gain, hot flashes, and breast enlargement.
I hope this answers your question.
