Can Hypospadias Have Offspring?
hello my name is muhammad fadly from solo, i want to ask if a person with mild hypospadias (urinary hole is – + 1 cm below the normal urinary hole) can have children / offspring or not ??
Good evening, thanks for the question
Hypospadias is a congenital disorder where the urogenital tract is in an abnormal location, which is located in the ventral or lower part of the penis. Hypospadias require corrections through surgery, where the recommended time is when they are 6-12 months old.
Hypospadias itself does not have a direct impact on male fertility. It was reported according to research that sperm quality and penis size in hypospadias were not significantly different from those without hypospadias. Infertility can occur in severe types of hypospadias which are accompanied by testicular abnormalities which cause it cannot produce good quality sperm. In such conditions hypospadias repair surgery also can not handle infertility due to abnormalities in the testes.
That's all, hope you can help
