Hi! Is there anyone on this forum who has had a unilateral orchiectomy or for any other reason has just one testicle? I was born with normally-descended testicles but, unfortunately, when I was fifteen I had to have one removed for a neoplasm. Now I was not happy at all about having to lose a testicle at such a young age but, it happened. I still have a normal, undamaged healthy one left (and it happens to be the left). Anyways, I've always been very self conscious about this aspect of myself and it has often led me into depression on more than one occasion. Although I didn't think much of it in the first two or three years afterwards, since then it has really weighed down on my psyche. Now, I appear to have gone through normal puberty. I can remember being very 'horny' about five months after the testicle was taken out - probably more so than ever before - which I feel is a good sign. It was also about five or six months after surgery that I had quite an explosion of leg hair. Regular shaving started at around 16-17 but I only did it once every three days or so. I had a wet dream every one or two weeks. I was always rather 'lanky' and lean without noticeable muscle but I feel that this might just be my genetics because even as a boy I was always on the lean/skinny side in comparison to my friends. Since I entered my 20s I've been very self-conscious though about the possibility of having low testosterone. I had my testosterone checked twice by an endocrinologist when I was 21 and each time the number I registered at was "20" (which I believe is nmol/L?). I was tested at about 9 am. Recently I went in again (I'm 23 now - almost 24) and I registered at 22.3 (and the doc said that normal range was 6-30). I was tested at 8:30 am. Would anyone know if this sounds normal for a 23-year-old? I sometimes wonder whether my testosterone is low but I'm also aware that I have paranoia issues surrounding it: On the one hand, since I was 22 I've started to 'fill out' a lot more and I'm no longer as teenagerish looking in physique. Currently I'm 6'1.5 and I weigh 173 lbs. I always felt quite 'aroused' just touching my girlfriend when out on dates, and I masturbate 7-14 times a week I now shave every day as there is 'just' enough hair to warrant it. I have normal leg, armpit and pubic hair. I have no chest or back hair, but I'm very Nordic (Baltic German) ethnically, which might explain why. On the other hand, I am concerned with the fact that I struggle with depression, but I know it revolves around body image issues (being short one testicle). I used to get morning erections in my later teens (after surgery) but I don't find myself waking up with them anymore. I also find that I'm not really stimulated by visual things like I used to be when I was in my early teens and just entering puberty. I wonder, is this just a normal part of aging? I can't impress enough though, the fact that I have terrible self-esteem issues revolving around sexuality in general because of what I'm 'missing'. Anyways, I would be very interested to hear what anyone has to say about all this, and even more interested to hear anyone who has an experience in the same boat. There's a lot of knowledge on this forum. Thanks for your time!
