Hi,
For 8 years, I took the contraceptive pill and stopped in May 2010 as I was hoping to conceive. However, my partner has had one testicle removed and I wondering if I can still get pregnant. I am very upset. Can you please give me an advise?Thanks

They are many couple whose partner has only one testicle and they still manage to conceive. It also takes on average 1 year for most couples to conceive. However, if you have been trying for over a year and nothing is happening it would be a good idea for you and your partner to see your GP, to have some simple fertility tests and if necessary be referred to a specialist.
