Why is one of my balls hanging lower?
“It’s perfectly normal for one to be bigger and heavier – and that’s the reason it hangs lower,” says Professor David Neal, surgeon and urologist at the University of Newcastle. It’s also normal for testicles to contract.
Is it normal for one testicle to hang way lower than the other?

Can a man with 1 testicle have babies?

Does having 1 testicle affect testosterone?
A single testicle can produce enough testosterone to fuel your sex drive. This amount of testosterone is also enough for you to get an erection and ejaculate during an orgasm.

Why does my boyfriend only have one ball?
Some men may have a “buried testicle.” Known as cryptochidism, one or both testicles do not descend into the scrotum. This condition is generally, but not always, noticed at birth. Often an infant boy’s testicle that has not descended will usually move into the scrotum on its own during the first year of life.
