I was born with an undescended testicle, so in essence I only have one currently and the one at that is on the small side. anyone know the odds of my still being fertile? I would go get a sperm count test done but those things are expensive for those of us without insurance.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
The only think is testing that can tell your fertility status.You need a semen analysis and blond hormone testing like ''serum-FSH'' measurement to know how fertile you are.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
