Is Cryptorchid sterile?

Cryptorchid testes are incapable of producing sperm due to the elevated temperature of the retained testes. Consequently, a stallion would be sterile if both testes are cryptorchid.

Thereof, are cryptorchid dogs sterile?

Bilaterally cryptorchid dogs are typically sterile because the higher body temperature inside the abdomen is enough to prevent sperm production. They will still exhibit male behaviors. Unilateral cryptorchidism is more common, and these dogs can be fertile. Sometimes there may be an acute onset of abdominal pain.

can an undescended testicle make you sterile? Undescended testicles that are not brought into the scrotum from a young age will not produce sperm. Even with surgical correction, there are higher rates of infertility in men who had undescended testicles when they were young. Testicular cancer usually occurs between the ages of 25 and 40 years.

Keeping this in consideration, why would cryptorchidism result in sterility?

The main reasons for infertility in men with a history of cryptorchidism treated by orchidopexy are maldevelopment of the testes and an improper environment for the normal development of the testes, hyperthermia, and antisperm antibodies.

Can Orchiopexy affect fertility?

A study by Lee et al. found no relationship to testicular size at orchidopexy for unilateral UDT on future fertility as measured by actual paternity rates (27). Possible explanations for this include hypertrophy of the normally descended testicle, which could compensate for impaired fertility of the abnormal testis.
