Does hypospadias cause male infertility?

By Mónica Aura Masip M.D., M.Sc. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 06/02/2021

Hypospadias causes problems in ejaculation, preventing the correct ejaculation of sperm in some cases, even after surgical correction.

If there is also a hormonal or karyotype alteration, there may be an alteration in the correct production of spermatozoa.

All of this means that the chances of having offspring are reduced.
