Just got my lab and blood results back and been told I'm infertile

Resolved Question:

Just got my lab and blood results back and been told I'm infertile and don't produce any sperm and have very low testosterone probably since getting my testicles lowered as a child. I got checked out because my testicles have been getting smaller for years. My question is how can I have low testosterone when I'm horny a lot of the time, get morning wood and have no trouble with sex and ejaculation?

Dear JA customer,
sorry to hear about your problem.
testosterone is produced from leydig cells of testes and exists in two forms, bound to testosterone binding protein and free form. symptoms of deficiency are more pronounced when free hormone level falls down
Low testosterone symptoms don't always include feeling like you have no sex drive. Some men maintain sexual desire at relatively low testosterone levels. For other men, libido may lag even with normal testosterone levels. Low testosterone is one of the possible causes of low libido, however. If testosterone is lowered far enough, virtually all men will experience some decline in sex drive.
so, this is initial answer, if you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
