spermatic cord
the structure extending from the deep inguinal ring to the testis, comprising the ductus deferens, testicular artery and vein including the pampiniform plexus, lymphatic ducts, autonomic nerves as a testicular plexus, smooth muscle tissue around the vessels, called also internal cremaster muscle, and the visceral layer of the vaginal tunic. Clinicians are likely to include the external cremaster muscle, and the parietal layer of the vaginal tunic as parts of the cord, although, strictly, these structures simply surround the cord. Called also funiculus spermaticus.
spermatic cord torsion
torsion of the cord to the point where circulation in the blood vessels of the cord ceases; rare but occasional occurrence in dogs, particularly where the testicle is retained and enlarged by tumor. Causes acute abdominal pain and death due to shock.

Q. how do i teat my no sperm count? i do not have a live sperm,how can i treat and have live sperm count

A. The treatment is done only at specialist centers, and consists first of evaluation of the reason for this condition (called azoospermia). If an anatomical malformation is found, it may be corrected, as well as medical conditions, and in some cases, direct extraction of sperms from the testes (called MESA) enables in-vitro fertilization.

Q. can hepatitis be transferred from fathers sperm when concieving a child? My partner has hepatitis C and he has gotten me pregnant will our baby have it too?

A. Here is taken from wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hepatitis_C#Transmission) :

Sexual transmission of HCV is considered to be rare. Studies show the risk of sexual transmission in heterosexual, monogamous relationships is extremely rare or even null. The CDC does not recommend the use of condoms between long-term monogamous discordant couples (where one partner is positive and the other is negative). However, because of the high prevalence of hepatitis C, this small risk may translate into a non-trivial number of cases transmitted by sexual routes. Vaginal penetrative sex is believed to have a lower risk of transmission than sexual practices that involve higher levels of trauma to anogenital mucosa.

Mother-to-child transmission of hepatitis C has been well described, but occurs relatively infrequently. Transmission occurs only among women who are HCV RNA positive at the time of delivery; the risk of transmission in this setting is approximately 6 out of 100. Among women w
