Fertility is a natural process to insure the survival of human
species. Through natural selection, we produce many offspring when the
reproductive system works at it's peak in the suitable environment with
plenty of food around. On the other hand, the reproductive system may
completely shut down or work at it's minimum state and we produce less
offspring, when the environment is hostile including less foods around,

blood that surrounds the testicle), bruise or rupture of the testicle.
