Yes, I was 16 and they went down. My right testicle blew up like a goose egg. It was not a pleasant experience. Spent 2 weeks flat on my back. Yes women can get it. I had a teacher come down with the mumps. She was out for about 2 weeks
I had it when I was about 7 or 8. The glands on the sides of my neck and around my jaw swelled big. My Grandmother always has a traumatic cure or test for ailments. She told Deb to give me a pickle. I bit into the pickle and it felt like my neck was about to bust out everywhere. I had to lay in the bed and be still for like 3 days. It was not good.
In the testes, mumps infection can cause swelling, pain, tenderness and, sometimes, permanent shrinkage (atrophy), although it rarely causes sterility.
no but I have a brother who did
I have heard that. Thats crazy how it could drop from your neck to your nads and do permanent damage
I think they did but he has two daughters now so it was not permanent damage
