For inguinal hernia, surgery is the treatment of choice. Control of predisposing cause like chronic cough that increases intra-abdominal pressure is important. Medical treatment will not cure the condition. Sexual activity can worsen the hernia by increasing the intra-abdominal pressure. It is better to do the surgery before getting married.
Next Steps
Surgical consultation.
Health Tips
Avoid lifting weights.
