What is human castration?

Answer

The result of human castration is a man without functioning testicles or a woman without functioning ovaries. Castration can be surgical, chemical, or otherwise. A vasectomy, penectomy, circumcision, and hysterectomy are not considered castration.

Someone who is castrated is referred to as a eunuch. Castrations have been performed throughout history either as a way to exert power over another human, as a form of punishment, or as part of a religious ritual. There are long-term effects physically for eunuchs. Because they lack the function of these organs critical for human reproduction, they usually are plagued with hormonal imbalances.
