Common Questions and Answers about Androgel and low sperm count


Avatar f tn Hi, my husband has mild depression, low sex drive, soft erections, desesatization (which makes it harder for him to achieve orgasm), gained fat around his middle, more tired, but doesn't sleep well, loss of muscle mass, acne on his back, low sperm count, low sperm mobility, and he's had benign enlarged prostate and frequent urination at night. Plus he no longer has morning erections. These symptoms have developed one at a time over the yrs and has grown worse with age.
694895 tn?1263662430 The result was 80...At my age, it should be close to 350. It is possible that low T is responsible for the severity and long duration of this episode. The Rx prescribed is Androgel...but at $250 an Rx I am unable to have it filled...I have no insurance and not enough money to start the treatment...anyone else have their Test level checked as part of a depression profile ? If so, what therapy were you prescribed.
Avatar f tn ) He has even gone to a therapist for counseling for anxiety. I recently googled Androgel and anxiety and did come across quite a few people who have had cases of anxiety with Androgel. Could this be the cause? We think possibly. We recently stopped the pristyq (about 2 weeks ago) and just went to the endocronologist today. First time seeing a specialist. She had him stop the Androgel, although she has not heard of it causing anxiety. She is having him do blood work in 2 weeks.
Avatar m tn The Androgel bottle says it's supposed to be kept at 77 degree's. The room I keep my Androgel in a roo thats about50 degree's . Could this be affecting the Androgel? It doesny seem to be working for me. Started on 4 pumps and worked at first then it didnt. Now on 6 pumps and I felt a difference but now that has declined. Jusy wondering if the room temp could be harming this drug and maybe why it doesnt seem to be working for me. Thanks in advance, Sutallee.
Avatar m tn He said that he has run out of options for finding the root cause and that I just have low t. He prescribed me androgel, which I started last week. I am on no other meds or supplements. My questions are: Any ideas what could be causing this? If I have no major symptoms, do I need to be on androgel? Any other tests I should have done?
Avatar n tn Hi there, Low testosterone can be a cause of low fertility in men. It can lead to low sperm counts, low motility, and even poor morphology. The cause of low testosterone can be related to primary hypogonadism when the problem is in the organs which affect sexual function or secondary or tertiary hypogonadism when the problem is related to the pituitary or hypothalamus. Treatment aims at finding the underlying cause and addressing the issue. Your doctor may prescribe testosterone replacement.

1487690 tn?1316760585 What does it mean when you dont get pregnant when you ovulated? Low sperm count? ?
Avatar m tn However in a case of a low testosterone level, the gonads and secondary sexual characteristics are examined to see if they have developed. A sperm count is done to see the status. Testosterone level is tested along with if need be thyroid and pituitary status to know other causes of low testosterone . Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that many things can affect the sperm count. Sperm take approximately 3 months to manufacture. You may have had an illness three months ago that affected you, or spent some time in a hot tub. Another possibility is that there could have been lab error. I would recommend repeating the level--in at least 3 days. We never make a diagnosis based upon one sperm count because they tend to fluctuate so much.
