Androgel and sperm count

Common Questions and Answers about Androgel and 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.
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 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.
Avatar f tn I started using Androgel because of depression, hair loss, shaving every 3 days (which is good!), atrophying of all muscles and my bone density dropped. I started Androgel 1.62% and everything improved greatly Good luck and do this only with doctors approval.
Avatar m tn Sometimes Alt, Ast become higher than normal because of the medication you are taking. In your case, it could be "prednisone". After you stop it, it will be normal again. It's not hepatitis. If you want to know whether you have Hep B, check Hbsag and Hbsab Hope it helps.
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 n tn Hello, A deficiency of certain nutrients, such as selenium, zinc and folic acid or Vitamin C, intake of antibiotics such as erythromycin, gentamicin and nitrofurantoin, sulfasalazine, cimetidine, spironolactone and methotrexate can decrease sperm count. The negative impact on sperm count stops once the medicine is no longer being taken. It is essential to have a healthy balanced diet everyday rich in all essential vitamins, minerals.

Avatar n tn My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for over a year. I have gone to a doctor and they can't find anything that would cause infertility. Should my husband go in and be tested?
Avatar n tn I just wanted to add that I really have no clue where the cutoff would be as far as sperm count/motility and doing an IUI. I just know that my OB/GYN said that had my husband had a low sperm count then there were things that they could have tried like concentrating it and washing it, etc... We never got that far....
Avatar n tn s case? How much sperm count and what was the motility and what medicine he has taken etc.
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.
1491327 tn?1313569112 Dear Mohan, My wife and I had the same issues with low sperm count. I read through many forums and realized the importance of some vitamins for the quantity and the quality of the sperm. I decided to take Vitamale. I took 2 tablets 3 times a day and after 3 months the results were amazing. My wife is now pregnant for 9 weeks. I bought it on Hope that helps. Gil.
Avatar f tn How can I improve my husbands sperm count. He has his analysis done and it was not good. It was 11.4 but he didn't wait his 2 days like he was suppose to. So I am not sure if the counts r right which I know they r not. So how do I help him improve it. He won't go and get it retested he has already told me that. So how do I improve it?
Avatar n tn It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
1491327 tn?1313569112 As far as I know, it will only affect your sperm count temporarily. If you and your wife decide to try for a baby at some point, it might be a good idea to let the sperm count replenish by not having intercourse or ejaculate every day.
Avatar f tn We just did an IUI on Friday and I had a question about sperm count. Here is my husbands... Before Wash Volume - 3.9 ml Count 358 million sperms/ml WBC's <1,000 WBCs/cmmm Morphology 80% Normal Motility 3 % 4t, 20% 3t, 32% 2t, 5% 1t, 40% x motility Total Motile count 837.7 million sperms Total normal motile count 670.2 million sperms After wash - excellent concentration and motility I've got no idea how to read this - but my concern is the total number.
Avatar f tn My husband is not wanting to be embarrassed going into a place knowing that the nurses/workers will know what he is doing. How does this work when a sperm count is needed? Can it be done at home and taken in? Can I help him? Does it have to be done in an office? Please help so I can ease my husbands mind. Ty in advance!
1105753 tn?1374287348 Does anyone know if the amount of sperm a man produces has anything to do with sperm count? My DH seems to have a small amount (approx tsp amount). It seems smaller than my first husband. I don't want to talk to my DH about it (comparing and all) but I was just curious. I am over 40 and my first child was not planned so TTC seems so hard now! Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
1491327 tn?1313569112 well, i would say it can reduce the counts if u do daily. so just dont do that often. you can wait for 2 days then have intercouse. we are also ttc im thinking to chek my hubby's count also. we skip a day. that way we get good sperms(i blive). n' also you can use briefs insted of tight underwear. it would be better if u take men's multi vitamins. or ask abt this to ur dr. you can also eat banana n' almond n' nuts.. some people say to avoid bitter, spicy n' acidic foods.
Avatar m tn My boyfriend and I just found out that he has NO DEAD OR ALIVE SPERM IN HIS SEMAN. Does anybody know how to fix this or what we are supposed to do to concieve a child?
Avatar m tn My question is, shortly after I began Testosterone Replacement Therapy and am using Androgel daily. Is this an issue that I should be concerned with in regards to the CSCR? Or is it really corticosteriods that are a problem? This a concern to me since I have noticed a significant improvment in my overall general well being since using Androgel.
Avatar f tn s better to have sex every other night rather than every night because every night decreases sperm count.
Avatar m tn motility is 50 % plz advice me for increase sperm count.
Avatar n tn My Dr said that due to low sperm count we have to go for IVF, no way to increase sperm count. Should I consult another one ?
