Androgel low sperm count

Common Questions and Answers about Androgel low sperm count


Avatar f tn My husband is 36 and has very low testosterone (<150). He was on Androgel for about 9 months, and stoped taking it because he noticed no difference in how tired he was or his libido. He wants to go on injections, because we have heard from a lot of other people that those work the best due to immediate relief. We are aware that there will be a few days when he'll be feeling sluggish again due to the wear-off.
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 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.

Avatar m tn Certain vitamin, mineral, and hormone deficiencies ca also cause a sperm count to be low. Even if these all turn out to be normal, a low sperm count is not that uncommon - even at your age. It may make having a child more difficult, but there are many things you and your dr. can discuss to help raise your sperm count.

384464 tn?1217899843 I hope I make sense as I am posting this..... Just question about low sperm count in men. It took my bf and I almost 14 yrs. to make our miricle baby (due next month). When I met him he had mentioned that his count was low and I never really thought much about it because I didn't really plan on having any more kids after my two. I mean the thought of becoming pregnant was nice , but didn't see it happening. Well my question is how can I raise my chances of having another little bean?

1748995 tn?1427334864 My husband went for a sperm analysis and the doctor says everything is normal except his count & low sperm concentration. His count was 6.2 million. Normal is 40 to 60, so he is quite low! I am so worried, will I even have a chance of pregnancy now??? I know you only need one sperm, but even with men with normal sperm counts there is only a 20 - 25% each month to get pregnant! I am so freaked!! Does anyone know anyone who has got pregnant with a husband with low sperm count??

Avatar f tn well i was so excited doing follistim this month responded well, went for iui on sept 12, what a slap in face, we knew my dh had a low low sperm count but we have conceived naturally with our first child after 2yrs, this time it has been 3yrs. we tried clomid no help , so we went the shot and iui route, and dh has been on clomid. his count sunday was only 236,000 should be over 2 million, so they said we were wasting our money even gave us check back til we see if positive.
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.
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.
