Common Questions and Answers about Role of testosterone in spermatogenesis


Avatar f tn Only FSH being high confirms some deficiency in the spermatogenesis functioning of the testis and the steps you are following appears to be in the right direction.Please keep us posted with your progress. All the best, Solace.
Avatar m tn Since FSH level is normal, I feel that in your case low testosterone is affecting the sperm production. Testosterone may be low due high estrogen level, which you have not yet measured. Some aromatise inhibitor drugs should be able to reduce estrogen and increase testo and in turn may help spermatogenesis. I always felt that in your case reduction of weight should finally solve all problems. You should consult a good fertility clinic and they should be able to find a solution to your problem.
285777 tn?1231609844 It may be due to some problem with the testo receptors in the brain, or due to reduced level of free testo in circulation. So you should also check the free testo in the blood. Free testo can reduce if your liver produces more of SHBG. You can also a test for SHBG. It is also better to do the whole tests in another Lab to rule out any errors in measurement. As far as sperm production is concerned, it is entirely done in the testes, based on FSH and testo level.
Avatar m tn Hi, The flu prior to the testing would explain the high level of mature lymphocytes in the blood. Did you take any medications during the period for flu / or are you taking any other medications/drugs that might have a negative effect on spermatogenesis? You should explain all these details to your doctor. It is said that Inhibin B test along with Anti-Mullerian Hormone test is a good index for spermatogenesis. Also FSH level is importat to know.
Avatar n tn It is the effect of hormones on the hair follicle that produces male pattern baldness. Testosterone, a hormone that is present in high levels in males after puberty, is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. DHT has an adverse affect on the hair follicles. Acting on a hormone receptor on the hair follicle it slows down hair production and produces weak, shorter hair, sometimes it stops hair growth from the follicle completely.
Avatar m tn m def bringing that up with my urologist since he suggested using Axiron since I have not of the symptoms for low testosterone along with my present level being 282 and they told me normal levels are above 340. I'm not sure what HRT is though. The Axiron I am on right now is samples until my follow up visit in April. I don't have an official script yet since he orig prescribed fortesta but my insurance needs authorization for it.
Avatar m tn We do have sex but I could not able to penetrate ever since we are married. I tried different medical solutions but none of them worked. My testosterone levels were low but they went to normal ranges when I took some testosterone level boosting injections prescribed by my physician. But still could not penetrate. All we do is masturbate each other at the end. I know its a serious problem and I want to have a baby of our own. Whenever I tried to penetrate the erection starts to fell off.
Avatar f tn Vitamin A is important in testosterone production. Good sources of this in a healthy diet are the dark green leafy vegetables, salmon, and red and orange fruits and vegetables. Salmon has an added benefit in that it reduces a chemical in the blood stream called sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). When testosterone encounters SHBG in the blood it is effectively mopped up and taken out of circulation. If you are trying to increase your testosterone there are certain foods you should avoid.
Avatar m tn Others are more into attaching weights to their testicles and causing a high amount of tension in all the tensile material in the scrotum / testicles / cords themselves. I've even see videos where a cattle prod or some type of electrical device was used to shock the testicles.
Avatar f tn Libido in both men and women is related closely to the level of testosterone in the blood (yes women have testosterone produced largely by the adrenal glands and men have so-called female hormones in their system). Testosterone level in the blood can be increased by a number of medications (androgel applied to the skin of the stomach, shots in the buttocks, etc.) all of which require a doctor's prescription.
Avatar n tn Hello, Peyronie’s disase is a connective tissue disorder involving the growth of fibrous plaques in the soft tissue of the penis. These plaques cause the penis to be bent. Genetic susceptibility is thought to play a role and studies suggest a link with low testosterone levels. 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.
Avatar f tn 2015 it was my ovulating day and I had sex on that day and 3 days after on 03 . 02.02.
Avatar n tn so they are not the germ cells ,which make the sperm ,but are only the nature cells,is this correct,or can they be programmed to produce sperm .
Avatar f tn From what I've read this hormonal medication is not a contraceptive so you can get pregnant while taking it. If you do get pregnant, you should stop taking it. Hormonal medications can cause melasma in some women. As far as the receding hairline, it's not unusual to lose some hair when ovarian hormones switch from their reproductive role to their menopausal role / level of hormones. Taking hormones seems to help some women's hair but not others.
Avatar n tn The role of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone in muscle growth is not completely understood, however, it is known that low levels of both of these hormones in an elderly male can lead to muscle weakness and loss of muscle mass and conversely that increasing these levels cause an increase in muscle mass and strength. This medication could be contributing to your inability to gain muscle, however, there is no way to tell if it is the exact cause.
Avatar n tn what is the role of progesterone in invitro fertilization? I just had a transfer done 3 days ago. I have read that progesterone is not supposed to be given while pregnant or while trying to get pregnant, yet, my doctor has me injecting myself with 1 ml per day, plus vaginal inserts of endometrin four times per day. Is this normal procedure?

Avatar f tn Fortunately I found a suppliment that releases bound testosterone. You can have a normal testosterone level but if alot of it is bound up to protein it does u no good . The supplement is Funugreek. It releases bound testosterone. I use and it works, test proved it, liquid is the best!
Avatar n tn Due to having lost my left testicle and having had repeated infections in both testicles my testosterone levels after the loss of my left were quite low. The testosterone is supposed to help with sex drive but also to maintain body mass. I asked the urologist about possible shrinkage and he sort of dismissed it, and told me that the testosterone should help to maintain things. I hope that this information is helpful for you. God bless.
Avatar m tn Hi, OK just how long ago did we stop the smoking and drinking, if its only been a short time then you still need some time, you could try some Tribulus its a herb that will boost your testosterone, lift your libido and kick your energy levels, add into this some Cayenne, mix this with some tomato paste and thin it down with olive oil, to the heat you can stand, and start making yourself some Green tea with honey and lemom, and a very good thing to add in to this is Ginger, Fresh is best, I keep
368646 tn?1208393887 Researchers are concerned that DHEA supplements may cause high levels of estrogen or testosterone in some people. This is important because testosterone may play a role in prostate cancer, and higher levels of estrogen are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. It is not yet known for certain if supplements of estrogen and testosterone, or supplements of DHEA, also increase the risk of developing these types of cancer.
Avatar m tn They were tested when I was 18, and were both in the 5-6 range (i.e. in the middle of the normal ranges). That was 10 years ago so who knows what they are now. I'm sure they are higher, as my test levels have fallen even further as you can see. My vision hasn't deteriorated. I did have an aura before the onset of my first ever migraine last month, which scared me as I had never experienced that before. Apparently the onset of migraine is consistent with underactive thyroid too.
Avatar m tn It turns out that mature bull elephants play a key role in the elephant society, which is highly complex and bears striking resemblance to human society. Young adolescent male elephants undergo dramatic surges in testosterone as they enter into sexual maturity (like humans). These high hormone levels are linked to aggressive behavior. It is not unknown for male elephants of this age to kill and rape rhinoceroses, for example.
1369218 tn?1282423884 I am seeing a new endo in a few weeks. I am low in progesterone, but was told it can cause testosterone to rise if you take supplements. I already have the hair growth thing going on too. My testosterone is elevated at times and normal other times. My periods are doing better since eating gluten free though. I was clotting so bad a few months ago I became anemic. I just feel like a big ball of a mess. I cannot seem to get it all to work right anymore. I used to be able to lose weight.
