Avatar m tn I was also starting on the new Nabido (testosterone) injection. I went back for a further sample in June 2010 and there was no sperm at all. My FSH level was 0. I discussed this with my consultant and he believed he could get it back and referred me to the fatility clinic.
623156 tn?1322865851 For men it helps with adequate levels of testosterone and sperm counts. Research has shown with 15 mgs a day in men it can increase semen and testosterone production, in women it can help ovulation and fertility. Natural resources of Zinc are fish, oysters, crab, turkey, chicken and beef. In the newsletter it was mentioned that there have been conflicting opinions about fertility boosting foods. I'm the ultimate optomist. It's seems to be a more wholistic approach.
Avatar f tn It plays a part in sperm production.
Avatar m tn A lower prolactin will cause an increase in testosterone, which can lead to increase sperm production.Clomiphene is known to increase gonadotropin secretion, which, in turn, may stimulate testosterone release and improve sperm output. Hormone values need to be monitored while on this medication and one should not stop the drug unless advised. Whether these two drugs can be taken together or not depends on your medical condition and indication of use of these drugs.

Avatar m tn As soon as I told my Endocrinologist he advised that I should cease TRT immediately and put me on HcG 1500UI twice a week due to the known pituitary disorder and the positive side effect of mimicking LH, in which would promote natural testosterone production thus causing a “jumpstart” on sperm production. I have also had scans on my testes and no obstructions or V veins were detected.
Avatar m tn I have read that a varicocele can contribute to low testosterone and a lower sperm count. As for your hubbies testosterone levels the ones that really matter are the free testosterone levels or the ones readily available for use. I have other symptoms of low testosterone too so I am working on that. I retested my blood and I am waiting on my results. Anyway good luck and do let me know. I'm curious about my options if i face the same situation.
Avatar m tn Hypothyroidism can cause low testosterone in men which can cause sperm production to fall, erectile dysfunction, drop in libido and numerous other health problems.
Avatar f tn Zinc is required for the production of testosterone and zinc content in the prostate gland and sperm is higher than in any other body tissues. A deficiency of zinc is associated with numerous sexual problems, including sperm abnormalities and prostate disease. Zinc helps to maintain semen volume and adequate levels of testosterone; keeping sperm healthy. 6.
1006003 tn?1256227415 Testosterone shots fixed him up, but ironically, taking testosterone this way decreases fertility (sperm development depends on a concentrated local supply of testosterone in the testes, so if you take shots, that local production decreases and sperm production is shut down). Incidentally, the investigations revealed a sperm count below one million, even before he began the shots.
Avatar m tn Clomid can work and is certainly worth a try when young. It can raise SHBG and result in little to no gain in Free Testosterone and therefore little to no improvements in feeling better. But it is always worth a first try. Remember to get SHBG tested and also estradiol. Clomid can also raise estradiol (estrogen). Both SHBG and estradiol bind to or use up testosterone leaving less of the "total T" available as free T to do work. You can take a drug to lower estradiol.
Avatar m tn t produce enough of the male hormone testosterone and no sperm are produced in the testicles. Hence it is very difficult to father a child. One option that may benefit men with minimal sperm production is a procedure called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). During ICSI, sperm is removed from the testicle with a biopsy needle and injected directly into the egg.
Avatar n tn t come out and I am scared I do not produce enough testosterone (I have sperm production and a streamline of hair is growing under my belly button.) Is my testosterone production low? I Am scared I will stop growing and will always remain physically small. Please help.
Avatar m tn Icing testicles is proven across the world to increase sperm motility, quantity as well as triple testosterone production in low-T men as well as solve varicocele veins. Anyone who tells you otherwise is just shilling to get you on meds and keep you infertile and make money off you.
6323719 tn?1380323699 Smoking impairs sperm count and motility, reduces sperm lifespan and alcohol lowers the production of sperm and of the male hormone testosterone .Ensure adequate intake of vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Zinc. Vitamins help in synthesis and maintenance of the normal sperms and also help in preventing clumping. For infection you may need a course of antibiotics. Consult a physician for more queries and concern. Keep me posted. Take care and regards!
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.
1139187 tn?1355706647 ve read indicates that long term testosterone replacement does shut down natural production which eventually leads to your balls getting smaller (testicular atrophy). Some reports suggest that if you discontinue t-replacement therapy there may be a way to stimulate natural production although not to the level it was prior. Chronic use may prevent that from happening. In my case, I had no choice and will probably be on replacement therapy for life.
282812 tn?1225110981 The thing that really bothers me about this thread is none of you seem to be trying to figure out why their testosterone is low. Testosterone is indicative sperm production, but not always. A varicocele can only be looked at as the cause if other causes are ruled out. Varicoceles are very common in men and do not always effect testosterone or sperm count. There are different stages of varicocele did someone tell you that is why his count is low? Has he had a complete test of all his hormones?
Avatar m tn My lh was a little low and my fsh was almost mid range. The endo told me fsh is responsible for sperm production and since I have gotten my wife pregnant twice it is unlikely a problem. He told me to try for about a year first. He also told me my testosterone is "normal" because my free or bioavailable level is fine and is over 2%. My prolactin was a little out of range so I am taking bromocriptine to bring it down he also said my testosterone will go up taking it.
Avatar m tn 0and hence low testosterone and all of the things that come with it. My testosterone was 340 in march, 270 in july and about 200 in Sept am am really alarmed. MRI reveals no brain tumor also no sudden increase in weight or lifestyle change.
Avatar n tn It allows these innovative products to copy exactly the natural molecules produced by the human body. The production of testosterone (the primary sexual hormone for both men and women) starts in the hypothalamus and pituitary of the brain which send out important chemicals to stimulate the natural production of hormones that are in turn perfectly balanced in a feedback loop to the very brain that initiated the hormone production.
Avatar m tn When I was trying to conceive, there were things they mentioned to my husband about sperm production which included not getting into hot tubs (temp did something to sperm production that was not great) as well as wearing boxers verses briefs. ?? But that is what our doctor said. good luck to you!
