increased sperm count after testosterone pellets
bullbfd posted:
Im 29 years old and have a test level of 70. My endo is sending me to a urologist to start me on testosterone implantable pellets. Now when my wife and I are ready to try to have a baby will hcg help my count go back up? My endo said once i start test therapy I will always need it and It will cause my sperm count to go down and I might have to do AI to get her pregnant. Haven't seen the urologist yet but i am sure they will say I can get off the pellets and start hcg or something temporarily to have a baby. help please

Depending on what is going on to cause that low testosterone... Hypogonadism can be treated with the HCG injections and arimidex to help boost sperm production in men with low testosterone.

Have you had a semen analysis to see where your sperm production levels stand?

Sounds like you are reaching out to the right specialists to work on getting this hormonal imbalance in check and keeping fertility as a main goal.

Thanks for sharing, good luck and keep us posted.
