Testosterone injections

My DH has been on the injections for at least a year. When he was diagnosed with low t his count was 150 so now they have it up at a good level and still he's getting his shot. They said his swimmers were at zero. So We went to gnc to see what they had and found a couple of things he could take. So should he wait till he's done with his shots to start taking this stuff or what? If anyone has any info please let me know. Thanks

Those testosterone injections should be the cause of no sperm and you might need to start HCG injections to restart your own production and get your sperm count to return. Discuss this option with your urologist.

Not sure what supplements you purchased from GNC but if just a good vitamin regimen start immediately because it does take months to see the benefits.

Was just wondering if he should wait till he's done with his testosterone shots before starting anything like the vitamins from gnc would it be a waste to start them if he's still taking his shots? Thanks

No, not a waste. Get body supplies with all the beneficial components from the supplements so when that sperm production kicks back in the testicles are ready to put out good quality sperm.
