Protecting fertility in patients on Testosterone

Dr. Savage recently attended the Androgen Society Conference in New Orleans. The conference was attended by many of the leading Andrologists in the world. One of the hot topics was protecting fertility in patients on Testosterone.

Preferably a sperm count should be done prior to Testosterone treatment in the patient where fertility is important . The general consensus was that HCG injectins 500 iu (international units) 3 times a week will preserve most patients fertility when given with their testosterone treatment. However, if fertility is the top priority i.e. the patient and their partner are trying to get pregnant then testosterone should be stopped and HCG at a high dose of 3000 iu 3 times a week plus Clomifene is the recommended regime.
