Hi well come to HCM
hgh is produced in pitutory gland which helps for development of muscle and
body mass.In case of your husband it was given as a replacement therapy from out
side since his body [pitutory] was not producing it which was needed for the body.
So i should not have any adverse effect even on fertility
