Welcome to Healthcare Magic
For what reason has he been taking these shots. Steroid shots have not been directly implicated in lowering sperm count unless he was taking high dose for a long time. He may need to stop it for a few months for regaining normal body function. Nothing can be said about the chances of conception unless his semen analysis and hormone levels are assessed.
