So what to do?
so injection small dosage of testosterone won't have negative influence on spermatozoid?
Brief Answer: No, it will have no negative influence on sperms. Detailed Answer: Testosterone will help improve the quality and quantity of sperms as your testosterone is already low. I would advise you to get the semen analysis done and use the long acting form of testosterone at 2 weekly interval. Regards

I attached sperm analysis. looks fine I think and I wanna keep that way so that's why I'm worry about taking testosterone. I know it will boost my libido rapidly but dont you think that first I should try to boost production of my own testosterone by taking together HCG with Clomid for some period of time?
Brief Answer: Go for pregnancy first Detailed Answer: Hi. Good to see your semen analysis, nice enough to go for having kids first before you take any of the medicines. Nothing is required except intravaginal ejaculation , which I expect you are having a capability of. It is better not to do hormonal manipulations until are really necessary and that too have to be done under an Expert's guidance only.

You should once consult an Endocrinologist as he can guide and treat you accordingly. Regards,
I told you from the beginning that I wanna have kids and first 2 answers were that I should inject testosterone and this won't have negative influence on sperm.
