Will the testosterone injections increase the sperm count?

my husband and i have been trying for 2 yrs for our third baby. My husband was told he had a low sperm count and has since had an mri scan which indicated that his pituatry gland was not functioning. He is to be given testosterone injections every 3 weeks for 4 months. His consultant says this will increase our chances of pregnancy but I have been told otherwise. What is the success rate for this treatment?

Hi,

If testosterone is the only issue, you need to see the result for now. Doing a sperm complete test can help diagnose the cause. If other causes are involved (infection, obstruction, vitamin deficiency), you need to change the treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. S. R. Raveendran, Sexologist
