Hi all, I have some questions about our specific situation that I could not seem to find an answer for…
Background: partner is currently on TRT; 125mg Test-E p/w, 1mg Arimidex p/w & 500iu HCG p/w.
Last test that he had done, he had a sperm count of <1million per deciliter(?), anyway it was VERY low. At this stage, he had only just introduced the HCG. With this in mind, the doc is going to retest once he has been using the HCG for approx 5 months ie enough time to determine if the HCG will restore sperm production to a sufficient level to actually get me pregnant…hence why we’re having it tested.
Now, the tricky part comes in that he wants to do a cycle of 500mg/pw test prop for 4-6 weeks. So my questions are:
- Will doing this affect his sperm production, or is this independant of the current dose of HCG?
- If, when he is retested, his sperm count is still too low, we will be getting fertility treatment in the form of adding FSH (which apparently makes sperm grow??)- will doing this cycle counteract the FSH and keep sperm from growing if we did it at the same time?
If these questions don’t make sense please let me know!
