Hello guys. I am a 39 year old male. I had been on 1.5 ML of Test CYP for a little over a year. My wife and I decided we wanted to have a child, so I had a semen analysis done two weeks ago. The analysis revealed that I had a 0 sperm count.
The doc made me stop the test cold turkey, which has been a mf to say the least. Wednesday I had another semen analysis and blood work done. My count was zero and my testosterone was now at 130, it was running around 600 while on trt.
The doctor called today and is starting me on 50mg of Clomid per day. I have two children from my previous marriage, 14 and 10 years of age.
What chance do I have of my sperm count coming back? How long will I have to remain on Clomid?
Over the last year and a half I have been hitting the gym regularly, lost 50 pounds and gained muscle mass when on the injections. Will Clomid give me that extra zeal that the test cyp did?
Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated guys. [/quote]
This is very subjective.
Clomid is indeed used in male infertility issues.
I don’t think your doctor plans to keep the dosage 50mg for longer than couple weeks without rest period. You need to know there can be side effects including blurness of vision and can lead to permanent damage to vision, if you experience this you need to stop immediately and contact doctor. It’s rare but it can and have happened. Other side effects are mood swings, much like our beloved wifes so nothing we wouldn’t had seen or experience.
Clomid increases sperm count and mobility.
The fertility success rate is impossible to say it depends on your partner too, but studies show everything from 14% to 36% ( highest being with antioxidant treatment with vitamin-e ).
It’s not magic drug that will guarantee you child, none of the studies i’ve seen suggests even 50% chance, so be prepared to try for the baby for quite a bit if you don’t get lucky. Chances are also that it doesn’t boost your fertility as that is reported also in some cases.
Wish you and your family best of luck in your baby endeavours and life.
