masculinity 300x200We all know how vital testosterone is for establishing masculinity and preserving health in the short term. However,  it is becoming more apparent that experiencing issues with testosterone levels and fertility earlier in life can impact one's health later in life. In a study produced by the academic publication Fertility and Sterility, evidence has been provided that shows that men that have issues with conception and sexual health earlier in life are more prone to a variety of health issues later in life. This study was a data-analysis conducted by Stanford University, in which 9,400 male patients were evaluated. Patients were chosen based on select criteria: All patients were between the ages of thirty and fifty. All patients went to a fertility clinic. Among these men, patients were more likely to experience health issues such as Hypertension, skin issues, heart disease, and vascular ailments than the general population, if their fertility issues were the result of inadequate sperm-quality. A study such as this suggests that having one's sperm health analyzed is not only an essential step for men with fertility issues, but may also be an important step in the analysis of total health and wellness, and, as such, may … Read more »

sperm count analysis 209x300It may seem simple, but the process of conception is somewhat complicated even for men. For a man to conceive, some thresholds must be met: A man must have healthy sperm, capable of fertilization. This requires the adequate release of testosterone, as well as other hormones such as luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone. That sperm has to be able to mix with semen and pass through the tubes of the vas deferens without obstruction. He must produce a sufficient amount of sperm to have a significant chance of conception. The lower a man's sperm count is, the harder it will be for him to get his partner pregnant. If a man produces fewer than 39 million sperm per orgasm or 15 million sperm per milliliter, he is very likely to have issues with conception. That sperm must have functional mobility. It is normal that a small portion of sperm will have issues moving correctly, but the higher that this percentage is, the less likely that healthy sperm will make it successfully to the egg.

Preventing Infertility and Testicular Shrinkage with HCG Injections

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

testicle shrinkage varicocele disease 300x199Preventing Testicular Shrinkage with HCG (For Men Undergoing Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Low-T) One of the most embarrassing and frustrating issues associated with either aging in men or testosterone restoration for men is testicular atrophy. There are many reasons why testicles shrink; one has to do with the natural aging process in men. Also, the testes produce less testosterone as a result of the body receiving a flush of testosterone from an outside source (when undergoing testosterone therapy), and this causes the testes to reduce their function significantly, and this also causes the testicles to shrink dramatically. Some studies have indicated that HCG has helped men improve their fertility, because of how it stimulates the testes and prevents shrinkage. HCG Keeps the Male Testicles Nice and Full! Many men choose to live with this symptom of testosterone decline, but you would likely be happy to know that there is a way to preserve the appearance of the testicles and prevent testicular atrophy via Human Chorionic Gonadotropin supplementation. Some studies have indicated HCG is a potent fertility medication that can help both men and women conceive more readily, but is also highly effective in preventing the shrinkage of the testicles.
