Hormonal balance for men is important to keep everything inside the body functioning properly. When hormones become dysregulated, unwanted symptoms may occur, including the inability to have a child. Thankfully, there are a number of hormone management options for men to help correct this issue.

Hormone Management for Men with Dr. Justin Houman in Los Angeles

Proper hormone management is crucial for maintaining male fertility and overall health. When the pituitary gland fails to secrete follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), it can disrupt testicular function, leading to infertility and low testosterone levels.

Impact of Low Testosterone on Male Fertility

Low testosterone can significantly affect male fertility, primarily by reducing sperm production and quality. This decrease can make natural conception challenging. Additionally, low testosterone can lead to erectile dysfunction and a reduced sex drive, further complicating efforts to conceive. Other health issues like obesity and diabetes, often associated with low testosterone, can also negatively impact fertility.

How Low Testosterone Affects Fertility

  • Sperm Count and Quality: Low testosterone can result in fewer and less healthy sperm.
  • Erectile Dysfunction: Difficulty in maintaining an erection can hinder successful intercourse.
  • Decreased Libido: A lower sex drive can reduce sexual activity, impacting the chances of conception.

Managing Testosterone Levels for Fertility

Balancing testosterone levels while preserving fertility is complex but achievable with the right medications. Dr. Justin Houman offers expert hormone management treatments in Los Angeles, including:

  • Clomid (Clomiphene): This off-label medication stimulates the body to produce more testosterone, enhancing sperm production. Typically prescribed for six months, Clomid can improve energy levels, mood, and sexual function.

  • HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin): Often combined with Clomid, HCG is a synthetic form of LH that helps restore normal testosterone production.

  • Anastrozole: A non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor that prevents the conversion of testosterone to estradiol, helping to maintain a healthy testosterone-to-estradiol ratio, beneficial for treating male infertility.

Hormone Management Outlook

Hormone management for fertility is available for men to help improve chances of conceiving. Your first step toward treatment will be to see your urologist who will determine whether you or your partner is infertile. Checking a semen analysis is a vital step in this process. Depending on the outcome of those tests, you may be able to benefit from hormone management treatments. Your urologist can help you and your partner explore the best treatment options to help you achieve your family goals.
