Male reproductive hormonal profile
Men with a sperm count less than 10 million/ml may have a hormonal problem and need to have the following hormones checked: FSH, LH, Testosterone, Prolactin. Estrogen is also checked in overweight men in this male reproductive hormonal profile as they may have high levels of Estrogen.
Identifying such problems is important because some of these problems may respond to treatment thus restoring fertility, some may be a sign of an underlying serious health problem such as a brain lesion.
Men who have low testosterone may need Testosterone replacement therapy after completing their fertility treatment for their general health and well being.
