None: There is no clear evidence that when men with male infertility, take any type of tablets, their female partners get pregnant at higher rate than those who did not receive these tablets. For the vast majority of male factor infertility patients, medication or supplements are not associated with significant improve in fertility.

Anastrozole may help: Some men with low testosterone (t) levels and high estrogen (estradiol or e2) levels may benefit from aromatase inhibitor pills such as Anastrozole (off label use). Aromatase converts t into estrogen, and overweight men have increased aromatase. Weight loss also helps. The Anastrozole should raise t and lower e2 levels, but rarely do we see big improvements in sperm, often only modest improvement.

Reframe question: Only a small number of men benefit from medication to improve fertility. If the man does not have reproductive hormones, then replacement (injections) can allow him to produce sperm. Some men who take steroids have few or no sperm - stop hormones and sperm return. Usually poor quality sperm do not benefit from tablets. See a specialist for more details. Best wishes.

Male Infertility: The treatment for male infertility depends on its cause. Sperm analysis and an examination by a urologist may determine the diagnosis. Testicular trauma and temperature changes may affect the quantity and quality of sperm formation.
