Opioid testosterone: Opioid induced supression of testosterone is common. You will need to be placed on a testosterone supplement (like androgel, testoplex, fortesta). Your levels will have to be checked again in about 3-4 months.

Depends. : Hcg or Clomiphene citrate may work. And wean off opiates.
