Hormone deficiency?: Hair growth is dependent on male hormone, testosterone which is produced in the testes. I would be concerned about his hormonal balance which can also affect fertility. But he needs to be seen by an endocrinologist for further testing of hir hormone levels and sperm counts in order to answer your question about his infertility.
