Have any doctors heard of using clomiphene citrate or anastrozole to boost a mans natural production of testosterone? If so is it safe and effective?

Let's back up: These are sometimes used to scam bodybuilders but I'm going to assume that your concern is rather with diminished libido despite your young age. If you have had a few serum testosterone levels actually low, this may be the problem; otherwise these won't help you. More important is that some smart physician screen you for prolactinoma, hemochromatosis & other important causes of lost libido. ...Read more

Hi I've spm cnt of 12 mill/ml and motility is 10% and taking semento 4 tabs /ay and clomiphene tab half each day, wd I b able to conceive? Thanks

Yes: Conception is still possible. You are not sterile, rather subfertile, which means a lower monthly chance of pregnancy. If the medications do not bring your sperm numbers closer to normal, or you don't conceive naturally, artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization would be your next options. Success of insemination would depend on your semen parameters. Good luck. ...Read more
