How Do I Know If My Husband Has Low Testostrone
My husband has Low Testostrone. His Blood pressure was 91/56 today. He is extremely fatigued and urinates frequently. What could the issue be?
Depends . . .: Low testosterone doesn't always imply low sperm count although latter does make it more difficult to impregnate one's partner. So if fertility is an issue along w/low t, 1st get a sperm count. If low, consider using (way) off-label hcg, Clomiphene or tamoxifen to increase both t & sperm. Whatever you do, don't fix low t w/t which will only render you really & truly infertile if you weren't already. ...Read more

Other hormones are measured to confirm this or pursue the cause including lh, prolactin and free testosterone. ...Read more
Go see your doctor: Well, go see his doctor. My bias, but preferably a family doc (or general internist) to start. Lots of other causes that need to be addressed before working on low Testosterone. After fixing other causes of symptoms, if he truly has low T, then need to decide whether future fertility is desired. If yes, then avoid testosterone replacement therapy at all costs as TRT will cause infertility. ...Read more
