Hyperthyroidism Can Effect Man Fertiliy
Does hyperthyroid affects man fertility? I heard some people recover from hyperthyroid will be hypothyroid, and that affects man testosterone?
Has some effects...: Dr. Stephan shaban has a detailed article at http://www.Ivf.Com/shaban.Html it says both hyper and hypothyroidism can alter sperm production. Hyperthyroidism affects both pituitary and testicular function through alterations in the amounts of releasing hormones from the pituitary (that influence testosterone production), and in increasing the conversion of androgens (male hormones) to estrogens. ...Read more
Thyroid & fertility: Thyroid meds are not gender-specific: same ones are used for both men & women. Both underactive & overactive thyroid can adversely affect male fertility; so treating these conditions can help restore normal function. Different meds are used for treating hypo- & hyperthyroidism. Discuss with your doc yur thyroid status & what meds you need. ...Read more
Inconclusive evidenc: The data on this are inconclusive. In 1 study, high caffeine use (>14 0.5-l bottles/week) and/or caffeine (>800 mg/day) was associated with reduced sperm concentration and total sperm count.

Shouldn't . . .: Thyroid controls metabolism but not sexual development or maturation. Pituitary controls both thyroid & testes but if he's only missing thyroid, then testes should be ok. However, if testosterone is low, need to figure out why. Low t might be due to testicular issue (coincident w/thyroid) or be due to pituitary problem (see above) or perhaps liver (via excess iron - hemochromatosis), etc. Go c doc. ...Read more
Yes: Alcohol use in men may have negative effects on sperm (decreased semen volume, movement, shape, and count), with inflammation and increased white blood cells in the semen. Alcohol intake is associated with lower levels of fuel (gonadotropins) from the brain and direct effects on the testes leading to lower testosterone. Interestingly, a specific component of red wine, myricetin may affect sperm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Hi. Please define hypoglycemia; is he a diabetic on insulin? If we are dealing with true hypoglycemia, there is no direct cause-and-effect relationship between hypoglycemia and infertility. Other reasons for his infertility need to be sought. There are conditions that could be the underlying cause of both, such as panhypopituitarism (very rare).

Hot Rocks!?: Many people believe that the varicocele increases the heat in the scrotum. The heat may be the cause of sperm damage. Not every varicocele causes a decrease in semen quality. Sperm motility is often most affected. Surgery or embolization can be helpful but often it is unclear if needed. Always check partner too. I like sperm function tests like acrosome reaction to help decide on treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a vasectomy negatively affect testosterone levels? If yes, could a reversal improve levels of testosterone?
No: The testes have two types of cellular structure. The leydig cells make testosterone and release it into the blood stream. The seminiferous tubules and sertoli cells mature and release spermatozoa into the vas deferens. Disrupting the transport of sperm cells out of the testicle has nothing to do with the production of testosterone by the testes. ...Read more
A suspect drug: Allopurinol helps halt cell division and cell division is critical for sperm production at 1000 sperm being produced per heartbeat.
