Yes, you may, but...: First, decide if you really need boosting testosterone level by a clinical comprehensive assessment + physical exam, especially on testes + timely testing T-level with LH with.without FSA at least. Second, select one of three options among doing nothing, T-injection or T-gel, and Clomid (clomiphene). So, ask doc timely so to deduce right Dx for right Rx & care. ...Read more

6y no baby: I would say after 6y of trying that you should have IVF. IUI can be tried, but less likely to work. You state you have been pregnant before, but if you can't sustain pregnancy pregnancy due to uterine factors, then your only option may be surrogate. See a fertility specialist regarding all these possibilities. ...Read more

No big difference: Studies show pregnancy rates are identical starting cc on cd 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. The main difference is starting later its less likely to have a persistent cyst from the past cycle. For patients not monitored by ultrasound cd 5 may be a better choice, with monitoring it makes little-to- no difference. ...Read more

Could male taking clomiphene for years have attenuation of endogenous LH production from pituitary?

Could male taking clomiphene for years have attenuation
of endogenous LH production from pituitary?

Probably not: Clomiphene works by blocking estrogen at the pituitary. The pituitary sees less estrogen, and makes more lh. More LH means that the leydig cells in the testis make more testosterone. I don't see how Clomid (clomiphene) would cause the LH production to attenuate. ...Read more

Witch more safe for low testosterone at man 49 years old androgel or clomid (clomiphene)  ?

Unknown: There are no good long term studies looking at the safety of testosterone or clomiphene in men. However, clomiphene works in a more "natural" way to increase testosterone levels, and therefore may be safer. You should always do multiple baseline tests for testosterone, and have clear cut symptoms associated with testosterone deficiency before starting either medication. ...Read more
