Extremely High Testosterone & Male Infertility
1 Replies
Amado - June 14

When I was about 5 years old, I was diagnosed with precocious puberty. Precocious puberty is when a child's body begins changing into that of an adult (puberty) too soon. My parents sent me to a pediatric endocrinologist. At that time I had extremely elevated testosterone. The endocrinologist immediately think I have a tumor or some sort of cancer. I have been through every possible scan, and there are no abnormalities.
Since then, I was regularly monitored to track my testosterone, height, testicular size and physical characteristics. I was treated with to lower the testosterone and prolong my growing years.
I’m 25 years old now and my testosterone levels have been unchecked for 11 years. My wife and I are attempting to conceive and we had no success. I went to a Urologist and he thought I was on some sort of testosterone supplement and was very critical of my honesty. He also thought I might have a tumor. I went back through ultrasound testing to confirm that everything was normal.
I am now working with a male infertility specialist. The specialist ran the same tests and received the same results.
I am asking for opinions. We do not have the funds for IVF. The specialist said there are no side effects of maintaining high testosterone, which I find hard to believe. Keep in mind I am a very healthy young male otherwise. I have been an athlete my whole life and maintain good diet and exercise.
My initial thought was to lower the testosterone and signal to the testicles to start producing sperm. From what I know, It is the high natural testosterone that is suppressing the body from feeling the need to produce sperm The doctor, however, thinks otherwise.

The level of testosterone is normally high at puberty. As one age, the level starts declining. It is an important hormone that helps to improve sex drive, fat distribution, sperm production, bone density and red blood cell production. So since you have a high level of testosterone, I think you should not even be thinking about IVF because your sexual desire and performance is high and guarantees you spontaneous erection. This eliminates the possibility of suffering from erectile dysfunction. So as far as I am concerned, you really don’t need to worry since a high level of testosterone is, in fact, a plus for you.
