Male Fertility Drugs

Male Infertility Medication

Male infertility can affect a couple’s ability to conceive. Many infertility clinics advise people coming in for treatment to arrive as a couple so that both partners can be evaluated. Male infertility, once diagnosed, may be treatable through medication to improve sperm count and quality. Here are some of the common male infertility medications:

Aromatase Inhibitors

High estrogen levels in males can reduce sex drive and hurt sperm concentration and motility. With a low sperm count, your chances of impregnating a woman are low. MCRM Fertility experts might utilize aromatase inhibitors such as letrozole or anastrazole.

Aromatase inhibitors reduce estrogen production.  This leads to a decrease in estrogen levels which induce sperm production. A higher sperm count improves male fertility and enhances success chances when trying to get pregnant.

Clomiphene Citrate

Our MCRM fertility experts may recommend Clomiphene citrate, Clomid, to improve sperm count. Clomid is mainly prescribed to women to enhance ovulation, but it can be used for men.

Clomiphene citrate is an estrogen receptor blocker that prevents steroid hormones from binding to estrogen receptors in the body. This leads to a rise in Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing hormone (LH) in the pituitary gland. Higher LH and FSH hormone levels promote testosterone increase which improves sperm production.

Dopamine agonists

Too much prolactin in the body can cause infertility in both men and women. Bromocriptine and Cabergoline are dopamine agonists that reduce prolactin levels. Once the prolactin level lowers, your body will naturally start producing more sperm, helping reverse infertility in men.

Vitamin Supplements

Infertility experts at MCRM Fertility may recommend vitamin supplementation with several agents including the anti-oxidant Coenzyme Q10.

Antibiotics

Infection in the semen is sometimes suspected when an excess of white blood cells are observed.  Antibiotics in selected cases may be beneficial to improve semen analysis parameters.

Human Chorionic Gonadotrophins

Human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) triggers luteinizing hormone production. LH improves testosterone release and testicular volume, enhancing sperm production.

Our fertility experts offer HCG medication as injections, so they act faster. By increasing the sperm count, you can comfortably boost male fertility.

All fertility medication can have side effects depending on the patient’s body. To help avoid severe side effects, you should be transparent with our fertility experts about allergies, medical conditions, or current medication.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Our fertility experts strongly discourage testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) in patients contemplating or struggling with fertility due to its adverse impact on male reproduction.
