I just told DH to stop taking the testosterone pills!!! AGH!! This is why he is not allowed to research anything. Testosterone dramatically reduces sperm count and can over time make men sterile. DO NOT buy this for your other half. I swear this man would be lost without me....

I was kinda wondering...

For men with Low testosterone, supplementation might be necessary. But it's not like with us... one wrong move and they're temporarily sterile!

So glad that you caught that. A lot of men are prescribed clomid to help with low T. Hopefully DH is ok.

****Update****

So the pills are a testosterone booster. Not actual testosterone. So i think this is better. DH said that he feels better so we will see.
