testicular atrophy

Sep 22, 2011

hello doctor, I am positive patient in effective treatment currently carry a year in testosterone replacement therapy (Nebido, 1000mgs), testicular atrophy, I've noticed that I can do to avoid or recover the size? 1. cycling hormone therapy? 2. use of clomiphene or human chorionic gonadotropin? 3. that dose?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Getting off testosterone is not advisable. You will remain with low testosterone for several weeks and your hypogonadism symptoms will emerge again.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is used to increase testicular size in men who have had some testicular size decrease due to testosterone replacement. There are several protocols being used by doctors, but none has been proven better than the others.

This is an excerpt from my book: Testosterone : A Man's Guide, available on :

I hope this helps
