testicle shrinkage

Sep 17, 2012

if i take HCG shots will my left testicle affect by mumps orchitis return to normal size

Response from Mr. Vergel

This is what Dr Scally, an expert on hormones, told me when I asked him your question:

"I recently had a case of primary hypogonadism due to mumps orchitis. He was infertile. hCG administration not only increased his T level but also increased spermatogenesis to perform ICSI. He is off Nebido. Obviously, to go this route requires an hCG challenge test."
