Dr. E’s Health Update: Hormonal Treatment for Low Testosterone

Men suffering from “low T” (low testosterone) and infertility have new treatment options.

Hi friends, 

In the context of male infertility and hormone therapy, HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and Clomid (clomiphene citrate) can both be used to address certain issues related to low testosterone levels. However, they work in different way and have distinct applications for male fertility and hormone management:

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin):

HCG is a hormone that can mimic luteinizing hormone (LH) in the body. It is commonly used to stimulate the production of testosterone in men, particularly in cases where the body's natural production of testosterone is insufficient.
HCG can help stimulate the testes to produce more testosterone, making it useful in treating conditions such as hypogonadism and low testosterone levels. It can also prevent testicular shrinkage that can occur during testosterone replacement therapy.

Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate):

Clomid is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) that can be used off-label to stimulate the production of testosterone in men. It works by blocking estrogen receptors in the brain, leading to an increase in the production of LH and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This increase in LH and FSH can stimulate the testes to produce more testosterone.
Clomid is often considered as an alternative to HCG for men with low testosterone levels, as it acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to increase the body's own natural production of testosterone.
