How HCG Injections Can Combat Male Infertility

While creating a family seems simple enough — after all humans are biologically wired to do so — fertility issues plague 15% of couples in the United States. Problems with fertility are very common, and complex, and can stem from male infertility, female infertility, or a combination of both. Frustratingly enough, nearly a third of fertility problems stem from causes unknown.

If we find that the problem may lie within your testosterone and/or sperm production, we have good news. We can fight hormones with hormones — namely the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone, or hCG.

At Active Future, under the experienced guidance of Dr. Thomas Nabity and Tina Pawlich, RN, we help our patients with all areas of their health, both inside and out. Through our innovative use of hormone therapies and regenerative medicine, we tackle everything from chronic pain to aesthetic concerns. As part of our suite of services, we offer innovative solutions for male infertility, including hCG injections to restore or increase testosterone production.

Here’s a look at how hCG can help you build the family of your dreams.

Behind male infertility

There are many reasons why men may have trouble with fertility, including:

And the list goes on. In many cases, male infertility can be tied back to hypogonadism, a condition in which your body has problems with testosterone production, sperm production, or a combination of the two.

If we find that this is the case with your fertility issues, we can turn to an unlikely source to help solve the problem — the pregnancy hormone hCG.

How hCG works

When a woman becomes pregnant, cells in her placenta produce hCG hormones, which oversee the nourishment of the growing embryo. But medical researchers have found that when introduced to men, the hormone works as a luteinizing hormone, jumpstarting the gonads into producing testosterone and sperm.

In fact, the Food and Drug Administration has approved hCG injections for men who have hypogonadism and problems with fertility.

HCG may provide additional benefits outside of fertility, including:

We provide the hCG therapy in both injections or a powder form, and your treatment timeline depends on your results. Typically, we administer the hCG injections several times a week until we see regular and sustained spermatogenesis, which is healthy production of mature sperm.

We monitor your sperm and testosterone levels throughout your hCG treatments, making any necessary adjustments along the way.

We can halt the injections once you and your partner conceive, but we also encourage you to have your sperm collected and frozen for future use during this time.

If you’re struggling with infertility due to hypogonadism, please don’t hesitate to call us at our Rochester Hills, Michigan, office to find out whether hCG is just the solution you’re looking for.
