My husband had a tumour on his pituitary and subsequent acromegaly about 10/11 years ago. Two years ago we got engaged and shortly after he had an appointment with his endocrinologist who told him for the first time since the tumour that he will have fertility problems. Something neither of us were aware of up until this point and he was quite shocked and upset about.
Anyway fast forward two years and we have just got married and are ready to start our family. So we have been seeing a specialist who advised us that the nebido drug he takes provides him with plenty of 'man' testosterone but none of the testosterone needed for producing sperm. So at the end of the month his injection is changing to hcg once the nebido is out of his system (we're lucky that we're in England so all of our treatment is on the NHS, I think it would be very costly otherwise). The doctor seems very positive and doesn't think it will be a problem, my husband is also quite optimisitic but I'm more skeptical. I've done some searching and found case studies where it has worked for some men but I was wondering if it has worked for anyone on here?
I would love to here other people's experiences about this problem. It's hard seeing friends and family having babies so easily and we haven't even properly started trying yet and are faced with so many problems!
