Clomid for guys? - any blokes taking it at the moment on FZ?

Hi after badgering consultant for some answers following an idiopathic male factor diagnoses, got 2nd opinion on my blood tests and was told my FSH level was low.
Have now been told to take clomid 50mg daily to sort my FSH out (hopefully), are their any FZ blokes who've had success with clomid in relation to boosting low counts?

Hi Demonix

My fertility consultant sometimes uses it for guys who have hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism; sometimes it works (a bit), sometimes it doesn't, it just depends on the individual. It's often used as part of the recovery cycle (purchased on the black market, sadly) for body builders who have taken anabolics to help kick start their testicles into production again. It's an oestrogen inhibitor. I'm wondering why your FSH is low though - have you a medical condition or have you used anabolic steroids in the past?

No have no current or previous medical conditions that I am aware of, and though I might be a flame haired adonis - I am definiteley not a steroid munching muscle mary!! (lol) My pre healthy me 6 pack was generally from local supermarket...

Blood work had norm levels for testosterone/prolactin/thyroid/LH but were low (2.5) on the FSH...

In fact here are the blood results:

FSH 2.5 , LH 4.1, Testosterone 14.9, Prolactin 150, TSH / Thyroid 1.76

Why what may cause low fsh ? - you able to interpret the above hormone levels SS?

You have me intrigued as to what may have lowered my FSH - I am interested in hearing your thoughts on possible causes.

For info for other FZ'ers normal range for an Adult male FSH is 1.5 to 12.4 mIU/ml (mIU/ml = milli international units per milliliter)

Have done some research .. don't think primary hypogonadism is a match for me > Hpogonadism causes

Secondary hypogonadism may be so hopefully FSH will rise on Clomid and in turn increase sperm production, 3 months time will know...

Am concerned that Overall, pituitary tumours are the commonest causes of hypogonadism followed by Klinefelter's syndrome. :8o:

Given the size of the UK population and number of men with male factor, I can't believe there aren't any other blokes on here with similar condition and treatment ? :innocent:
