Boyfriend had a tumor on his pituitary


#1

My boyfriend had a tumor on his pituitary gland when he was young and now his body doesn’t produce sperm. Do any of you know if there are treatments out there for that?


#2

I heard about TESA surgery, but it may work only if there is blockage.

Not sure if there is any treatment if sperm is completely absent (no blockages).

Hope other women here can provide more help.

I suggest having him see an endocrinologist. They can do a blood workup first and then determine the problem (probably hormonal). There are medications that can help to stimulate his LH and FSH responses- which tell the testes to produce sperm. Hope this helps!
