What the thyroid pills were meant to do

In my last post I mentioned my family doctor put me on thyroid pills. They were meant to stimulate testosterone which in turn would stimulate sperm development.

It didn’t seem to work. The counts went 17M, 10M, and 2M. They got worse as time went on.

I watched this excellent webinar about the IVF process. If I can find the link I will post it. The doctor hosting the webinar said that too much testosterone could lower sperm count!!! The very next day I stopped the pills.

I also learned in that webinar that the sperm production process is almost a black box. They don’t really know what goes on in there.
