You may have lost interest in intercourse and that could be why you’re doing TRT because as we all know, a positive affect from TRT is an increase in performance and drive. But, many ask the question, does testosterone therapy affect fertility? The true answer is yes and no.
Let us explain: Testosterone replacement therapy increases testosterone levels which affects the part of the brain (the hypothalamus and pituitary gland) which produces a chemical called gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GNRH). GNRH speaks with the pituitary gland to tell it to produce two other hormones: luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). FSH tells your testicles to produce sperm cells while LH triggers the production of testosterone. This is where the natural problem of Low T occurs. If this cycle fails, your body quits producing testosterone and your begin experiencing fatigue, stubborn fat, trouble losing weight, decreased sex drive and more. During testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) you may experience fertility issues because your body measures the presence of testosterone.
