Fertility drugs for males boost low sperm count in infertile men up to the normal limit i.e. 15 million per milliliter of semen. They are prescribed in case of secondary hypogonadism (improper functioning of testes) where the pituitary gland or the hypothalamus (part of the brain responsible for signalling the testicles to produce testosterone) is affected. Hormonal changes hinder the normal production of sperm and testosterones, the prescribed solution for which is fertility drugs. However, consult your doctor about the possible benefits and the right dosage of these hormonal medicines before taking them. Whether or not the medicines work in your case depend on your condition and the dosage of medicine.
