Treatment of hypogonadism and infertility

Show Summary Details

Preview

Special therapeutic modalities for individual disorders, where these are available, have been mentioned in the preceding chapters. However, the therapeutic principles of hormone substitution described below apply to a number of disorders. Areas of conventional treatment of male infertility that were not described in previous chapters will also be covered here.

When dealing with infertility in men, it is also important to consider the woman. Thorough diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting female reproductive functions are mandatory, since their optimization constitutes a substantial part of the treatment of male infertility.
