Great article on an issue that has become more relevant with the propagation of testosterone therapy.
Another issue to consider is something we published in the CUAJ (http://www.cuaj.ca/index.php/journal/article/view/2259/1969) suggesting that all men of reproductive age should have a semen analysis done prior to commencement of testosterone therapy. Recovery can only occur to a baseline which, if not know, because difficult to establish.
