Since I read an article stating that taking zinc supplement can raise your PSA number I have stopped taking it because my PSA score DID get elevated. I am 77 with a PSA of 18,9 at last reading and have adamantly refused to give a prostate biopsy sample because it will compromise my prostate. The urologist then offered me a 'phi(?) test" requiring a blood sample. The result showed I had a 33% chance of prostate cancer. I'll take those odds. He gave me a digital exam and said the left side of the prostate was hard while the right side was soft. He did not elaborate further and ended my visit. I have noticed that there is no semen when I orgasm with my wife. Is that normal at my age?
If a young man's low testosterone is a problem for a couple trying to get pregnant , gonadotropin injections may be an option in some cases. These are hormones that signal the body to produce more testosterone. This may increase the sperm count. Hedges also describes implantable testosterone pellets, a relatively new form of treatment in which several pellets are placed under the skin of the buttocks, where they release testosterone over the course of about three to four months. Injections and nasal gels may be other options for some men.
