--Hi, all. I was wondering if any Doctors on this board know if there is a known cancer risk when using Clomid in males similar to women (I understand each person reacts differently to medicines)? My Wife was saying that her gynecologist said that when women take Clomid, there is an increased risk of cancer from using it after a couple of cycles. Is this true when men take it? Is the potential for cancer about the same or lower or higher with men when we take Clomid? I do not have a DR. appt. until Nov. 17, so until then, I hope this board will work. Thanks.View Thread
--Hi. Well, my main problem is low testosterone. I really need to start back on injections (I recently got a prescription for it, but haven't used it yet), but we are trying to have a baby, and the first time I was on testosterone (sometime last year), the Dr. said there was absolutely no sperm in the sample. I was told Clomid would boost my sperm count while being able to use testosterone. I cannot find a thing about an increase risk of cancer for males when using Clomid, but my Wife's gynecologist said there is an increase of cancer when women take it, so I was concerned it might have the same negative side effects.
--Later on, I was tested, and my sperm count was considered "normal" in the letter I received from the Dr. office. I can certainly live without the testosterone injections, it's just that I sometimes feel like a woman going through menopause with the hot flashes and stuff. I wish you best of luck with conceiving.View Thread
