I am a past cancer patient who received chemotherapy and cured about 25 yrs ago as a young man. Now that I am wanting to have a child naturally I find that I am producing no sperm (azoospermia). My FSH is 23, LH 8.4 and testoserone is 382. I want to use clomid or other medication first. I believe clomid would only marginally help since my FSH is high, but want to try a medication approach anyways. A bit of hope is better than none :) Would you consider it harmful to attempt drug treatment considering my numbers? Otherwise I have no health issues other than my past cancer treatment with chemotherapy only.

Dear seekingchildnaturally,
There is no disadvantage for trying. As you correctly mentioned, it is not the treatment of choice.
Please keep in mind that the female partner age needs to be taken into consideration.
I wish you best of luck,
Dr. Coffler
