Elevated FSH is associated with decline in sperm concentration

“We found that men with an elevated FSH but a normal semen test were more likely to have a decline in their sperm concentration and their total motile sperm count over time…when compared to men also starting with the normal semen test but with a normal FSH,” says Joshua Halpern, MD.
