They looked at medical records of more than 1,500 men with an average age of 35 who sought fertility treatment at the two clinics. Men sought infertility treatment at two U.S. clinics reported taking prescription testosterone supplements and it was found that the sperm counts skyrocketed after they stopped taking the male hormone.

The study co-author, Dr. Peter Kolettis, a professor of urology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, stated that the supplements have become a preventable cause of infertility. Moreover, the supplements had side-effects such as male breast growth and blood clots.
