A semen analysis (SA) should be performed on all men of reproductive age prior to the commencement of testosterone supplementation therapy (TST). A baseline SA has numerous benefits including the ability to unmask occult azoospermia, act as a baseline measure of reproductive function, and provide a recovery target for management of TST-induced testicular dysfunction. Physicians treating men of reproductive age with TST should incorporate SA as part of their initial treatment protocol.
