    I'm surprised his GP didn't refer him to an endocrinologist (assuming that's who ran the blood panels). If he doesn't want to follow up with a specialist, then there's not much he could do besides running an aggressive course of hcg and clomid/nolvadex .

    Try running searches on azoospermia & hypogonadism. Also, look for the prescribing info for Organon's Pregnyl product. It offers some pretty good dosing strategies.

    Test enan is used as a male birth control method and brings the sperm count down to zero. Which is what happen to your husband. I tried to find the turn around time for a males sperm count to go back up but I couldn't find it. Check out these links as a start:

    Now granted that the weekly injections for male birth control are probably below the the dosage that your husband has been taking, but it's the same thing. Go on to google.com and search for keywords like male birth control FAQ. Hope you guys find an answer and good luck to you guys.

    FROM THIS SITE:

    Another interesting side effect of Testosterone enanthate is men-tioned in the bodybuilding magazine Muscle Media 2000, June July 1993 on page 45. Judging whether this is positive or nega-tive is left to the reader. 'A few years ago, the Lancet Medical Journal of England reported that they found testosterone (the proto-type anabolic steroid ) to be a remarkably effective form of male birth control. Researchers conducted a 12 month study which included 270 men and determined that weekly injections of the hormone testosterone were 'safe, stable, and effective.' They dis-covered that weekly testosterone injections had a success rate of 99.2% as a birth control method. That makes it more effective than the birth control pill (97%) and much more effective than condoms (88%). The study also revealed that the effects of the contraceptive injections were entirely reversible upon discontinu-ing administration of the drug and that the testosterone injec-tions produced minimal side effects."

    I wonder if my health insurance will cover male birth control injections! I wonder how much a week they give you, does anyone know?
