Dr Basu :

Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Dr Basu :

What is your question now?

Dr Basu :

Are you asking about efficacy of addyzoa?

Dr Basu :

The efficacy is not proven --herbal supplements with unreliable action.

Dr Basu :

So no guarantee it will work.

Customer:

i just want a solution to my problem

Dr Basu :

did you have any blood work done to check your hormone levels?

Customer:

i have gone throgh sugery for varicoceles

Customer:

and what amazes me is tha l have been a father before

Dr Basu :

did you get your testosterone and other male hormone levels checked?

Customer:

got tfive kids from another relationship

Dr Basu :

Varicocele can affect sperm count.

Dr Basu :

And that should normalize in 3 to 6 months.

Customer:

ok

Dr Basu :

However, at your age, there can be low hormones like loe testosterone, thyroid hormone etc.

Dr Basu :

Now there are better medications to expedite the process.

Dr Basu :

We suggest using HGH injections 3 times weekly for 3 months.

Customer:

pls advise

Dr Basu :

Also clomiphene citrate tablets can be used orally to stimulate sperm production.

Dr Basu :

HGH injections will be more effective in your case.

Customer:

ok

Dr Basu :

Sorry I meant HCG ( human chorionic gonadotropin) 200 IU 3 times weekly subq injections.

Dr Basu :

2000 IU 3 times weekly.

Dr Basu :

sorry about the typing errors.

Customer:

can u give send presricption for me pls

Dr Basu :

this is not a prescription site --as it is a felony.

Customer:

ok

Customer:

just recomendations

Dr Basu :

HCG injection can only be prescribed by your doctor in your country.

Customer:

ok

Dr Basu :

Yes We are based in the US.

Dr Basu :

Prescription should not be a problem as long as you know the medication and dosage.

Customer:

would give it a try and see how it works

Dr Basu :

it works in most cases.

Customer:

am not sure that would be sold me without paper prescription

Dr Basu :

you will need a valid prescription.

Dr Basu :

and why do you feel it will be a problem since you already went through surgery?

Customer:

would let him know

Dr Basu :

As far as I know, UK is very strict with online pharmacies

Customer:

yep

Dr Basu :

I have seen people going to jail for buying invalid scripts.

Dr Basu :

so not worth the risk.

Customer:

does m problems as any thing to do with having sex so often?

Dr Basu :

not at all

Dr Basu :

your problem was likely too much heat from varicocele damaging your sperms.

Dr Basu :

that has been addressed

Dr Basu :

HCG is to ramp up your sperms.

Customer:

its so worrying

Dr Basu :

understandable.

Dr Basu :

but same time curable in most cases.

Customer:

does viagra as anything to do with my sperm analysis

Dr Basu :

No --it just helps with the erection part not the fertility part.

Customer:

Customer:

Dr Basu :
