Aim: To investigate the relationship between semen volume and serum follicle — stimulating hormone (FSH), Luteinizing hormone (LH), testosterone (T), and prolactin (PRL) in azoospermic infertile patients.
Methods: Serum FSH, LH, testosterone and prolactin levels of 25 male infertile azoospermic patients were assayed by radioimmunoassay (RIA) and their data was analyzed for significant correlation with the same parameters of 25 control cases.
Results: 25 infertile patients had azoospermic. The values of serum FSH, LH, and prolactin were significantly raised (P < 0.05) while the serum testosterone significantly lower (P < 0.05). The semen volume in the azoospermic patients was negative strongly correlated to serum FSH, LH and serum prolactin. FSH (r = 0.93), LH (r = 0.95) prolactin (r = 93).
The semen volume was positive strongly correlated to serum testosterone (r = 0.90). Conclusion: high levels of serum FSH, LH, prolactin and low levels of serum testosterone can cause infertility by azoospermic directly.
