Re: Kallmans sydrome

I'm sorry to hear about the syndrome, I can't relate to that exactly, but my husband has retrograde ejaculation (sperm doesn't come out) and he also has a low sperm count, and I don't ovulate very month. We are quite a pair! I just wanted to wish you luck on your journey.

Re: Kallmans sydrome

During pregnancy, every unborn boy's testes are actually located in the area of his abdomen, but before birth, the testes are encouraged to descend into the scrotum where they remain for the rest of his life. If your partner was, or still is cryptorchid (with concealed testes), he may have to undergo a special operation called a orchidopexy, before he start fertility treatment. There is actually quite a good success rate for both men and women with KS undergoing fertility treatments. Though with the men it does depend if there was any testicular damage early in life, but on the whole most men who undertake fertility treatments with injections can achieve a certain level of fertility from anything from 6 to 18 months.
Try to consult a specialist reproductive endocrinologist at this stage, there might be very few who have practically handle KS cases.

Re: Kallmans sydrome

As an experimented researcher about this kind of medical topics, i can say that i've never heard about it, so its a bit confuse.. Anyway, you should go to an specialized center in order to check it and make clear whats the problem. Once you check that, i encourage you to visit a doctor and ask about reproductive medicine like IVF or artificial insemination to achieve what u are looking for.

Re: Kallmans sydrome

A subset of patients with hypogonadism have isolated GnRH deficiency and loss of the sense of smell (anosmia). This disorder is called Kallmann syndrome and is usually caused by a mutation in a gene that directs the formation of the olfactory (sense of smell) system and the formation of parts of the hypothalamus. People affected fail to go through puberty unless they are given sex hormone replacement therapy and in addition usually have no sense of smell (anosmia).
Your husband may require hormonal work-up. Fertility shots can be used to normalize sperm counts, although this may require 6-12 months of treatment.
I found the below link very informative about this condition.
