Prolistem® FAQs

What is Prolistem® treatment?

Prolistem® is a dietary supplement specifically formulated to azoospermia patients. Prolistem treatment has two main goals:
First: To improve the sperm count in the semen avoiding biopsy OR Second: The treatment improves the success chances of testicular sperm extraction.

Can anyone with azoospermia take Prolistem®?

No, Prolistem® is only for non-obstructive azoospermia (primary testicular failure).

I have tried many natural treatments but they didn't work, why is the Prolistem® different?

If you have non-obstructive azoospermia with testicular failure and you are taking a natural treatment to increase your sperm count by increasing your hormones, then you are trying to fix the wrong problem.

All natural treatments in the market increase testosterone levels and increase sperm count, but they are only good for men with a low sperm count and hormonal abnormalities. The Prolistem® treatment works via a different mechanism. You can find more information on our website.

I have non-obstructive azoospermia and my doctor recommended an HCG injection before testicular sperm extraction (TESE). Is this the correct procedure?

In 2012, the Department of Urology at Presbyterian Hospital (New York) published an article about the hormone treatments before a TESE:
“Men with non-obstructive azoospermia and hypogonadism often respond to hormonal therapy with an increase in testosterone levels, but neither baseline testosterone level nor response to hormonal therapy appears to affect overall sperm retrieval, clinical pregnancy or live birth rates.”

In a few words, how does Prolistem® work?

Researchers have found that in non-obstructive azoospermia cases, testosterone might actually be inhibiting spermatogonial differentiation. Prolistem® restores fertility by reducing testosterone levels in Stage I and II of the treatment.

Does the testosterone reduction affect my health?

No, your testosterone levels will stay in the normal range, as natural herbs cannot completely reduce the testosterone levels.

My doctor said that azoospermia is incurable and there is no treatment?

That’s not true. Many cases of azoospermia like maturation arrest can be fixed with multivitamins and micro-nutrients.

I asked my doctor about Prolistem® and he had not heard about it. Why?

Prolistem® is new product, but the treatment idea is not new. Unfortunately, some physicians do not take new treatments seriously and they prefer the TESE and the ICSI that cost you at least $20,000.

What if I miss taking Prolistem® for a day or two?

Try not to miss taking Stage I and II treatments. Although missing a day or two in Stage III will not affect the overall results, missing many days could affect the results. If you miss a day or two, do not double up or take more than the suggested dosage.

When will I see some results?

Results vary and depended on the azoospermia level. It is known that a complete Spermatogenic cycle is 74 days, divided as 26 days (almost four weeks) for the pre-meiotic stage (Prolistem® treatment increase the cells in this stage), and 48 days (almost seven weeks) for the meiotic and later stages.

No. Keep it in a cool, dry, and dark place.

What I should know about Prolistem®?

Men who are found to have primary testicular failure will likely require the use of surgical sperm retrieval methods to recover viable sperm for IVF.
We highly recommend taking the six months course of Prolistem® treatment for two reasons:
First, our treatment can improve your sperm count in the semen and avoid the biopsy.
Second, if the semen does not contain any sperm, this treatment improves your success chances of testicular sperm extraction.
Everyone should consider testicular sperm extraction after this treatment.
