Question: Having a problem with decreased semen that i believe is coming from Low Testosterone due to weight gain. I want to go to a specialist for confirmation and treatment to fix this issue but im not sure who to go to. Is it a urologist or is it a endocrinologist? I've only heard of older men going to a urologist but im not sure

Brief Answer:
Usually an endocrinologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello, I'm Dr. Branch, thanks for using 'Ask a Doctor'. Fertility clinics are usually staffed by reproductive endocrinologists, though there are urologists who are trained in fertility problems (known as Andrologists). Either one should be able to start the evaluation and hopefully narrow down what might be causing the decreased semen, including determining whether low testosterone is the cause. The important thing, whether you see an endocrinologist or a urologist, is that they are trained in fertility issues, as they would be the experts in evaluating a decreased semen level.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any other questions about that, and I would be glad to discuss it with you further.
