Abstract:  A 36-year-old patient began showing signs of decreased testosterone several months after a vasectomy. He was started on 5 mg of testosterone in methylcellulose capsules twice a day. After 3 days of treatment, the patient was completely relieved of nocturia. Two months after beginning treatment, the patient reported that all symptoms were approximately 50% better. The patient is continuing treatment, with testosterone levels tested every 3 months.
