It would be best for your husband to stop taking testosterone if he intends becoming a father. High levels of testosterone aggravate aggressive behaviour. In any case why would he want to take extra testosterone?Fatherhood normally causes a temporary drop in men's testosterone levels and this causes a 'feel good' factor.

The testosterone will have a negative feedback on sperm production in your husband It will take at least 3 months after he stops it for his sperm count to normalize. It can take longer.
