Answer:

You should see a urologist specializing in male infertility.  An elevated FSH does suggest testicular failure with regards to sperm production.  A testicular biopsy can be performed to determine whether you are making any sperm at all;  even small amounts can be frozen for use in in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures.  Also, the urologist will evaluate for any "blockage" that might prevent sperm from exiting the urethra.
