Welcome to ehealthforum,
Testosterone supplements are given in men to help increase the sperm counts. If the cause for low sperm count is obstruction or problem with production, then it might not work. The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out even with low counts or pre-cum, if you are close to your ovulation time at time of intercourse (afterall it takes only 1 healthy sperm to fertilize the egg).
Take care.
