Anti depressants and fertility!???

Postby Rose0210 » Tue Oct 28, 2014 2:10 am

We have been trying for a few months for baby number 2, and today I was reading that my DHs medication he takes for depression, Is linked with low sperm count etc. We will be going to his dr in a few weeks so will bring it up then. Just wanting to know anyone else who's experienced this and any success!?? After two miscarriages before my Son, I was hoping this time would be easier. Always conceived so easily but that was before he started meds. Thanks so much if anyone can help.

I know that there are different meds for depression, and some are better for TTC (and being pregnant in women) than others. I'd ask the doctor what might be a better medication for him.
