View Full Version : DH on Sertraline

September 10th, 2015, 10:05 AM
Hey guys! My DH is on 100mg of Sertraline. Not for anything serious. He has a stressful job and overbearing boss. We concieved DS2 first month after about 3 months of him being on this medicine. I did a little Google research and there seems to be a good bit about this medication decreasing fertility.

Do any of you have any experience on this medicine or advice for us? I know you can find anything when googling so how much truth is there to this??He had a sperm analysis about 3 1/2 years ago and his numbers were well above average. I know we will give it a couple more months before getting an analysis (he hates it) and he really wants to get off the medication anyway. He HATES being on medicine but at the same time he is very scared to get off of it.

Share away please! :)

Yes, it's a real thing but lots of people have conceived on it. It may sway pink with him having been on this so long.

Thanks atomic! Let me ask one more thing, we talked about getting a home sperm analysis just to ease our minds. I know they are not always reliable but just until we wait it out a couple months before getting one from doctor. Do you recommend a certain brand?

I don't recommend brands of anything because it takes a level of research that I don't have time to keep up with.

Anything that is a brand name that you recognize should be fine.
