Conception

We are trying to conceive and I am currently taking clomid to assist with ovulation. My husband has just been diagnosed with measles. Should we stop trying? How will this effect his fertility and conception. Could the virus cause birth defects?
I have been vaccinated and have not contracted the virus.
Thank you.

The virus will not cause problems. If your husband has a fever this could temporarily affect sperm but the only result of this would be that you do not fall pregnant this cycle.
