Can purmycin make me infertile?

I have been on oxypan for about 2 years for my acne. I am now on purmycin. Will the continued use of these tablets make me infertile as i would lik to fall pregnant in de next 2-3 years?

Hi dr dasoo. Thank you for your response. I am very confused now as i asked cyber doc the same question and he said that i must use a gel and that purmycin will make me infertile.. Can u explain please? I am trying to understand why my dermatologist would prescribe these tablets then.
