Lamectin vs Fertility

Hi Doc

Appreciate a prompt answer here.

Hubby is on 25mg per day of Lamectin for Epilepsy. He''s been taking this for approx 20 years. Can this dosage affect the sperm quantity, quality or mobility? We did a sperm analysis test and a post-coital test a couple of years ago and the gynae said they all look good.

Been TTC 4 years now...

Dear SB

It is possible that medication such as Lamectin may affect the sperms and I suggest, although he has had a normal test 4years ago that he should repeat another semen analysis. If however a repeat semen analysis reveals a normal result, you can be rest assured that in his particular case it may have not affected him.
