Does cold medicine affect sperm count/quality? — The Bump

Does cold medicine affect sperm count/quality?

DH has a bunch of upper respiratory stuff going on and is wanting to take some medicine before going to bed.  I just realized I have no idea if medication will affect his sperm or not.  I feel like this is a stupid question, but...

  • I have never heard of this. Did you try googling it?

    If it does harm to sperm then you wouldn't know it until 90 days later anyway. The only thing it could possibly affect is your DH's "performance" if he is all dopey from the medicine. I would say that one night of cold medicine will not kill off all DH's sperm.
