Does fever affect sperm quality?

    • <span  class="bbp-author-name">solelele</span>

      Hello doc,
      My husband’s been for the whole week with fever and otitis externa taking antibiotics, painkillers and antibacterial drops. We started preparing for a new IVF cycle last March 29, but we don’t think his sperm quality is good at the moment due to fever…. What do you recommend? Should we wait for 3 months to start a new cycle?

    • Dear solelele,

      Fever and antibiotics to treat otitis can affect sperm production. For this reason, specialists typically recommend that these patients postpone their IVF cycle at least 3 months counting from the day in which he has stopped taking antibiotics and other medications.

      I hope this helps,

      Best wishes
