rebif and infertility in men???

Postby jsimm » Tue Dec 20, 2011 8:25 pm

I know that their website says that there were no effects in male monkeys... but my wife and i have been ttc for months now and nothing is happening. we got pregnant really fast the first time and i have one kid from a previous marriage but i started rebif this year. i have heard that rebif can lower your spe count and reduce motility... has anyone else had this problem??? some posts i have read said that they stopped their meds for three months or so but i really don't want to go through the side effects that i just got used to again... does anyone know anymore about this???

A simple visit to your GP can help clear the air on this one. A simple sperm count is quick & easy. There are lots of reasons people - even with a track record - have a hard time conceiving. Far too early to blame either disease or med's.

Well I tried for over a year and nothing... Started seeing a ms specialist and discovered that rebif was making me sicker and not slowing my progression as I now have lesions down my spine along with growing ones in my brain... I was removed from rebif for a month and knocked my wife up. (Due in may) I am now on my 3rd round of tysabri and loving it! I have no flu like symptoms no injection site issues and no where near as heat sensitive... I can now mow the lawn instead of the wife:) I hope rebif works for all of you I'm just glad to be done:)

Have you tried another med... I did rebif because it was the only one that neurologist talked about but when I went to the specialist a year later this tysabri they have me now and I'm loving it! And I'm only on month 3

Fertility x Rebif44

My sperm count is low and still not have children.
This count is prior to using rebif.
So, I believe not be the remedy but of multiple sclerosis.
Do not leave me helpless, but I feel tired for sex.
I was surprised by the effects of Tysabre, even cut grass, this is very good.
